So one of my pet peeves is that people don’t realize what breed Phoenix is. To me it seems incredibly obvious that he is a paint. He not only has white above his front knee, but a few other spots as well.
Phoenix’s dad was one of the foundation sires of the american paint horse association (APHA), kicked out of the AQHA for having too much white. Phoenix’s sire’s name was Mr. Fancy Bonanza. Here is a link to an article about Mr. Fancy Bonanza.
I don’t have any real information on Phoenix’s mom, and well, he looks like his daddy only more refined. Handsome pony!
Anyways, here’s some of P’s hidden paint!
Gave P a nice bareback ride tonight and he was more like his normal self. Of course it was 70 degrees out so that may have slowed him down a bit, lol. My friend Christie helped me graze the boys afterwards since she had already grazed her pony.
