    Brown is a variation of bay and can be at times, very hard to tell from black. As for the foal's color, I would like to see pics of him in daylight out of the barn. How old is he now?

    How do I know? Lots and lots of research and learning

    The foal is just a couple days old. I'll get a pic outside as soon as the owner turns them out. He hasn't yet and since it's not my horse I'm not going to lol. Plus this mare is hateful! Here is a pic of it with the mare:

    I really hope I don't get a sorrell. Sorry if that sounds mean or snobby, but I am so burned out on it!

    It looks like the stud must carry cream.

    I "think" the foal out of the chestnut mare will end up being palomino, though he does look an odd shade. I would also love to see photos in natural light. Do you know what color the foal's eyes are?

    You have many color possibilities if the sire is smokey black and your mare is buckskin.

    And your chance of a chestut is VERY SMALL (like 2%), so it would be unlikely that is what you will get.

    Ok, I just tried the color calculator, but I have no idea if she carries the red gene, is homozygous for agouti, etc. Same for the stallion. But based on what I did know the highest probability came back as buckskin tobiano, just like her

    I couldn't really tell on the foal's eyes. They are dark I think, and pink skin around them.

    Hmmm. Wondering if the foal isn't Champagne. Hmmm

    A friend of mine thought champagne as well! She said to see if it has freckles on the nose.

    I just can't wait to see what my mare pops out. This is very interesting with all these color possibilities!!

    So, after doing some googling....I'm wondering if the foal posted above is a Perlino?? Based on my color calcs for my mare and the stallion (assuming he's smoky black)

    He can't be cremello, perlino or smokey cream as his dam does not carry cream and those are all double dilutes.
