What color do you think she'll be?

So, we've been debating what color Paddy will turn out. I've already posted asking about what the chances are that she'll be roan and I know there's a 50/50 chance. I don't know what her father was or really anything about him. All I know about her mom is what I can see and what her current owners have told me. One question about her is, will she be a bay color because she has a black mane and tail or is there still a chance she'll turn out like her mom? I know foal colors are tricky so I'm just trying to get an idea of what I can expect from her. I'll love her no matter what color she is. :)

^That's the link to her pictures. I figured I'd just post that so you could see whatever you wanted. Her mom is in there as well.

Anyway, any ideas would be lovely. :)

Yea i'd say theres still chance of her turning roan. ive known a couple of foals that have been brownish with black mane and tail that have turned flaxen chestnut!

Is this the dam? I'm not completely convinced she's a true roan. Almost looks like a roany sabino to me.

Yeah, that's her. She may be.
I'm not the best person to figure out colors so I just went off of what her owners said. I thought she might be but never really looked into it.

That's a another picture I have of her if that helps.

She is most definitely a bay and will stay a bay :) I doubt she'll get the roaning that her mom has (caused by sabino)
Pretty filly!
