Do you have any idea what color his parents were? The mane makes me think there is something hidden in his genetics, is it possible he's smoky black? In one pic he almost looks silver dapple, but in another he looks black. Hmmm, I'm not sure! I am not good with tobiano/overo,etc... Though the shot of his belly is making me think more and more he might be chocolate......He is very cute though, and yes in my experience SSHs are sweethearts(though they all have the potential to be turds!), I have to say that most gaited breeds I've worked with tend to be sweethearts. I love his facial markings!
Thanks for the reply JacksMama, I can see now I should've just left the part out of him being my son's, as this is apparently very distracting to readers
There will be no green beans leading green beans, or blinds leading blinds :) I probably will edit the post, so MAYBE I can get some opinions on what I actually posted for. I do appreciate everyone's concerns, and couldn't agree more!! :)))
I'm thinking silver something as well.... I also posted in the Color category, and getting some good opinions there as well. I most likely will get him DNA tested, just wondering people's opinions while I wait :))
He is very trusting, and when we picked him up from his previous owner, his mom was very trusting as well. As for the colors, our yearling looks EXACTLY like his mom. That weird brownish color with the flaxen type mane.
No idea the sire... waiting on photos as well :)
