CE's Horse Basics

Postby BTD » Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:47 am

None of these are adoptable as they are CE only for now. Mythical breeds coming soon.

I did these so CE had something for members had something to look forward to, Right now they are not for sell yet, I still have to get Storm's Shop up and going first.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Bays:
Body color ranges from a light reddish-brown to very dark brown with "black points". (Points refer to the mane, tail, and lower legs.) The main color variations are:

Bay:

Dark:
Image
Blood:
Image
Brown:

Chestnuts:
A reddish body color with no black. Mane and tail are the same shade or lighter than the body coat. The main color variations are:

Chestnut:
Image
Liver:
Image
Sorrel:
Image
Light/Blond:
Image

Greys:
A horse with black skin but white or mixed dark and white hairs. Gray horses can be born any color, and lighten as they age. Most will eventually gray out to either a complete white or a "fleabitten" hair coat. Most "white" horses are actually grays with a fully white hair coat. A gray horse is distinguished from a white horse by dark skin, particularly noticeable around the eyes, muzzle, flanks, and other areas of thin or no hair. Variations of gray that a horse may exhibit over its lifetime include:

Duns:
Yellowish or tan coat with primitive markings, sometimes called "dun factors": a darker-colored mane and tail, a dorsal stripe along the back and occasionally faint horizontal zebra stripings on the upper legs and a possible transverse stripe across the withers. There are several variations of dun:

Grullo/Grulla/Blue Dun:
Image
Red Dun:
Image
Bay/Zebra Dun:
Image


Leopards:
There are a group of coat patterns caused by the leopard gene complex. It should be noted that not every horse with leopard genetics will exhibit hair coat spotting. However, even solid individuals will exhibit secondary characteristics such as vertically striped hooves and mottled skin around the eyes, lips, and genitalia, plus a white sclera of the eye. Several breeds of horse can boast leopard-spotted (a term used collectively for all patterns) individuals including the Knabstrupper, Noriker, and the Appaloosa. There are several distinct leopard patterns:

Varnish Roan:

Piebald:
Image
Skewbald:

Overo:
Image
Sabino:
Image
Tabiano:
Image
Tovero:
Image

Rabicano:

Roans:
A color pattern that causes white hairs to be evenly intermixed within the horse's body color. Roans are distinguishable from greys because roans typically do not change color in their lifetimes, unlike gray that gradually gets lighter as a horse ages. Roans also have heads that are either solid-colored or much darker than their body hair, and do not lighten. Variations of roan include:

Red Roan:

Bay Roan:

Blue Roan:

These are colors only, hard to believe right lol

I so happy you like them, Pain in the butt they were but I am happy with them. Lol I guess I am happy to get the real world basics down even if they don't look that great. SN wanted to add in a wild west themed area to CE and I wanted to replace the horses we had been using, so these got made.

Thanks a few of them I had to take a bit ley way with since the only way to truly tell was either looking at the skin or DNA test.

I still need to get the Donkeys done before I start the mythical horses, but those I will need to edit the base to do that and add larger breeds but for now I got the colors so I am happy.

The mythical ones will be the fun part! I already have the Unicorn basics worked up in my head but these needed to come first.
