Question What color?..

I saw this on facebook for a Welsh Pony breeder. Wow. What do y'all think of the coloring? Is he bay? Or bay with like sabino (spelling?) or some dilluted gene? I'm not too good at anything genetic.. I'm trying to learn.

I don't think so, although I wouldn't know. I'm curious to what other people think/are sure of.

It looks kind of like silver bay, but it's hard to tell since it doesn't show his tail. Are there any other pictures of him? It also looks like he may have silver eyelashes, which would give away the silver bay.

I'm not sure though. It looks veryyy similar to the gulastra plume, but that affects tails rather than manes.

I think silver bay too.

In Welsh, that grey color to the mane ect is very common, and it's not from the silver gene. It's typically chestnut horses.

Our bay Clydesdale has the silver like that in his mane and tail, I was told it was likely caused by Sabino and "Wild" Bay... but that hasn't been confirmed.

If the tips of his ears were dark I would say he was a silver bay, even though I have never seen one with that color mane. However, it was my understanding that bays always have at least the tips black/dark?

So, could he be chestnut with sabino? Looking at his face? I'll look for more photos of him.

Yep. Chestnut. But what makes his mane turn that color?
