    Many thanks Pete for so richly entertaining us with your series. Is it really a year? It seems the older one gets the faster time flies. Perhaps I had better buy an E-5 before it's too late

      Being White it also keeps them much cooler - as do Arab whites ! and if the horse has at some time, eaten Ragwort, it will suffer from the sun on it and that affects its skin and liver.

        I agree with that! I've had to use a fly-sheet on one of mine before - and I'm lucky with my present horse (grey arab) that he seems to have no problems in that way!

          Yes Arab bloodlines cope with the heat and sun well ! but ... not the cold and wet british weather
