His dam is 15.1 and his sire is 16.3 we are hoping he stays small for barrel racing, but all we do in our family is rodeo, halter, western pleasure, and hunter, but his mom was one heck of a barrel horse. And the Sire He looks brown never tested
Brown. You can see the faint 'mealiness' to the muzzle, which wouldn't fade first if he was a fading black. Also, blacks are generally a different shade as a foal that makes it easier to distinguish them from bays and browns. Thanks to the OP for including shots from different ages and seasons, as this is the easiest way to determine what the colour is
I think this foal is black. Brown foals are generally much more bay looking when they are born and darken as they get older. While it's more common for black foals to be born a mousy color it's not that rare for them to be born darker. Do you plan to test? I would be interested to see what color he really is.
Sorry to get this off topic... But as I was looking through his pictures, that dog really caught my eye. I am in love with his coat color. What kind of dog is that? He kind of has the markings of a Aussie Cattle Dog, but he looks like a Mini Pinch.
