Where there’s mud, there’s water

Long live seeps deep enough to coat a mustang.

For bonus points, guess this pony’s true color!? 🙂

Nope. Not sorrel. 🙂 (I’ll answer with her color later!)

No clue on the color but what a great photo ! Thought I was looking at an aerial view of a river delta !

Thats what I thought too!! Boy do I remember THOSE days. The hours spent scraping off mud. Nice that these ponies done have to put up with that.

Crazy, right? You can see her mane at very upper left (her head is down, she was grazing), and the main part of the image is her left-side barrel. The back of her shoulder, girth area and just above the elbow of her left front leg shows at left. Flank to the right. I love the river-delta visual!

What came to my mind was a topography map. Such a cool picture. My guess, Gray. Or, maybe pinto. That’s a lot of mud!

Also cool visual of a topography map! It IS a whole heckuva lotta mud! 🙂 Nope to grey (gray … I just like the ‘e’ spelling ;)) or pinto, but good guesses!

She’s a horse that doesn’t usually appear on the blog, but she was SUCH a mudball that I couldn’t resist photographing her in all her muddy glory. 🙂

Mud and hair, wet and drying. 🙂

Now that is an amazing pic, TJ! Reminds me of what geologists call “ripple marks” in sandstone – petrified lake or sea floors. I cannot even imagine who this is in all her “mudness!”

Yes – ripple marks in sandstone (I’ve just seen a lot of it in Utah)! Also a great visual! 🙂

Black.

What does the rest of the horse look like?

Not black … but you’re the closest! 🙂 Almost her entire left side was COATED in mud; her right side was lovely and (fairly) clean (this is Disappointment Valley, after all – dust is ubiquitous!

This is a little mare named JayK – in honor of the late, great and much missed Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick. She is very dark, dark bay! 🙂 Thanks for all your guesses and the great visuals … all of which represent wonderful and wondrous features of our natural and wild world!

Mud is one of the best defenses against flies and heat…
