He'll probably roan out. And he's adorable!

I was also going to say brown-- great minds think alike, LOL

I have a 7 year old brown TB mare who has very light, sparse rabicano roaning in her flanks and sides, as well as white on her tailhead-- but you don't really see the roaning until you get up close.

I doubt hers will ever progress enough to call her a blue roan or brown roan or bay roan. She is registered with the JC as a dark bay or brown, and the roaning is noted on her papers as "scattered white hairs throughout coat and root of tail" which I think was added when she was 2, as she was issued a corrected certificate as a 2 year old.

Does AQHA ever make notations like that, I wonder? I think the way the JC did her papers was pretty accurate.

Did you test him for grey?

Eastowest, you win : ) He is a dark seal brown rabicano. According to AQHA brown roans are "blue" and rabicanos are roans... so he is a "blue roan" by technicalities. He has a super thick MN winter coat right now so we don't know how much white he will have but he has the a long white stripe through his tail and scattered white hairs throughout his coat. He isn't grey, both parents have dark heads and legs - his sire is a true roan and mama is a rabicano. I will try to get a good picture when it's less muddy.

Our Magic color changing pony

OK here are some pics over time. My profile pic shows him on day 1... within a few weeks he was so light he looked dun... then he shed out to almost black and now he has areas that are bleached back to a dark brown. He does have a scattering of white hairs and his lower lip has turned almost solid white (like an old lab lol) but he was tested and isn't grey. He has the "coon tail" of a rubicano as well. We call him our amazing color changing pony.

He is so cute!

Why does AQHA consider rabicano to be roan? They're completely different genes :\ So are gray and roan, so I didn't quite understand those comments. Do you know which parent he inherited the rabicano from?
He's quite cute! I love trying to guess what colour the babies are going to turn out to be, it's like a game.

I have a brand new 2 day old colt and I would like to know what color he is. I will try to post a pic of him. Okay here's a video of him and his mom

He almost looks kinda silver/grey. I know it will change. I was told it would be a buckskin. He does have a dorsel stripe (black). He is a cutie, isn't he! We just love him! :)
