    What color is this?

    I have no idea what color my new mini boy is! Would love some insight.

    He has 4 white stockings, a white main and tail, a snip on his nose and a spot of white on his rump in front of his dock. He also has dapples.

    I am not a color person at all- so this boy has me stumped! Also taking name suggestions! He came with the name "Ed" and its just not doing it for me

    Black with Silver. Also appears to carry tobiano. Possibly frame as well.

    The dapples are from good health.

    I was just told in another thread that he is a dappled silver! Googled it and those horses do look like him!

    He's a silver dapple in the mini world. If you shaved him he would be gray with black dapples and look like a different horse.

    Black silver minimal tobiano, most likely splash as well with that snip.

    Black silver/silver dapple are the same thing. Different areas of the world will use either term.

    Genetically, he is black......And carries/expresses the silver gene.

    I see his and think Romeo... don't know why!

    Silver dapple is the most common wording. The color is technically black + silver, so if you said silver dapple or silver black, it would mean the same thing. He's also a tobiano, that's what is causing the socks and the spot on his butt. Nothing about him makes me think frame.

    This pony does not belong to the OP. He is the property of J3 ranch.
