Odd colored yearling QH

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.

She buckskin. In all honesty I would tell your friend to hold off buying until you know her HYPP status... At least that is what I would do.

So will her legs get darker as she ages?

Well, the stallion is 11 and has never had symptoms. And this woman has sold horses all over North America for several years and never had a complaint and this one sires most of them. We'll try to find out more about the mare but the odds seem like 1 in a million.

Odds of the mare being Impressive bred is 50/50. Either is or isn't. Lol has the site been tested for HYPP? If not I'd get your mare tested. Either way she should get tested since the dam is unknown.

I want to say she's a sooty palomino but I'm not sure if sooty can cause dark legs like that. Do you have any pictures of her in the sunlight or pictures of her back? It almost looks like I can see zebra striping on the sire but not too sure.

NDAppy, what is causing the mane to be so light if she is actually a buckskin?

Yes she should get darker. And I was going to say yes on testing, but I found the stud's sire is N/N. I personally would still test, since the dam was grade and I would want to go in knowing full well if there was HYPP or not.

Buckskin with lots of frosting. Maybe a little sooty at work too?

And im confused by the "purebred grade quarter horse" if dam isnt registered, this filly is Grade. No exceptions. Or call her half QH. Purebred Grade just contradicts itself. Lol.

She's cute. Looks like she may have her sires hindend which im not fond on. But she has a lovely face!

Right but if the sire happens to be N/H (which is the only possibility since the Impressive line is N/H and it's the only line in his pedigree), does it even matter if the mare was Impressive bred or not? Couldn't the filly be N/H regardless even with an N/N mare?

This stud has been used to breed most of the purebred QH foals on her ranch, all without symptoms.

No, this is a very low key operation. She's spending about $400 on this filly. I noticed she was breeding a few frame studs to and I don't think she knows the danger of that either. Pretty positive she wouldn't have a clue who Impressive even was.

Grade does not mean crossbred. It means unregistered. I have a purebred Grade Arabian as well. Being Grade does not negate the fact that she's still a purebred Arab. Why on earth would you call her Half QH when she's not? "What was her dam"? "Uhhhh....not a QH?"

MM - there is only one cross to Impressive on the sire, and that is the sire's sire. I found the sire's sire was supposedly tested as N/N so HYPP from him wouldn't be a worry, but from the dam it would be.

As for how light? Some just are that way. They can be super light, but will normally have tell tale signs of what they are underneath.
