My girl is unrecognizable from when she was a baby(she's an Appaloosa). She's four now and is very colorful, you'd never believe she was born solid brown. And I mean brown, not bay or chestnut, dark chocolate brown. :)

Don't forget also that many foals and horses bleach out in the summer months. That can be a factor too.

You know, hank is the same way! He was RED chestnut but then all the sudden he turned on us to chocolate with half flaxen mane and tall and his sire line is pretty much all palominos and his dam side is pretty much all chestnuts and palomino

Here are some pictures

HANK is on the right!
