    Color guesses?

    Sorry I don't have a photobucket but you can click on my horses and check out my little Rev. Dad is a blue roan, mom is a bay roan. I'm leaning more towards bay roan....but then sometimes she has me second guessing...She has SO much white coming through right now, too, much more then either parents. I think she'll be pretty flashy when she's all shed out.

    Definitely a bay but I don't see much roaning in those pictures. Are those current? Do you have some new ones that you could post? She is a good looking little girl and ought to grow up big and stout.

    Ok, I think I may have figured out how to post with a picture, lol. You can see the white/gray splotches coming through by her ear, on her chest, neck, etc....This pic was taken last week, she's 2 months old.

    Wow, she is certainly a cutie. From what I hear, those Hancock horses can be a bit of a handful LOL. I would say that she is definitely going to be a beautiful bay roan like her momma. Probably more roan like you thought.

    Thanks smrobs, I agree about her cuteness! She has a slight parrot mouth, which is why the breeder wasn't going to keep her in their herd, but she will make a great riding horse. I can deal with her being a little bit spicy as long as she has that versatility and power. ;)

    Foal
    I want to say bay roan too, but it's so hard to tell a foal's true color untill it sheds of that baby coat. I own a buckskin gelding. When this he was born he was lighter colored and had zebra stripping around his legs. When my gelding shed his baby fur, he lost the zebra stripes and turned a deep, rich, gold color, almost bronze. Here are some recent photos of him. Hansome isn't he?

    Foal
    I'm just happy that he turned out buckskin. Lights is a breedingstock paint. His mother, whom I own is a black breedingstock and his sire was a palomino breedingstock. I knew I was going to get buckskin because my mare has the dominent black gene. The funny thing is, when everyone saw what I had they all tried bred their mares to that stud becuse they wante buckskins too, but no one else could get one, not even the owner of the stallion and do you think lightning can't stike twice in the same place? Think again!. I ended up breeding my mare back to the same stallion and got another buckskin. The pics below are my gelding's full sister. In an Ironic twist, their sire was later gelded. I have his only two buckskin foals.

    Foal
    Bay definitely. Or maybe a little darker, because mine had a really light, almost white coat then shed out to be a darker blue roan. Just a guess though.
