color questions about 2 minis we rescuedh

Hey everyone, we rescued 2 minis and just aren't sure to their colors (we come from a world of bay, black and chestnut). Any ideas? Photos are in an album in my profile.

Thanks in advance

I would need more pics to be certain of the boy's colour. However, the mare I am fairly certain is a Black Silver, also known as a Silver Dapple :)

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.

Thank you! I'm going to try and nab some more photos of oliver this afternoon and will post them up. From the research I've done I thought she may be a silver dapple, but like I said these colors are a new world to me! Lol

We have no idea who or what color of a horse the mare is bred to. when we rescued her the owner said she was accidently pasture bred and was probably due in February, so we're waiting and watching, who knows when and what we will get. Is there any chance she could throw color?

Pickles looks like a black silver.

Oliver looks to be a brown, possible a silver brown, but I would like to see more pictures. :-D

Said it on your thread in the mini section, but Pickles is silver black, and Oliver is silver brown, maybe silver bay.
