Which Color of Foal Blanket?

I am having a hard time picking out a color for the baby. Yes, it should be born in April, but Indiana's weather has been unpredicatable so there wont be any surprises. :)

Pastel Pink



The blanket is on sstack.com and it's the same one shown.

Please vote! I want a filly, but Bentley's genes are showing mostly colts.

Well, my dad just bought 2 of the pink foal saver blankets from sstack as a gift to my mom. Although the pink looks light in color for their picture, it is actually a vibrant pink. And the blue is also very vibrant, another member posted a picture in their foaling thread of their chunky black lab modeling their brand new blue foal saver blanket from sstack.

Oh, and I vote blue because girls look good in both colors, but boys look slightly feminine in pink. But since my dad bought 2 of the pink and no blue ones, my sisters are already planning on making a sign that says "only real men wear pink" if a colt is born

I think either would work, but a boy with pink would probably be mistaken for a girl quite frequently. Most people don't know 'colt' means boy, anyway, so regardless of what my filly wears she is constantly called a boy. Might as well just assume everyone will call a fabulous little filly a colt anyway, so be a step ahead of the crowd and get the potential she a blue blankie. ;) That is my logic about it, anyway.
