Sooty mini?

I never know Miniature horses came in this many colors! I only expected a relatively a few colors and patterns in the breed, but I was wrong! Tobaino, overo, splash, perlino, palomino, roans, and appaloosas.

Minis come in all the same colors as regular sized horses

As well as a few of those head scratching weird colors that are the result of so many mixed up genes! XD

Between minis and ponies..I swear. They will always keep you on your toes for color guessing.

Minis are awesome. Not only do they have pretty much every colour, they also tend to have much stronger expression of most colours too. And in answer, the mini you posted is brown, not sooty bay

How?




You can't mistake this counter-shading for something else. These are registered AMHA bloodline minis. I have seen a gene tested pure blood bay arab gelding with coloring very similar to this, and he was sooty.

Look at how pale his inner flank is. Can't be anything else. Plus the heavy "sooty" along the neck also screams brown to me. I am yet to see a bay with that much "sooty" that isn't actually brown.

According to horsetesting.com

Brown (and I'm not referring to Seal Brown) is a somewhat ambiguous term used to identify a number of horse coat colors but most often refers to a dark variation of Bay. We eventually will try to make changes to the calculator that will incorporate these variations. But for now, selecting Bay for the color brown will give you the most accurate calculations. However, colors such as liver chestnut or even smoky black are sometimes misidentified as brown. In which case Bay would obviously not be the correct selection.

*snort* Brown IS a color and has a test available for it. Yes you would use bay on the calculator as it is an agouti gene just like bay.
