Well I'm relived. I wanted her to be a chestnut.

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).

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

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.

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!
