What color is the sire? Is he himself colored?

the sire is a resistered brown. He does have one of those weird white markings though...let me see if I can get some pictures up of him.

here we go. Right over his eyebrow xD


heres a full body shot of him...sorta xD pardon how wet he is, he'd just had a bath/leg treatment (he pulled a tendon last month). He's old, fat, and still has winter fluff- but under all of that is a gorgeous stallion. He competed actively in Halter and Driving before retiring ^^

I think it might just be a crap shoot on whether the foal will be colored or not. Part of it depends on the parent's zygosity for color but the other part is just luck.

As for the white on her spine, my first thought was scars from an old injury as well but since you said they were present at birth, I bet they are just how she is exhibiting her pinto pattern. Their placement and uniformity does strike me as very odd, but some pintos do have very strange coloring .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I thought the exact same thing.

As the OP has said that they were there at birth, it is just unusual placement for her markings. As smrobs said, it wouldn't be the first time a pinto has had weird markings.

If you could, Endiku, could you tell us what colour the skin is under the white spots? I know she is a fuzzball, so it is probably hard lol.

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.

well it took a bit of work but I got to the skin on three out of the four (or five if you count the leg) spots xD the skin was pinkish. That generally means that the hair is white because of pigment, and not injury- right? The leg spot has skin thats more of a greyish shade though.

I'm not going to lie. I would LOVE a chestnut paint, although the chances of that are slim xD any color will be great though. I'm sure that either way, the foal will be lovely.

My TB has these exact markings in the same place, they're pressure marks from an ill fitting saddle!

Maybe she was injured while still in her momma?

Well I can guarentee you that the white marks are not from an ill fitting saddle in her case- as she's never even worn a sweat sheet or blanket before, much less carried a saddle xD

Its possible that she was injured while unborn I guess....but we'll never know on that one xD

If the skin is pink, then the white was meant to be there
