    This is Reckless Dan, an unusual grey brindle Quarter Horse. Most brindle horses have dark stripes on a lighter body color, but a rare few have white stripes on a dark body color. While it is possible that white brindles are chimeric (and certainly some may be), the current thought is that the color is probably the result of a one-time mutation, probably of rabicano.✨✨

    Grey Brindle Quarter Horse: The brindle coat pattern is caused by a rare genetic occurence called chimerism. A chimeric horse develops when fraternal twins fuse into one embryo in utero-- beautiful horse!

    How weird!! Love it!! Reckless Dan, a Grey Brindle Quarter Horse. Brindle is what is called a ‘chimeric’ gene. Chimeric genes occur when a mare is pregnant with two non-identical twins, but the two embryos become ‘fused’ into one. What you actually have is two coat colors from two different horses all mixed up. This means chimeric genes, including brindles, are almost totally random and it is almost impossible to breed for it. Geneticists are still trying to figure out the truth behind the brindle gene.

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life has been radically changed. -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I'm not overly find of cats, but growing up I had a black cat named Whiskers. I got her at the age of 4 and she died when I was 21. She got sick suddenly but held on until I could get home from college and say goodbye. I missed her a lot in the beginning and think of her every time I see a black cat. I ♥ you Whiskers!

Love......The Akhal-Teke horses are vigorous, excitable, and restless. Thousands of years of selective breeding have left their mark not only on their physical appearance and efficiency, but also on their behavior. These horses are not only sensible but also very sensitive; they are even able to respond to mental suggestions of humans. Their intelligence is not comparable to any other breed.
