If you have been following Equine Tapestry for a long time, you probably recognize the image above as the old site. It went through a few redesigns before some aspects of the site became incompatible with newer versions of WordPress. That, along with poor support from my hosting company, were the big reasons for moving to the current site. My intention was to leave the archives up for as long as the site remained functional. If you have tried to access old posts recently, you may have noticed that ended recently. I do have the materials archived and they will eventually return, but for the moment they are down.
When I relaunched the site here, I hoped to talk about the things I spend my time researching. As tempting as that is, I quickly came to believe that there were things I could do that would be more helpful. I have also picked up a few new skills along the way that made tackling those things more feasible. While it has seemed quiet here on the blog, things have been in the works behind the scenes.
In the meantime, I am going to be pulling a conversation that I started just as the old blog went quiet. At the time, I was talking about the limitations of the “Base + modifier” framework of understanding horse color. I am going to repost those and pick up where I left off.
That will set things up for the new project, which should follow shortly afterwards. We might hit a few bumps along the way, since I will be doing something quite different, but I think it will be worth the effort.
