Silver Bay is an actual colour, equineverlasting, they look like this:


Like the others have said, she looks like a normal bay/brown who hasn't shed her baby coat yet. She's very cute =)

Oh just as a side note. When you speak of the 'silver' colour in her coat, do you mean the shine on it? Is she really shiny and it has an almost silver colour to it?

I have a silver bay foal, she is most definitely not a silver. Honestly she just looks bay to me, maybe chestnut, depending on her breeding.

I see bay with a mousy foal coat that will shed out. That's where the "silver" you're seeing is coming from. Actual silver bays look more like flaxen chestnuts like Quixotic posted.

Allbreed is down for maintenance or else I would look up her parents for their colours. Well, more her sire. Her dam is in the video, obviously.

Do you have any pictures? That would be easier in determining a colour. The videos are somewhat difficult to tell for sure.

and the silver bays can look as light (basically flaxen sorrel in appearance) as my little guy as well, or darker in color that they are just a brighter red color of bay with chocolate points.

My guy -



Two more bay looking silver bays

Guys I think the OP was not referring to silver the genetic colour. Have a look at a shiny bay horse, the light that reflects off is silver. I think she is seeing a really shiny bay, and wondering if that is normal.

^^^ That's kind of what I was guessing, but I was more pointing out that calling her a silver bay would be incorrect. I think she's just got a mousy foal coat, as many do and that she's just a bay.

She is most likely a bay but right now her coat looks grullo
