Ok, the second filly may be black. From my phone, the lighter areas on her face appeared very gold. On my laptop now, they are very mousy gray.

That's the stud, he's not all muscled up and huge right now, the mares ran him down a bit, but he's an awesome horse. Breeding him for personal horses but will sell the ones that don't make the cut as rodeo horses, they will go on to be either horses for our lesson program, but there is interest on each foal so we may sell a few.

Is it still possible that second newest filly could be blue roan?

Yes, depending on the sire's zygosity for Agouti. If he's hetero, then there is a 50% chance of him passing it on. So, she could be a brown roan like him....or a blue roan. However, if he's homozygous for agouti, then she would be a brown roan.


And, of course, since momma carries cream there is also the possibility that she's a smoky black, but that would have to be tested for as you can't tell by looking.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

So far there's a black colt with white star out of a chestnut mare with white star, a bay dun roan colt with white star out of a grulla mare with white socks and big white blaze, a brown based buckskin filly with no markings out of a brown based buckskin heavily marked paint mare, then these two babies.

The Palomino mare has 4 white stockings and big blaze and the newest filly just has a small white stripe. Mr. Stud seems to be throwing minimally marked babies. Makes sense seeing as he has no white anywhere.

If the same stallion is daddy of all of the foals then you can tell he is heterozygous for agouti since one of the foals is black.

On the second newest ones I think brown roan... Maybe black, and the youngest one black with or without roan (can't tell yet).

I'll get more photos of the second newest one, she is shedding out and I can't see anything but black with roan she is so blue.

Oh and Poseidon, the newest filly in person does have a tan/buff look to her flanks and in areas!
