BrightSquare Challenge; End Of April!

I have so enjoyed BrightSquare Challenge hosted by Becky ~ The Life of B, she does such an amazing job putting together galleries of everyone that joins in the fun. This will be my last post as the month is almost over and I wanted to put together one last entry. As I was thinking about it and as I’ve mentioned before and I know others think this way too, of sharing a theme. I thought it only fitting to share my love of my horses! ❤

This is from last year with Chloe’s dark grey roan coat glistening in the sun. My grey horse Zack is bright white and his coloring is actually called a flea bitten grey. He has a bunch of dark flecks which are the “flea bitten” parts. Kind of funny because horses do not have fleas. I’ve never looked up the history of how this name came about, but he was the sweetest horse and Chloe’s best friend. More the other way around, as Zack was very attached to Chloe! Silly boy!

What beautiful FUN memories and Chloe and I are doing great. It brings me great joy to share and I hope you can feel the joy and happiness these beautiful creatures bring to my life. Thank you Becky for a wonderful challenge and I am so happy I have been able to participate. 😀

Happy Bright Cowgirl,

~Diana ❤

  1. oh Diana, what a perfect way to finish your squares this month. Your horses are beautiful, and love the one of you too 😀

    I’ve never heard of flea bitten grey, am wondering if it is what we would call dapple grey?

    1. Thank you sooooo much Becky! I’m so happy to share and be a part of your challenges!! Incredibly FUN! 🤠❤️
      There are 2 types of grey’s, the dapple grey and the flea bitten grey. The dapple grey’s as they age turn pure white, where the flea bitten grey as they age get these brown flecks throughout their coat. As I looked this up I found that the flea bitten grey is more rare than the white grey! That could be why you’ve not heard of the flea bitten grey. I thought I’d elaborate here as I’m sure others may read these comments. It was a great question, maybe should have added that in my post! ❤️🐴

      1. On another topic. I am posting about the changing seasons up here and have two videos of me on a forest trail, one in December and then one last week. For the recent one I did a voice over , inspired by you. I have put a link in the post to the post where you are on the trail and talking about the places in the neighbourhood. So you will get a request to approve that link on Saturday. I think readers will like to see the two very different types of trail rides you can go on with a horse!

      3. I also wanted to tell you Anne how you’ve inspired me so much with your beautiful blog, your horse knowledge and all the things I’ve learned over the years reading and watching what you share. For you to include me on your blog with the trails you enjoy there with Biasini is truly an honor. I just had to tell you that, you are so very kind. Love, Diana ❤️

    1. Hahaha, you make me giggle so very true and you owned one too!! It’s amazing how much washing these grey/white horses need. When I groomed for horse shows those grey’s were the hardest to keep clean and show ready! 🤣 Thank you for your kind comments, you are the sweetest! ❤️

      1. Hahaha, sorry it’s been so frustrating!! I’ll try the new “just me”. Do you have it public or private? I’m technically challenged and am afraid to change much and I actual pay WP for my blog site. I did that so that I could share my videos of my horses/trail rides. It’s worth it to me and I found out if I stop paying I’ll lose my domain name. So I didn’t want to start all over again so I just keep paying. It’s not much, I think $8 a month but you pay yearly. Sorry I’ve gone on so, just I have felt frustrated before with my blog stuff! But I really enjoy it!! ❤️

      3. Yes, Chloe does have a lot of grey color which really stands out when she is wet! She is a bay roan, so she will stay this color without turning white like a grey horse would. Roans have a lot of white hairs mixed in with the dominant color which in her case is a bay. So the dark brown is mixed with white and grey colors. She’ll get more silvery as summer comes! The roan coloring seems to change from season to season!! ❤️🐴
