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!
