A pinto horse in a classical etching. Although the horse's head is a bit too flat to be realistic, its pattern is pictured beautifully and was probably the whole barn's envy. Not very sure which pattern this is, but msot likely a tobiano (four white legs) with sabino giving it a blaze and amping up and 'breaking' the white blotches. A shame the tail is docked; this is unfortunate for the horse, and tobianos often have very flashy tails.
bofransson: Nils Kreuger, “En Liten Grålle” (A Little Horse). Although of course a rather abstract artwork, the dark points of this horse give the impression of a bay roan. The beautiful play of light and texture really brings the lively creature to life.
This utopic painting of a woman with her ponies and dog shows two stereotypes in animal breeding: the 'Lassie' dog, a collie with brown fur and white points, and the flaxen chestnut shetlander. More often than in other horse breeds do chestnut shetlanders carry flaxen. And one must say it looks quite well on them.
