So my friend Ashley is buying this filly and we're having difficulty pegging the coloring that's going on here. She's a yearling, so you figured it would have sorted the foal color mash up already? The sire is a golden palomino, I'll post a pic. The owner says the mare is bay but no photos of her and she's been sold so I couldn't look at her.
She looks palomino but she has jet black hair all through her mane and tail. And although her legs look dark, it's only a dark brown and it's all over the place - some people were saying frosted buckskin and I'm not sure I see it but the tips of her ears were also darker I think? I swear I almost thought palomino dun briefly, but no leg barring and no dorsel stripe whatsoever. I also thought maybe counter shading or sooty but doesn't it work from the top down, not the bottom up? She has absolutely no dorsel stripe or dark shading on her back whatsoever.
Let me have it girls!
Oh we could also use some name suggestions! She's a purebred grade Quarter Horse. Sire is registered, dam is Grade. Here is the sire:
Cheyennes Gold Bar Quarter Horse
Also just realized he's Impressive bred. What are the odds the mare is to? *sighs* Pretty sure we have no information on her.
