Second Chance by Narya Rated: PG-13 half-star [Reviews - 150]
Summary: When fifteen-year-old Anna loses her sister in a freak horseriding accident, she has no way of knowing that Izzy has been given another chance to live and love. However, the afterlife works in mysterious ways; soon Anna is plagued by dreams that link her to a young woman from an age long, long forgotten, and to a blue-eyed foal that she has a nagging feeling she should recognise...

A response to Dunedain Ranger of the North's "Animal Transformations" challenge. Rated PG-13 for character death, emotional content and some mild language.

Title: Chapter 3: A Difficult Evening Reviewer: Teal Signed
What I have read so far is good, there is simply something that I would like to correct.

Blue eyes does not make a true white. What differs true white and light greys is that light greys are born their base colour and as they grow older fade first to dapple grey then to white then to fleabitten grey because of either a heterozygous or homozygous greying gene (Gg or gG or GG) and they will have black skin. For example, if the horse's base colour is bay and it has a heterozygous grey from its sire and its bay is homozygous (EE AA Gg), it will be born bay with white 'goggles', fade to rose grey then to light grey then end up as a fleabitten grey with brown flecks.

True whites have pink skin and are born white. True white is caused by either a heterozygous dominant white gene (Ww or wW) and will have hazel or blue eyes or homozygous sabino (Sb1Sb1) - these usually have dark eyes - or a few spot leopard in homozygous from (LpLp PATN1PATN1) with no spots - these will often have wall eyes.
