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

Sire is bay roan(pic #1), mom is light palimino.

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.

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.
