    what colour is she?

    This has been annoying me for ages, as I don't know what colour my friends horse is and she doesn't know either lol
    Her sire is a dark bay and so is her grand sire and her dam is a leopard spot appaloosa

    Her as a yearling

    As a foal

    She's now turning four and her colour hasn't changed much expect for gaining a few wee white flecks.

    See I thought maybe a seal brown but i'm really terrible with coat colors unless they're obvious

    Hmm, I don't really see the points that would make me say bay. Is mom a black and white leopard spot? Does she get darker when she's not in the sun? The smoky black stud I work with is a very similar color, more steely gray though. Any chance of a cream in there somewhere?

    Yup mams black and white leopard spot, only time she gets darker is when she gets her winter fuzzies but its not really darker by much. As for the cream I have no idea.

    My guess is that she's brown.

    My foal is almost the exact same color and it's been driving me nuts also. Except that he has darker points. But he's not truly a bay, but he doesn't really look like a chestnut either. I should get some recent photos on here for you guys to see!

    I'm no colour expert but isnt that like grulla?

    It's a bit dark for grulla. My first instinct is a smokey black for some reason. Something about the chocolate quality to the colour.

    I'd need some better pics but he looks liver chestnut to me.

    He's not bay, he has no black points.
    He's not brown, browns are almost completely black with almost mealy light areas in the flank and muzzle
    He's not grullo/dun, I don't see any dorsel stripe or zebra stripes

    Smokey black could be a possibility, but it can be almost impossible to differentiate from a shade of dark chestnut when it displays so light. More info on the parents would be needed.

    Agreed with liver chestnut. She's kind of light, but judging by the tips of her mane she is slightly sun bleached. Liver chestnut is a gorgeous color when darkened out. One of my favorite.
