This work, which represents three vividly colored blue horses looking down in front of a landscape of rolling red hills, is characterized by its bright primary colors and a portrayal that simplicity, and a profound sense of emotion. According to the 'Encyclopædia Britannica', “the powerfully simplified and rounded outlines of the horses are echoed in the rhythms of the landscape background, uniting both animals and setting into a vigorous and harmonious organic whole.”.

Marc gave an emotional or psychological meaning or purpose to the colors he used in his work: blue was used for masculinity and spirituality, yellow represented feminine joy, and red encased the sound of violence and of base matter. This is one of Marc's earliest major works depicting animals and the more important of his series of portraits of horses in various colors.

When he moved to Montana from California in 1966, he intended to live there permanently and be an asset to the state: “I always knew that someday I’d have a specific project ... The horse sculptures were installed on Camp Hill on land donated by Dean Folklore of Wheat Montana on a patch of fenced acreage that is not suitable for farming.

Blue horses installation as seen from Highway 287The sculptures are realistic enough to appear live from a distance, but are intended to be somewhat “impressionistic.” They are posed in a variety of realistic positions from foals suckling mother's milk, to alert steeds, to supine equines.

Each horse is painted blue with accents of black and white to give their forms a sense of depth. They have manes and tails made of polyester rope that has been unraveled and attached so it moves realistically in the wind.

The 4,000 feet of rope needed for the horses was unraveled by hand by the employees at Reach, Inc., a supported workplace for people with developmental disabilities. The water that passes through this massive filtration system feeds the soil and grasses that grow strong horses unlike anywhere else in the world.

Legend has it that a horse called “Big Led” turned blue from grazing in nourishing bluegrass pastures his entire life. The portrait shown is an adaptation of the actual oil painting of the famous racehorse “Lexington” by the renowned equine artist Edward Troy.

But the background coat color for a blue roan is always black. In fact, the Jockey Club, which registers Thoroughbred horses, has been registering gray horses as “Gray or Roan” for centuries, even though a true roan didn’t exist until Lilac Hill was foaled in 2000.

True roans are described as classic, and they do not include the partials or patterns, such as varnish, Fabiano or Sabine. This means the horse has an even mix of white and black hairs across their full bodies (excluding the legs and face).

So, not only are true blue roans distinct, they are actually different in their genes. There are many unique roan variations but, most stock horse registries recognize three distinct types for registration purposes.

About is kind of a funny word if you haven’t heard it before so let me explain. Base Colorblind GeneAgouti General Variation Blacked or EEA Blue RoanBayEE or EEA or Away RoanChestnuteeAA, AA or aired Roan Dominantly inherited genes can’t skip generations.

As mentioned, two non-roan parent horses can’t produce a roan baby. Some Sabine horses express their coat color in a way that makes it appear that they are roan.

The thing is, a maximally expressed Sabine could look like a true roan. In fact, this is fairly common in purebred Arabian horses where the roan gene does not exist.

Many other breeds experience patterns that are irregular patches of white with rough edges known as Sabine. Unlike a true roan that will have an even mix of white hairs all across their main body, Fabiano has white hairs that are more clustered around the base of the tail and on the flanks.

Photo by the author. A varnish roan can be found in breeds with appaloosa characteristics. In a varnish roan appaloosa, patches of skin that are closely adhered to the skeleton, such as on the face or at the legs, do not grow as much white hair.

As I mentioned above, the Jockey Club routinely registers horses as “Gray or Roan”. So, if your foal looks roan and has at least one parent that is gray, further investigation is warranted.

This is one of many reasons horse coat color genetics is so fascinating to learn! I do want to make a quick note about the roan parent rule.

Roan always expresses itself in some fashion when present and, if a horse has it, they can pass it. I say almost always because there is a very small possibility that an individual roan horse could be produced from a non-roan parent through gene mutation.

This is, in fact, how the roan gene came to even exist in the Thoroughbred breed. That being said, if you want to try and breed your mare or stallion for a blue roan foal, here are some things to consider increasing your chances.

If either parent is homozygous for about (AA) there is zero chance of producing a true blue roan foal. This will help you choose the mate that will give the best possible chance for a blue roan foal.

This guarantees the foal will be black based and carry roan. This depends on whether either horse carries any other color modifying genes.

In addition, if your horse tested AA, there is a 50% chance of passing on the dominant about gene to the foal which would result in a bay roan instead of a blue roan. This includes the Arabian horse, Suffolk Punch, Baffling.

Some famous roan horses include Red Man, born in 1935, and stallion Blue Valentine, born in 1957, who gained fame on the rodeo circuit. While the coats grays outs further, it can often have a roan-like appearance in the middle of the process, leading to that mistake in perception.

Roans, on the other hand, do not have a graying gene to enable them to grow more white hair as they age. The fact that they are a bit of an optical illusion of white on black, too, just makes them all the more special.

While this is no doubt good news for you blue -eyed horse owners, you’re not completely out of the woods. The study did find that blue -eyed horses appear to be more susceptible to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) than their dark-eyed brethren.

Try to avoid exposing horses to direct sunlight at peak hours as much as possible. Unless they are crazy eyes that just so happen to be blue, then you might have an issue, but there is not a shred of scientific evidence to suggest a direct correlation between eye color and temperament.

There is no king in their country and there is no queen and there are no princes vying for power, inventing corruption. Just as with us many children are born and some will live and some will die and the country will continue. And there will always be room for the weak, the violets and the blood root. When it is cold they will be given blankets of leaves. When it is hot they will be given shade. And not out of guilt, neither.

Just as with us many children are born and some will live and some will die and the country will continue. And there will always be room for the weak, the violets and the blood root. When it is cold they will be given blankets of leaves. When it is hot they will be given shade. And not out of guilt, neither for a year-end deduction but maybe for the cheer of their colors, their small flower faces.

Some will perish to become houses or barns, fences and bridges. Others will endure past the counting of years. And none will ever speak a single word of complaint, as though language, after all, did not work well enough, was only an early stage. Neither do they ever have any questions to the gods--- which one is the real one, and what is the plan. As though they have been told everything already, and are content. Mary Oliver had been writing poetry more than 40 years before I ever read “The Journey” and “Wild Geese,” and she became one of my favorite poets.

Her work drops me down into a meditative realm, and I feel the homey and raw aspects of this natural world that are feeding my body and senses at all times. They don’t strive to answer questions, but turn things over like seasons in the hand.

Somehow Mary Oliver’s poetry makes me feel that her attentiveness to this world is because she was a stone, or a wren, or a cloud before she came here; and when she leaves she will become a hummingbird, or a violet, or a bluebird next time around. Saying this wasn't my favorite of Mary Oliver's collections is like saying I preferred Tuesday's sunset to Thursday's.

Saying this wasn't my favorite of Mary Oliver's collections is like saying I preferred Tuesday's sunset to Thursday's. “-from A Little Ado About This and That I don't think I realized that Mary Oliver had come out with another volume of poetry, but she's one of my favorites, and when I saw it at the public library I snagged it right away.

“-from A Little Ado About This and That I don't think I realized that Mary Oliver had come out with another volume of poetry, but she's one of my favorites, and when I saw it at the public library I snagged it right away. Some of these poems give an insight to a new home, and a new love, even now so late in life.

I would recommend her outlook to anyone needing a bit of a boost, anyone who feels lonely, or anyone who has had to forge their own path. “. In the song sparrow's nest the nestlings, those who would sing eventually, must listen carefully to the father bird as he sing sand make their own song in imitation of his. I don't know if any other bird does this (in nature's way has to do this).

Mary Oliver had a gift for quietly cutting to the heart of the matter. Her ability to speak of deep, universal truths in simple language can leave one breathless.

From the poem A Little Ado About This And That included in this volume:”I would like people to remember of me, how inexhaustible was her mindfulness.” Her outlook in this slim, attractive book remains positive, never cloying, and is tinged with welcome humor and even sadness as she approaches death -- though as fitting with her persona, she turns that into affirmation as well.

Want and nothing will be disturbed; you can drip with despair all afternoon and still, on a green branch, its wings just lightly touched By the passing foil of the water, the thrush, puffing out its spotted breast, will sing of the perfect, stone-hard beauty of everything.

The hummingbird, the fox, the raven, the sparrow hawk, the otter, the dragonfly, the water lily! It must be a great disappointment to God if we are not dazzled at least ten times a day.

It must be a great disappointment to God if we are not dazzled at least ten times a day. The natural world offers its splendor while the poet imagines the extinction of the lawnmower.

I fear poetry is all that can reach me presently though I’m concerned about even that possibility given my reception of this. When I heard that Mary Oliver’s new poetry collection ‘ Bluenoses has come out, I couldn’t wait to get it and read it.

Mary Oliver doesn’t bother with meter and rhyme and rhythm and alliteration and the iamb and the dactyl and the trochee. She just writes one beautiful poem after another in free verse which is accessible to the general reader and touches our hearts with beautiful images and thoughts and in the process makes it look so deceptively simple, like the best poets do.

No matter what the world claims, its wisdom always growing, so it’s said, some things don’t alter with time :the first kiss is a good example, and the flighty sweetness of rhyme. No matter what the world preaches spring unfolds in its appointed time, the violets open and the roses, snow in its hour builds its shining curves, there’s the laughter of children at play, and the wholesome sweetness of rhyme.

When I walk on the beach I gather a few white ones, dark ones, the multiple colors, Don’t worry, I say, I’ll bring you back, and I do. Most long time fans of Oliver (but most will call her Mary, since she does seem to be speaking directly to you, and you get a sense from her, more than most poets, that you know her) will not be dissuaded.

And many of her familiar themes are here, which can be basically summed up: Pay attention, and especially so to nature, because if you do, you will see she is speaking to you. For example, stones she picks up and puts with water in a most long time fans of Oliver (but most will call her Mary, since she does seem to be speaking directly to you, and you get a sense from her, more than most poets, that you know her) will not be dissuaded.

For example, stones she picks up and puts with water in a jar, as so many of us have done or still do, they speak to her, to us, of places and times.

But these poems are not among her best work, as attractively packaged as they are, with the painting of the blue horses on the cover. The poems are generally short, and in this way inviting, but they are more discursive and reflective than lyrical.

She wrestles with “the poetic” in these poems, both explicitly (she talks of this subject) and implicitly (in that she consciously works to make her language plain and every day, with a direct address to her readers) and what distances some people from poetry through language. And that is good, she reaches out to us, she is against affectations of the academic poets, and yet her language is often elegant and powerful in places. Just less so than in some of her earlier work.

One of the many reasons I love Oliver is that she reminds me of that time and prods me to open up my eyes again to the surrounding world to linger, wonder, and dream. Bluenoses (2014) is a slim collection of poems about the natural world and the wonder of being alive.

Like in Mary Oliver's earlier collections, the syntax is simple and the meaning seems deceptively clear. In her poems, the close observation of the natural world is driven by her drive to probe for spiritual and philosophical answers and her desire to become increasingly conscious of the world around her: “I would like people to remember of me, / how inexhaustible was her mindfulness.” Bluenoses (2014) is a slim collection of poems about the natural world and the wonder of being alive.

She summarizes her poetics early on in this book: “In a poem/ people want/ something fancy/ but even more/ they want/ something inexplicable/ made plain, /easy to swallow.” In this collection there is beauty and joy to be found, and new exhilarating ways to look at life and all that surrounds us.

Absolutely amazing poetry book that came exactly when I needed it. So much about spirit, I plan to write more on it. As deep as I ever went into the forest came upon an old stone bench, very, very old, and around it a clearing, and beyond that trees taller and older than I had ever seen.

Such silence! It really wasn’t so far from a town, but it seemed all the clocks in the world had stopped counting. So it was hard to suppose the usual rules applied. I sat on the bench, waiting for something. An angel, perhaps. Or dancers with the legs of goats.

The poems in Bluenoses are short, sweet and have a Zen like feel of mindfulness. As a reader I was able to feel and experience her connection with nature, the beauty, and peace that surrounds her.

I shared the book with my wife, and she loved it as much as I did, now we both are looking forward to reading more of Mary Oliver's work. All horses are beautiful, but this gallery of unique stallions and mares take majestic to a whole new level.

With an unbelievably shiny coat that appears to be metallic in the sun, the Akhil Take is the national emblem of the country of Turkmenistan. As it turns out, the type horse photographed above has been famous since this picture of him as a foal surfaced online.

All I know is that his mane and tail PERFECTLY compliment his super shiny coat. Easily recognized for their leg feathering and common black and white or “piebald”coat color, the Blue Roan version of the beautiful Gypsy horse is considered most rare.

Lush locks and an extraordinarily bold coat make this horse a regular show-stopper, but perhaps unique are the star-shaped dapples on his front end. While not as rare as some other horses on this list, this cello is a blonde beauty.
