    Maybe it's more recognizing their own breed rather than color?

    I started with 2 Delawares, 2 Black Stars & one (B&W) Houdan.
    Houdan was always off by herself unless she was with one of the Black...

    I prefer early over late.

    Since my horses are seldom stalled, I like to leave getting them in until about 1/2h out from scheduled appt for vet or shoer.

    Coanteen beat me to it.
    I'll take <3 Horse, or any of its warm&fuzzy equivalents over furbaby anyday.

    Ask your vet about Biozide gel < betadine in gel-form.
