Tristan is a funny sort of color. He’s a deep red in the winter, and in the summer he’s quite distinctly more roan. His mane and tail are frosted the whole year ’round. I’ve tried many different color combinations on him over the years, and always default to black and white, with a hint of gray. I do so wish I could do more colors, though.
I just spent some time playing with a fun tool to design your horse’s color scheme. Now, it’s not comprehensive, and the interface is a little clunky, but it is a marvelous time waster. (The things you are reduced to doing when you are being dumped on by a foot of snow…)
Here’s what Tristan currently looks like to go XC.
