Colourful Equines

Freedom’s Jolie Prize, one-of-a-kind buckskin Shire mare.

Her colour came to be because in the early days of the American Shire Horse Association non-Shire mares were approved for breeding due to the lack of purebred Shires in the country. One of these mares was a cream carrier and the gene was passed on through a line of smoky black (black + 1 cream gene) horses, only becoming apparent when it was inherited along with an agouti gene (which turns a black coat bay).
