Mystery solved

Once again our monthly mystery horse is actually two horses. But this time instead of being Paint horses with unusual patterns, we have a dilute mystery! Both horses have pale gold coats, darker silvery manes and tails, and unusual light eyes. They both also have freckly skin around their eyes. The fascinating thing is that genetically the two horses aren't the same colour at all!

To identify their colours and patterns we tested for red/black, agouti, cream, pearl, champagne, silver and Appaloosa.
