Question what is his color ?

Waiting for my mini to arrive, but can't tell what color he has The breeder say he is a silver bay and he is reg. As a silver dapple, But don't think he's a silver. His father is a black appaloosa (looks gray with white mane and tail), his mother is bay tobero.

He looked like this as a foal:

And now as one year, the first is from when som of his winter coat was still on:

My album with all pics of him and mom and dad:

If i'm not mistaken, silver bays have silver or flaxen manes & tails, not black. He looks like a regular old bay to me with possible tovero markings.

I don't see any tovero in him, guessing on sabino ore splash. Whats confusing me is the bay colored leg and how light he is in his base color. All bays I've seen have been darker in color with black legs. His tail is 2 colored but don't know yet if it's baby flaxen ore not.

Theres something going on looks like the tips of his hair is silver ticked sure is a furry little beast our mini gets real fuzzy like that too what ever color your guy is very cute.

Tovero is not a gene. Tovero is a cobination of "overo" genes (splash, frame, dominant white, etc.) and tobiano.

Your little guy does not look silver to me.

I know, but he is an overo. Don't think he's a silverbay either but at the same time he does not look like a regular bay.

His colour does not make me think silver bay. However, his eyelashes do. Minis are just awesome lol.

Chiilaa: yeah his eyelashes is another mystery :p His lashes and leg make it looks like he's silver but his mane makes it not :/ He's a hard one ^^
When he arrives I'll going to do a color test on him to see if he's silver ore what he now could be :p

Oh & also, the light color in his tail could very well just be a trait passed on from his dam being a pinto ;) The light tips on the ends of his mane are definitely baby bleaching. My bay filly's mane l& tail ooked almost brown in her first year.

I agree about his mane,I think his tail might be two colored either because baby flaxen ore that he is sabino/splash. Like I said whats confuse me is that he is such light bay in color and that his leg also is bay and not black.
And the white eyelashes. But he might look totally different in color irl.

bay, color, silver bay
