Artist's Description

For everyone who likes my “Mardango High Hope” shot (below), here is the resulting wee bundle of joy – a quarter horse colt named “Nevada Pale Moon”.

When he was born, the owners & I all thought he was a cremello (a double cream gene resulting in a cream rather than golden coat colour), and this opinion was further enhanced by those wonderful blue eyes (another genetic factor for cremellos). However, as he grew older & lost his baby fuzz, the underlying coat was revealed to be golden after all. Some research on horse colour genetics followed & it was discovered Pale Moon is one of a very small percentage of blue-eyed palominos!

I fell in love with him when he was just a few hours old, it was tempting to add horse number eight to the herd – right up until I thought about the winter feed costs! However, since then I have purchased his mother :)
