cat I was trying to point out that the parents could have been registered wrong. My BAY arab was registered as a grey.

The black stallion was actualy a very dark smokey Bay but looked black so was registered as black since the breed registery does not accept buckskin or smokey as a colour. My smokey buckskin was registered as a chocolate Dun simply because of the registrys rules, Despite the fact that connemaras do not carry the dun gene. The connemara society (UK one) does not accept cremes or pallys dispite the fact that the pure bred lines do carry the creme modifier!

Completely off topic, but I love your name. I have read nearly all of the Brumby books

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Chiilaa - mine??

I've never read them... I used to be in love with this stud farm that had gorgeous ponies and their stable name was Wingana - i've kind of stolen it and used it ever since lol saw the ad in HorseDeals when I was a kid.

I think the registries are all moving to DNA testing because of color confusion. Many colts are born one color and begin to change with the first shedding of baby hair. But their color has already been noted on the registration. Apps are notorious for starting out as solids. Many start roaning out, a process that lasts it's lifetime.

Oh lol. Winganna is a character in one of the Brumby books written by Elyne Mitchell. You probably have heard of them - they started with The Silver Brumby.

Besides that, Faye, the registries that are using DNA in the US aren't using it for colour testing anyway. It's parentage testing that is all they want.
