So the only way to tell a true smokey black is with a blood test?

Yup. Unless it is from a tested sire and dam that could only possibly produce smoky black

Or if you happened to breed to a buckskin or palomino and ended up with a double dilute.

Or that, yes lol

That would be quite the surprise.

Ok, so here is the baby. What is it?!?!? I wasn't expecting a dorsal strip and bright blue eyes. Pink skin without the freckling... what do you think? One white sock up the ankle and no facial markings at all. (surprising since both mom and dad have them).

Looks to me like a Classic champagne - champagne with black base. Very cute foal. Here is a site I found that should give you more info - Foal Colors

Great site but the Classic Champagne is a paint on that site, so its not helping... What do you think of the dorsal strip? Will it stay? What about the creme modifier, is that there too do you think?

According to the site the pink skin will freckle and her eyes will darken? Too bad, I am loving the bright blue!

A lot of foals will get the dorsal stripe and have it fade away as they get older.

A true dorsal is caused by dun and unless the sire or dam is carrying dun to pass on, a foal cannot be dun. Lots of foal coats do an awesome job mimicking dun.
