Arabian Horse



Haven't had a lot of time to work on new things lately, but I do hope to get back to more art soon.

I didn't know this before, but all Arabians, no matter the coat color, have black skin, except under white markings. Black skin provided protection from the hot desert sun. Although many Arabians appear "white," they are not. A white hair coat is usually created by the natural action of the gray gene, and virtually all "white" Arabians are actually grays. (info taken from a wikipedia article... gotta love wikipedia!)
