Meet my new horse, TJ! Draft yearling! And Q's about color...

Meet the newest addition to our family, TJ. A yearling draft colt [un-cut, but not for long ]. The woman I bought him from said he's a full [un-registered] Shire, but I've gotta say...I think he looks more like a Clyde, especially his coloring... He's the most darling thing since sliced bread!

Q's: I have absolutely no clue what color he is, or what color he will turn into when he matures, any help??? He looks kinda blue roan, but may shed out...he also has some red-roan on his shoulder. -shrug- I'm hopeless when it comes to genetics. Do you think he may turn gray?

Awh, thank you!! I'm rather fond of him, too. He is like a big puppy dog - when he canters around, he is such an ungainly, clumsy thing, always tripping over himself and bumping into things. When he goes down hill he looks drunk.

Sorry, I can't help you in the color genetics department but I just wanted to let you know he is absolutely adorable! When he matures I betcha he will be such a handsome fella.

I love that little mark on his white blaze, too cute!

That's OK, thank you anyways!!! I love the dot on his face, too. My mom said it's his "third eye". I'm so excited to see how he turns out when he's fully mature!

And HeyBird, I most definitely will! It's certainly a sight to behold. I'll upload some video's when we figure out how to upload them onto the computer, haha. I'll have to tape him when I come out to feed him - he trips over himself trying to get to the gate in time, the big lug.

Yay! Congrats. I'm getting my clyde filly soon =) I agree... I think he looks like a draft (at least his pronounced roman nose does). Colors... I'm no help, either. I just spent hours trying to figure out what my filly's colors are.
Anyway, He's so cute and he is going to be gorgeous.

looks like a blue roan right now. Haven't a clue if he will stay that way or turn more of a gray/black color but true blue roans usually stay blue roan

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

shires and clydes can look similar. Did you get a peek at his parents? He looks like hes going to be a roan. It can change. As for the breed he has the looks of a shire.
