    Ok.... so i was googling, and i found this palomino:

    Ive seen that glowiness before, on pics of a different breed of horse (tekes, maybe?), but he looks like a QH? maybe its just the light...

    And here is a really strange colored horse.... IDK what they call it, but it almost looks like a roan with a weird mane and tail? Actually, scrap that. I have no idea:

    And a very......metallic stud...this is a piece of what it said:
    "Sport Horse Designated Rare Classic Champagne 1/2 Friesian"

    That's just the sheen that sometimes comes with the cream gene (what causes palomino). However it's possible that horse has the satin gene (causes hollow hair shafts which makes them look metallic).

    The second one is indeed a roan with a weird mane and tail. :) It's a black silver roan.

    The third is indeed a classic champagne as they say.

    The second horse looks like a "silver bay" that is also a roan. Very, very cool. Its been FOREVER since I've been on here!

    The third horse has the champagne gene. Just another variation of a color modifier (like cream & dun).
