Here’s something you don’t see very often from me: horses. But these seemed like unusually handsome specimens, and with nice, soft morning lighting. I suppose they’re some particular kind of horse, but I don’t know which they are. “Brown and white” is about the closest I can come.

UPDATE: Probably skewbald (brown and white) pintos.
