Vermo in 2004[edit]

So I digged into my personal archives and found negatives of pictures taken in Vermo, late spring 2004. These are not all; I haven't scanned and published everything in Commons yet, but the unpublished ones don't add much information, being mostly generic "commonly chestnut Finnhorse trotters". Views on the usability of these shots? Pitke (talk) 13:16, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Brown Finns[edit]

Contacted a person about this one and the other; turned out this brown one is also a Finnhorse! These are the best three pics of the brown one. Will not mention names since they're not as presentable as they could be, but Finnhorses brown Finnhorses *dances* Pitke (talk) 11:31, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Newsflash, he's "just" a really sooty bay. Summer pics coming up. Pitke (talk) 08:17, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
See User:Pitke/Lightbox#Summer pics and celebs, first picture in list for his summer look. Pitke (talk) 16:33, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
IMHO, I find the distinctions between dark bay, "sooty" bay, and "seal brown" to be kind of annoying. Apparently there is a "seal brown" test, and I agree that there is sootiness clearly visible in other colors, but I still do not fully really get this or have a handle on how much of this is genetically proven and how much is wishful thinking... (partly reflecting my annoyance of those who like to market dark bays as "black bays"--as if they are more likely to produce black than others, which they are not... ). OK to move this to my wiki talk page to chat more or just move it to the discussion page here... Montanabw (talk) 00:13, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Fresh pictures from last weekend[edit]

Some of these might be nice after cropping and some lighting level work. Pitke (talk) 11:01, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
