    Foal
    New arrival

    Meet Stardust. This huge colt was born 24 hrs ago. I am a newbie when it come to horse genetics but the little guy's coloring was a complete surprise to me. The last pic shows dad on the left and mom on the right. We had a filly out of these same 2 a couple of yrs ago and it was the same color as mom. What would you guys call this color and what will it turn into growing up?
    Thanks y'all.

    That's just his foal coat. They're not the same as their actual coat color. Once he sheds that, you'll see his true color.

    I'd say he's probably going to be a bay, like his momma.

    I don't think he'll be bay... He looks nothing like my oldest gelding did as a foal, and he's a bay... but I guess you never know... lol.

    He's a cutie for sure, though!

    Foal
    My guess is that he will be either black or a dark bay. I love the name! I picked Stardust for my name when we were waiting for my colt to be born. My husband picked Snowkicker he came out marked like a Snowkicker so I lost. I'm glad there is a cute Stardust out there! He looks like he is doing well! I like his tiny star.

    I think you have a black foal there. Bay foals typically(not always!) have fawn colored legs that grow in black as they shed the foal coat. While his legs are a bit lighter, they're not quite right. Since black is dominant, and mom is technically black with agouti fading points to black, I'd say baby got a red from dad and a black from mom. Either way, ADORABLE baby!

    He looks like a black to me. What color was the sire? I guess I missed that somewhere...
