Fairly new to horses....definitely new to genetics and coloring.
We have a 3 month old filly at the barn. (Born on July 27)
Her dam's owner did not know she was pregnant when she bought her so we have no idea who the sire is.
The dam is a black and white standardbred. Pinto.
The little filly was born a solid chestnut with two white stockings on the back legs. (Her name is Demi Silk Stockings)
I have been playing with her and helping with the desensitization and have just noticed that she is developing a fairly large patch of white hairs on her back and side. The hairs are growing more prominent each day.
Does that mean she is going to be like her dam...a pinto? I had no idea that spots of color could just appear after birth.
Forgive me for my silly newbie question!
