This is the statement that really struck me:

"For example, chestnut horses are described as not so full of spirits, which may be a big advantage for their taming," Ludwig explained. "Dilutions and spotting patterns are linked to gene defects, or a less effective mode of operation of receptors, which possibly causes more tame behavior."

Perhaps there is some truth to the belief that certain colors correlate with certain personality traits.


That's really cool. Cool
