What color is my Jewel?

Jewel is my 3 yr. Old Hanoverian/TB filly. Her mother was dark brown/black and her father is black. I've been trying to figure out what color she is.... she has a little bit of a dorsal stripe, hard to see when she's darker. Right now at the end of summer she has a faded buckskin color over blackish brown and palomino/buckskin hair inside her ears?

Here's her sire:

Here she is w/her mom:

Pardon all the chomp marks on her flanks and butt! She was in raging teenage heat and my gelding didn't appreciate her advances.....

Her mom and dad are beautiful! She is only 3, could she still be trying to figure out her own color right now too? I am not a color expert by any means.

Based on the pictures there, I would say either brown or very sunfaded black. Her foal picture make me think black.

She can't have the cream gene unless one of her parents does, which might be possible if one of them is smoky black, which doesn't look any different than a normal black. Do you know what her grandparents' colors were?

I want to say she's Guerrillo coloured. They tend to have that brindled colouration But in some of these pictures she looks roan as well... It's hard telling.

Not Gulla. Not at all.

I'm going to do with brown on this one, although it is possible she is a very sun faded black. Will you be testing?

She certainly does not look grulla to me. All the hairs on a grulla should be that mousey gray color. They should not appear roany with different colored hairs.

She looks more like a roan. But I don't know the genetics of it. I think roans are like grays in that one parent has to be roan. So I doubt she is a roan either.

Based on her parents I would say brown. But she really doesn't look brown either.

All I can say for sure is that she is beautiful and TALL.

PS. How tall is she?

She looks like a fading black to me. My Dancer is a grulla, and they are nothing alike. There are some slight color variations within grulla, but basically, grulla is a black dun, and I see absolutely no dun factor showing on your girl.

She is sure going to be a stunner when she is all grown up!
