But what about "sooty", Could she pass that down to the foal?

I was thinking about testing her! Hoping for chestnut/sorrel.

Her breed is unknown too, so I have no idea if it carries Sabino-1.

Thanks for the help!

Yes sooty can be passed on. It can be minimal or extreme and can vary from season to season as well.

I don't think she is a silver bay to be honest. I think she is a chestnut with seasonal sooty.

Some of the pictures, in fact most of them, are really bad for judging a horse's colour. They are great in terms of photography, but pics taken in the "golden hour" just before sunset tend to have a lot more red and yellow in them than the horse does normally.

I don't think she is silver because of several things. First, the colour of her coat is too "chestnut" in several of the pics, including your avatar. Silver bays tend to have a deeper reddish brown, rather than the reddish orange of a chestnut. Secondly, horses with silver usually have white eyelashes, which she does not. They also usually have some striping to the hooves, which again, she does not (it wouldn't be on a hoof with a white marking, but she has a leg without white that has no striping).

She looks flaxen chestnut to me. Some sooty. Does she have Morgan breeding do you know? I know of a lot of sooty morgans for some reason. Anyways.. I don't think she looks Silver Dapple Bay at all.

Since her legs are so pale, couldn't she just be a chesnut with pangare? I think that's how you spell it?

Ndappy; Thank you!

EquestrianCowgirl14; Thank you.

Chiilaa; Thank heavens. I was starting to worry that I had a silver bay/dapple etc.

Tapperjockey; I have no idea what breed she is. But I think she's too heavy to have morgan breeding?

Lilkitty90; I will Google that!
