    Shhhhhh ND, I choose to live in a happy world where everyone calls their horses by the correct colour and if in doubt, they all test!

    Okay, no sign of a E gene on that filly. Not saying there isn't an Agouti modifier hiding but I think with a bay roan and a perlino you would have a higher chance of a bay turning buckskin coat and not a full chestnut coat. The red mane and tail tell me no E gene. Unless the creme gene is hiding it under the skin or something

    Crossover, unless you are seeing different pictures than the one in the main post I don't see how you can say there is no black hairs in the mane/tail. There is not enough of the mane showing and you cannot see the tail at all.

    Looks like a bay, but if mother was a diluted then the foal will have a diluted gene. Unfortunately at this age you can't really say what color they will be, my horse was a blood bay for 2 years of his life, then all of a sudden turned flea bitten grey!

    Looks red based, my guess is palomino. Dry pics would be nice!

    I ride for a stud that breeds coloured ponies (pally, buckskins, cremello, roan) and we had a foal born nearly the same colour 4 years ago. He is registered as bay roan(as this was the only possibility colour wise, with genetics), and only this year the roan is starting to come out. So you may have to wait a while to really know her colour! (:

    The darkness of the mane and ears I believe are due to the fact they are still damp. Yes, more pics would be helpful, plus dam and sire pics.... but I'm still sticking with red based with what information I have available.

    Mum is def cremello, sire is def red roan!! Foal was still damp in pics, i've just been to see her this evening and now she's dried out she does look a little different to the first pic, forgot to take my camera though, so will see if she can email me another pic through and I will add it!! She is a beautiful filly with the longest legs!!

    Just waiting for some new pictures to be emailed and then I will add then, my friend also asked me to ask you about last years foal (from the same 2 parents) he was born palomino and white, when his winter coat came through this year he lost all the palomino and was solid white (cream), will he stay that way now? Will also have pictures of him to add shortly.
