Gray is a modifier of coat color in horses. Gray horses are born colored (bay, black, chestnut, etc) and lighten in color as they age. There are different stages of grey. A single horse may go through all stages of grey or only one or two. Most grey horses end up nearly white.
Dapple gray is an intermediate stage not seen on all grays, but often considered highly attractive. It consists of a dark hair coat with "dapples," which are dark rings with lighter hairs on the inside of the ring, scattered over the entire body of the animal. It is another possible intermediate step in the graying process of the horse. Dappled grays should not be confused with the slight dappling "bloom" seen on horses that are very healthy or slightly overweight, as "bloom" dapples disappear should the horse lose condition.
To groom a horse,you need a few essential things.
- Curry Comb -Using this,you brush in circles.
- Brush- Start at the front of the horse work your way back/down.
- Hoof Pick - Pinch the back of the horses leg,and pick it up. Work around the "V" Formation (Frog) in the horses hoof and work outwards.
- Mane & Tail comb -Start at the bottom to get knots out and work your way up.
