Yes, Ace is truely Bay. Dark bay, but with red highlights.
And where he is shedding out along his back, he has a wide black dorsal mark.
Ace is absolutely covered in whorls. He has them on both cheeks (just like Mama) which the Bedouins say predict debt and ruin. Besides that, he has a perfect wheatear on his neck. That one foretells misfortune. But in the meantime, it is really very pretty. He has the finest hair coat I've ever seen. He gets that from both his sire and dam.
