Blacks and Bays


Name: Blythe Spirit

Breed: Hanoverian
Year: 1999
Description: Dark brown/blackish? Dark brown body with darker shading. Mane and tail are black. All four legs are tinted white (to odd effect on a body this dark). Hooves are peach/pinkish.
Markings: Snip marking, small and pink. There are no true foot markings, but all legs are tinted white.

Notes: Promotional photos suggest black, but this horse is molded dark brown. Hair color (black) suggests dark bay, but the legs and muzzle have no black shading. This is a mysterious coat color, but typical of 1999's strange entries.








Name: Moment by Moment

Breed: Wurttemburger
Year: 2003-04
Description: Bay mare. Reddish brown body with darker shading. Black shading on muzzle and legs. Mane and tail are black.
Markings: Star or blaze (?) on face. Socks on both front feet.

Similars: UK Thoroughbred Mare (below) may be near identical, but Moment by Moment has two socks instead of four. Also, their ranges (North American vs. European) should distinguish them.

Description: Bay mare. Reddish brown body with darker shading. Black shading on muzzle and legs. Mane and tail are black.
Markings: Star on forehead. Socks on all four feet.

Similars: Moment by Moment may be near identical, but UK Thoroughbred mare has four socks instead of two. Also, their ranges (European vs. North American) should distinguish them.

Description: Dark bay blanket appaloosa. Body is dark brown with darker/blackish shading. Mane and tail are black. Hooves are pinkish/peach.
Markings: White star. No foot markings.
Notes: Ah Pah Ahl was altered slightly and re-released in 2007 as this nameless Appaloosa mare, in a set with a similarly altered foal.
Jury is still out (or has lost interest) on whether these are considered distinct animals.

Similars: Check against Ah Pah Ahl 1. Ah Pah Ahl 2 has no socks, and may have a looser blanket pattern. (This one's edge-spots don't quite line up with the blanket fringe.)
