Not-so-White Horses

White Horse of the Camargue,  May 2015

If you want to see the white horses looking white, you need to visit very early in the day.  I did wonder if they rolled so exuberantly deliberately to annoy the tourists!

Hex colour reference:  #9f8170

A colourful note:  The post-rolling horse looks a beautiful tone of orange just after dawn, but the earth seems a good match for Crayola’s beaver shade, a new tone of brown that joined their crayons in 1998.  This colour also went by another couple of animal-based names temporarily: it was named bear hug in the children’s boxes in 2008-9; and Alaska Kodiak Bear Brown in the State Crayon Collection in 2004-6.
