Chocolate or Vanilla?

I have fun looking at fancy horses and talking over my layman's analysis with a friend of mine who is a breeder. We have differing opinions on these two very lovely mares from the Oldenburg shows earlier this year. One mare was champion, one was reserve. Can you guess which won? Drool, drool, drool.

Chestnut Mare crushes the stereotype! Bella Rose

What a wonderful mare -- only ten-years-old! Definitely this one will have a second career as a broodmare. I'm sorry that they were not able to complete WEG this year...

Chauffeur -- Riley's younger brother!

It's my understanding that you can only call a horse a half-brother to another horse if they share the same dam, not the same sire. This baby shares the same dam as Riley, and by golly they sure look similar as babies!
