Question What colour is this foal?!

My friend has this lovely little filly on the ground. She is out of a bay mare and by a palomino stallion. To me she looks pally, but she has black tuffs in her tail! Any one got any ideas?!






I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Hmmm I'm thinking sorrel or possibly palamino, might be easier to tell when she is older

Im going to guess she's going to shed out buckskin. The tail, mane and black tipped ears have me 95% convinced.

Don't buckskins need black legs, mane and tail.??? Because they are a bay with one cream gene ??

Foals are born with lighter points then the adult colors they will be. Even bay foals tend to have cream colored leg. The black points come with later shed of the coat.

This foal has its baby coat right now. Bays are born with a flaxen coloring on their legs and shed out to black in their first foal shed at a couple of months old. The black legs will come in a few months, same with the mane/tail.

Also, not every buckskin has black legs that go past the knee, some are a chocolately brown, and sometimes the black/brown barely gets past the horses pasterns. It depends on the individual genetics at play.

Cool! I just love her whiteish forlock and black bits in her mane! Can't make up her mind yet :)
