Here's our new colt, wonder what color we will end up with.

Sire is bay roan(pic #1), mom is light palimino.
OUr first baby, we are absolutely thrilled with him...still waiting on black hooves lol...he is a week old now. Pics are 1 & 2 days old, he gets lighter in the flanks every day.

I am inclined to think chestnut too. However, here comes my disclaimer lol. Roan can wait for a shed or even two sheds before it starts to show. So roan could be there too. And sometimes, palomino can be born looking very cherry red. So while I see this foal and think chestnut, I don't want to lock that answer in completely lol.

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.

He's definitely red based for sure. So either chestnut or palomino, with or without roan.

hey gives me a little hope for roan, seriously doubt I could get that lucky on palomino but great to hear it HAS happened.
