Filly's final color? buckskin?

We had a filly born on April 13th and I was thrilled to see it looking like a buckskin. But now I have had people tell me they don't believe she will remain buckskin due to how dark she is around her eyes. The dam was a bay and the sure a palomino. Anyone with experience think they know what color she is?

The first photo of her was taken about a week ago and the other photo was of her a few weeks old. PS that is a piece of hay in the picture, not a stick

Yep, I'd definitely say she's a buckskin. A very adorable one at that .

A foal's first shed is generally their darkest, and it's not uncommon for buckskins to shed out really dark when they first shed in the spring. Both of mine shed out dark before evening out to a beautiful golden color.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

That's wonderful that you plan to keep updating. You'll find that we are a very picture happy forum. We all seem to love taking pictures of our own to share and ogling over the pictures of others .

Thanks, the mother is Virginia highlander. The sire is a quarter horse. I hope to keep her and have a nice riding horse one day for my horse crazy daughter. I believe we ended up with a very nice little filly :)
