    What colour is she??

    Always thought she was black, but she's got lighter each year and now looks brown, she isn't sun bleached in these pics, only just shedded her winter coat, so is she black or is she actually brown?

    I am inclined to say she is brown. I see paler soft parts - muzzle, flank etc. She is really dark, which makes it hard.

    Yes she does definitely have lighter areas, on muzzle etc. She has a foal this year from a pally stallion, as I assumed she was black I assumed him to be black (or smokey black if carrying the cream gene) so if she is technically brown, I assume he too is brown (or if carrying cream what affect does that have on brown?) ?

    Do you have photos of the foal?
        07-04-2012, 07:09 AM
    Yes, here he is....

    Baby looks either black or smoky black to me, leaning towards smoky. Smoky black (black with one cream gene) can be very hard to distinguish from black, but often a smoky black foal will be born slightly darker, as your baby is. However, that is just a guess. I am very confident that he is one of the two

    Thankyou so that would mean mum must be technically black too then?
