Question How do I determine the colors of my pony's sire and dam?

Hello there, I have always wondered what my little mare's dam's color is.

Her color is a like a liver chestnut. Dark mane with mostly white, black, light brown, and dark brown hairs - from a distance it looks black, but it really isn't. She is dullish chestnut, not fully red colored, kind of bronzy and shiny.

Her sire's color is a palomino and that is a all that I know.

What can I do to determine what color her dam was?

Does anybody have a guess?

Thanks! :)

Mom was probably a chestnut/sorrel...possibly a bay

Yes, I agree. I think she may have been like a cherry bay color. I have given this a lot of thought! :)

Well you can rule out a double dilute. So not cremello, perlino or smoky cream. Other than that, Mumma could have been any colour. Bay, black, brown, chestnut, any sort of single cream dilute, any dun, any roan, pretty much anything lol.

A picture would really be the only way for anyone to guess.

A picture of my horse? Or her dam? Because I have never seen her dam before.

The dam. Without any information about her or a picture, it is impossible for us to help with determining her color. The only thing we can tell based on your mare's color is what Chiilaa already said: she wasn't a double cream.

The only other thing we know is the dam had one red gene... but that really doesn't mean anything either as she could still be any color under the sun except a double dilute.
