Ekho - An Arabian Horse | This horse struck my fancy because she has very unique coloring. According to the owner, she started out bay like her mother, but has been slowly turning grey! I've never seen this before, and found it striking!
Most of us have never experienced horses like this: they are semi wild and live in big herds. Small and tough, most of the horses we rode were geldings whose manes and tails are cut to make rope. But a stallion’s mane is never cut....hence the dramatic hairdos!
Leopard Appaloosa - Here is a neat fact: The Appaloosa breed was developed by the Nez Perce indians in the rolling hills of the Palouse area - what is now Eastern WA and OR, and Western ID. They were originally called "Palouse Horses" by settlers because of the Palouse river that flowed through the area the Nez Perce called home. The name over time got changed to Appaloosa. The Appaloosa museum is just 30 minutes from where I live, in a town called Moscow, ID.
