My New Colt Jet

This is the newest addition to our horsey family and the first baby we've ever had. This is Jet he is the son of our mare Doc's Golden Joy. I'm still a little unsure what color he'll she out to be he looks bayish but he is still pretty gold. I have a feeling he's going to change color when he sheds. The hair around his eyes is shedding out goldish but im pretty positive his legs are going to be black. Momma is a palomino and daddy is a dark buckskin.

This is Jet just after he stood up for the first time.



This is him now one month old.

He got bit 3 weeks ago by my grandmothers lab. Apparently jet looked tasty, My mom didn't realized one of they gates was open when she was putting the dogs back in the backyard he went straight for lil jet. He had to have 16 stitches its punctured and ripped pretty good. I've been using Underwoods wound medication on it. Its healing really nicely though unfortunately his is going to have a lil bit of scaring on his rear. Though I think once it finishes healing and the hair returns I don't think it will be overly noticeable.

He is most likely a bay but sometimes colts can surprise you after they shed out i've seen its myself. My friend had a light colored foal that shed out black.

I'm not sure neither parent is a gray if he did gray out one of his parents have a recessive gene. He does have a bit of a silvery under coat and the red on his is looks like a shiny black underneath so I don't know.

ya those foals :P my grandma spent many years trying so hard for a buckskin, careful breeding gene test the whole nine yards, she got what she thought was going to be a buckskin he even was looking like he was shedding out buckskin but then he like changed his mind and decided to go bay.

Well he looked like a buckskin when he was first born then he kinda turned golden red. This is his daddy Mojo he is a Dark buckskin this isn't the best pick I took it with my cell and he is darker than usual it was rainy that day too. He still had his winter look as well.
