Cashmere Beige! Harrods of London charge a fortune for sweaters in this colour LOL. Trouble is, as they get older, foals will darken/lighten so you never know what you will get. Lippizaners are born black before they turn white. Anyway, no matter what, her colour is gorgeous and so is she.

You can have a pretty darn good idea what a horse's color is as a foal, it's just a matter of not knowing the exact shade.

If she's not bay, then my first guess is a long shot but would have to be red dun. In the 4th pic u can see her back, and it looks like there may be a possible dorsal stripe?

Neither parent is dun, therefore she cannot be dun. I'm going to say buckskin. She looks similar to every other buckskin foal I've seen. Pretty adorable though, I definitely wouldn't toss her out of my barn!!

I'd say Buckskin as well going off of those photos.

We don't have 'buckskin' as a recognised colour in England, only dun, however "Cashmere Beige" is not only beautiful but considered VERY POSH!

The "white" Lippizaners are actually gray. Those horses are still genetically black, then the gray gene covers that.


I agree with the foal being buckskin.

Lippizaners are the only horses in the world who are called white. All other 'white' horses are called greys. See The Spanish Riding School of Vienna LOL
