Am I the only one seeing potential silver bay in the mini? Light eyelashes and dark hairs near the cornet band?? Plus the mane & tail are so uniformly silverish and don't seem to have much flaxen/yellow tone or much chestnut mixing.

Silver bay is a very common color in Minis, however I would still say that this mare is just a sorrel with flaxen. A silver bay should still appear like a bay, with a silver mane & tail and possibly silver "frosting" like the ones below.
They still have the dark points of a regular bay and the mealy muzzles & underbellies.

CCH I think it might be your phone. The mini looks a lot like Blossom colorwise.

Lilruffin - the silvers can also be so light as to appear flaxen red...


Blossom -

Thanks for the info on brown!
And Silver never crossed my mind. NDAppy, those mini's look a lot like her! Are you saying those are silvers? Or did I read it wrong?

Who knows what I'm looking at. The photos have such brightness on my screen that it was just a thought.

I wouldn't say it is impossible for the OP's mini to be silver, but I will defer to you and others who have much more experience with silvers and minis. I will stick to splash!

Sunny the top one Blossom is a flaxen red. Pistol is a silver bay. I posted Pistol to show that silver bays can be light. I don't think your girl is because she doesn't have a sooty or dirty look to her legs like Pistol has.

Here is a better picture showing the sooty/dirty look to his lower legs. He is nest to Blossom.


And one of him in his later spring fuzzies -


And one of him two months before the pic above -

I agree, I can defiantly see the difference, I personally have always called my mini a Flaxen Chestnut (that become a deep red in the heart of the winter)
But is it a possibility show could be gray or a carrier of gray if that's possible? I doubt she's a dominant gray because she would be more gray by 7 years. But yea, I saw Sabino and someone said splash? I don't know about that. Unless there's something I don't know about splash?

Grey is always dominant no matter what and IMO she for sure isn't grey.

Honestly I think she just has some of the normal red ticking that red horses get.

Fairly positive that second horse is brown his soft parts are very orangey colored. He is my colt Jet in winter he is bay with pangare/mealy. His light points stay year round.

This winter



During the summer

Okay, so her color is simply random ticking, that my overall opinion from reading all the posts. Does 'ticking' gain more substance with age? JC
