Presentation at BOYCC


I will be doing a presentation on horse breed mythology and the history of horse color at the BOYC Convention on Saturday, May 21.  Hopefully I won’t scandalize too many people when I talk about tobiano Friesians.

As part of this, I completely restructured and updated the old “What is Possible?” charts.  I also updated a second set of charts dealing with less common breeds that were never published.  After I return from the convention, I will post both to the studio website.  The new charts include some of the more recent dilution genes (like pearl and mushroom), and break appaloosa patterning down by its component parts, since not all breeds have all the components.  The charts still don’t cover all the breeds or even all the known color oddities, but they are much closer to it than they were.
