Hello! I'm so excited!!! My friend / trainer has started a business this summer: summer camp, b-day parties, lessons, horse training ect... Anyways, we have been thinking about getting a little mini to add to the mix for b-day parties and as a sort of barn mascot.
Few days ago she finally cut me loose and told me, "Go find us a mini!" So -I found one! 6 month old filly a few hours away.
I am 99.9% sure we are going to get her! Sometime at the end of this week, we're going to check her out. There are only two pictures of her in the add (and not very good ones either). By looking at the pictures, my friend and I are guessing she is going to be a liver chestnut. HOWEVER, we got off the phone with the owner a little while ago and she informed us that the filly's Dam is a Silver Dapple mare and her Sire is paint (reddish color). Now, I have NO experience with the "silver dapple" color. At first thought, I pictured a grey. The current owner explained though that her Dam is darker colored with a more flaxen mane and tail. So I typed "Silver Dapple" into google images and saw all the gorgeous pictures of chocolate brown horses with flaxen manes and tails -like the Rocky Mountain Horses and other miniatures.

^here is the add. For some reason it won't let me copy and paste the images. The paint in the picture is of no relation to the filly.
Here's my question, what do you think she looks like? Just a plain liver chestnut? Or, like greys, in Silver Dapple's does the lighter color in their manes and tails take awhile to come out. Any information will help!
**Hopefully I'll have more pictures for you guys tomorrow. We asked her to e-mail us a few more of her face and standing with her head up.
