It has been a while since I've been on here and I have a question. Below are some pictures of a colt who belongs to a friend of mine. We have a friendly debate going on as to whether he is a Blue Roan or Brown Roan. She says he is going to go blue once he's finished shedding out. I say he's a Brown, similar in colour to my mare Lilly. I told her, for fun, we'll see what the HF community thinks on this one. "Titan's" sire is a blue roan and his dam is a strawberry roan, but I don't know anything further about their colour genetics, other than the dam's dam was a brown.
I understand that he is just over 3 months old, so his colour is bound to change. I also get that the pictures also aren't the greatest because he was in no mood to stand for pictures when we saw him last night. I've included pictures of when he was 1 day old to yesterday evening. He's shedded out around his eyes and nose and he looks to have the softer points of a brown. My friend at some point wants to have him genetically tested for his colour, but she says it's more fun to argue with me right now. Because he likely will change colour, this is really just for fun to see what other opinions are out there.
