Here's is an update of Smokey (smoke and mirrors), still no idea what colour he will be. 2.5 weeks old now. The last one shows his very cheeky, energetic nature lol.

he kinda looks like a dunn to me. can't see a stripe but my friend had a dunn paint and he looked a lot like this. Or maybe buckskin? Imma newby but that would be my guess.

he certainly does look like it but if you read my first post in the thread you will see that there is no way he can be a dilute of any sort (unless he is a mutant lol). I can't wait til he sheds his foal coat an we find out what colour he is :)

Still saying he is black. Foal coats tend to get sunburnt pretty easily.

Wow, that's a toughy! He has black ears, and looks like black around the eyes, but I can't really tell if he has a black muzzle because of all the white. He has a lot of white in his tail, but a lot of foals have white in their tails and gradually lose it, my Jack did. Looks like he is going to have a lot of white on his legs too, which makes it harder to say bay or black. How dark are the parents? He doesn't look quite the right buff color to be black(IME anyway) but the color isn't quite right for bay either. I'm stumped!

I once knew of a little colt for sale, he was out of a bay qh stud and a black qh mare. He was a palomino!! Turns out his dam was a smokey black, they just never had her DNA tested so they had no idea that she carried the dilute gene. And it was weird, it was like her great granddam that was a dilute, it had been passed down through a bunch of "black" horses that were actually smokey blacks. Rare, yes, but it could happen ;)
