More foal color ?'s and update on previous foals!

Okay y'all were right about the colors on the last three foals!

He turned out black:

The silver looking filly turned out that brown based buckskin

And my favorite colt of course turned bay dun:

BUT.... he is turning a beautiful bay dun roan!!

Now onto the newest ones.. what color do you think these fillies will be.

She got rain rot and after treatment her hair on her rump grew back blue roan looking? But also she is shedding on her legs, face and chest..same blue roan color. Dam is a brown based buckskin and sire is a brown roan Blue Valentine bred quarter horse who is throwing black bases on all foals. Here this little girl is:

And this is the newest baby girl. Sire is the same Blue Valentine stud who is brown (or sometimes looks bay) roan in color and dam is a Palomino:

So what do y'all color experts think??

Oh and halters are only on for handling.

Right now I'd say both foals are black and as for roan we shall see once they shed their baby coats. Could have cream since the dams do but since they are black that's something your going to have to test for.

^^Agreed. I do believe that the first is going to be a roan though. At first glance I thought she was graying out but since that's not a possibility.....roan.

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:

Do you have pictures of the blue roan stud and/or his name?

First one looks blue roan, or maybe a very dark brown but we would have to wait until her foal coat is done.

Second makes me think smoky brown (brown based buckskin). The gold tone around her nose and eyes is why I think that.

I've posted pictures of him before and the consensus was he is a brown roan but when he darkens in the winter he looks blue, and spring he looks bay. I'll have to pull out his papers, he's blue Valentine and Hancock bred can't remember his exact name right off hand. He's not standing to the public this year. We want to see if his foals will be anything

I'm hoping the newest one roans out too. We've got two more left. The next one due any time now I'm most excited about, it'll be out of a jam up little red dun all around mare. She's so athletic. The second will be out of a very light Palomino mare. All the foals have homes before they even hit the ground to local owners who know the stud if we decide not to keep them. As of now the only one that probably won't be kept here is the brown based buckskin filly. These should be nice performance horses especially the dun roan and the one due any day from the red dun mare. I hope that the second newest filly will be blue roan, not breeding for color but would love to have one!
