My new filly

So, I have bought this QH filly and am anxiously awaiting when she can come home. Is she a bay? Her dam is bay and her sire is called blue roan, but from my research I think he is a bay roan.

I would say he is a bay.

Her sire is actually a brown roan. She appears bay right now but it might be possible she's brown. And she might roan out a little as she loses her foal coat but time will tell.

What a hideous little shrimp. You can just give her to me so you don't have to look at her every day. LOL. She is beautiful. If she gets her sires mane she is going to be a traffic stopper.

I agree with Bridger. Sire is definitely a brown roan so baby might be a brown as well. Whatever color she turns out, she's certainly gorgeous.

I'm no help with the color discussions unless it's the very basics, but holy moly, her sire is gorgeous! The baby is adorable too!

The sire is brown based agouti (At) roan. And the gorgeous foal is either bay or brown based (leaning toward brown) and could also be roan but time will tell, we'll have to wait till that baby coat sheds.

Well right now she is a bay but she may not stay that way. If you look up the picture threads of our colt he changed to a completely different colour within 30 days of me taking photos.

I'm no help with the colouring of foals, but agree the sire is in fact a brown roan. Love the foal!

My bay roan was easy to tell since he was born because he's had a partial white bum since then. Now it's all white. But your foal could shed out roan as well.
