a test for the color experts

Here is a test for all our color experts. My friends are trying to figure out what is the correct color to list their new baby as. Miss Ivory as she has so been named has: pink skin, white hair with spots & blue eyes. The hair is so white that you can see her pink skin right through all the fuzz. Any guesses??? Attached are pics of her, her & the Jenny & one of the Jack. We've been trying to do research on the web, but so far, it's looking like her coloring is VERY rare.

According to what I can find, she doesn't qualify as a "white few spot" because they have dark skin. She also doesn't qualify as an "albino" because of the spots

I know there's been no record of albinism in horses, I'm not sure if its the same with donks. She's definitely not albino, though. She's like a few spot creme, if there is a cream gene in donks. That's what would be causing her blue eyes. She is definitely cute for sure. In horses, it would be similar to a perlino/cremello with minimal pinto markings. I believe haha.

Just kidding. I think it'd be in possible for her to have 2 creme genes. Ignore me :P She's so stinking cute though.

I would guess she is just a high white pinto of some kind.

Donkey genetics are harder than horses because there just isn't much information out there for us to gobble up. Clearly it is maximum expression of a white pattern, or possibly some of that recessive ivory color they talk about - I think this because you said blue eyes. I have no idea what paint/pinto white patterns are in donkeys, but Ivory causes blue eyes.

May possibly be dun as well since both parents appear to have it. Although you can't tell because of all the light coat where the patterning would be.

I also have no idea how the grey vs bay works in donkeys. So I will call your baby: Spotted Ivory with possible dun. Weird, but that is how I found donkeys do color naming.

Thanks everybody! CCH, I think your guess is about the best we've heard yet. This baby was slated to be mine ( we were counting on solid dun/grey) but her "unique" coloring puts her far out of my price range. She will be offered for sale after weaning.

Critter Sitter, your probably only an hour away from where Ivory is. You could come see her in person!

I WANT! So cute! So your in Nebraska somewhere eh? You may need to do nightly checks on her once weaning comes around. She may or may not disappear to a northern great plains state...
