Our new filly, Mercedes!

So for those of you who so my thread last year:
Trio of Awesome babies?
The filly arrived on 4/8/13! Here are a few pics. So far no appaloosa coloring. But she is shedding out and is kinda looking like she will have a snow cap. So.... everyone... meet Merdedes! These pictures were taken today... a little over 3 months old :)

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

What a bum on that gal! WOW. On the color though, I wouldn't think she'd shed out with a snowcap if she wasn't born with a little something. Maybe she'll varnish out, and with Apps I guess you never know what's hiding.

She's adorable. She won't get a snowcap, they have to be born with one to be considered a true snowcap. She may varnish, though. :)

Eta: a snowcap is a homozygous Appaloosa pattern, so seeing that her dam is not an app she cannot be a snowcap.

well as she sheds she is only showing white on her rump. And yea... I was fixing to bring them in the barn. She is in between halter sizes right now. But she is plenty friendly that we don't have to leave a halter on her even if it fit properly.

That is very common with varnish, it goes from back to front. She genetically cannot be a snowcap, her dam does not have Appaloosa characteristics, so therefore she cannot pass them to her foals. I am sure your filly will color out, fairly quickly it sounds like.

Cowgirl -she's gorgeous - ...but please NEVER EVER leave a halter on a foal - far too easy for them to get hooked up in it (Especially one as loose as the one you have on her in these pics!

Thanks guys. She is going to be a really nice horse. My sister did well I think. And thanks for the concerns... but as I stated before... her halter is only on when we are bringing her in and out. So no worries on her getting it hung :)
