    What colour is she?

    Just a plain old brown? I know there are tons of 'brown' variations, but I'm going to be selling her eventually and I'd like to know what you think.
    Ignore the way she's standing, we'd just picked her up from the auction and she was mid side-step.

    Not liver chestnut. Sunfading black IMO.

    There's a lot of cream in her mane for a fading black. For the first time ever I disagree with chiila. This could be a minimal silver.

    I'm not seeing that as cream. That looks to be sunburnt mane and tail IMO. I'm with Chiilaa on this one. Totally fading black.

    BEP - look at the eyelashes to rule out minimal silver IMO. Also, minimal silver is more a big horse type of thing, you would expect expression in a pony.

    Yeah, I see the fading black now, too. On my "mobile device" her darker areas looked chocolate brown, but I reviewed it yesterday again on my comp, and def see black. Could she be a really dark bay?

    I personally don't think dark bay or dark brown. I have never seen a dark brown without the paler soft areas, such as flank or muzzle, and a dark bay I would expect to see some definition of 'points' at least in the face.

    Hmm yeah on inspection on my computer I don't see any silver. I shouldn't post in these colour threads from my phone!

    Never ever regret taking a stab. A - you had reason to believe it was silver, which was valid enough. B - Sometimes I forget to justify why I think a horse is a certain colour, and having that questioned reminds me that I can't just say "oh this horse is x colour", I should ALWAYS explain why I think that.

    Thanks for keeping us honest BEP
