The Color of Horses

By Eliza

I love looking at a pastureful of horses and thinking about color.  The range of bays alone is wide--blood bay, red bay, brown--not to mention the flashy champagnes and red roans.  Here is a explanation of horse colors from the Horse Genome Project at the University of Kentucky (where else?)  If, like me, you like seeing the beauty of all the horse colors, but glaze over when you see any word ending in -zygous, check out this page.
