What color is BF?

Because it is fun....

BF's papers say she is Chestnut/Sorrel. What do you think her base color is?




Her legs are not black.
Here is a close up of them (taken after stitches were removed from the RF, that is why it is shaved

What colour are her sire and dam listed as?

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.

She almost looks like bay to me. But I'm terrible with colors.

Sire and dam, now that is a good question.

Not sure. Will look it up and get back to you.

ND or Face would be best to tell for sure, but I am just going to guess here.

She looks black based to me. As we know, LP can do some funky stuff to colour, and that looks like bay or brown with LP. However, I wouldn't rule out black with LP.

Because if we know what colour the parents 'probably' are, we can usually narrow it down to a few possibilities.

Um...well...her tail is not black.

Her mane looks black in this photo from 2007 (she is a long yearling in this photo).

In the photo from this summer (grazing with fly mask) it looks brown to me.
