    I know you can't really critique a baby, but...

    What do you think of this little? My trainer bought a pregnant mare with a foal at it's side about two weeks ago for like $1000. I've seen babies before, but never a pony. I was just wondering what you thought... He's a welsh and about 3 months. He's super uneven now, but I love his head and neck. He should shed out to a liver chestnut... then possibly grey out, but I have a feeling he won't.

    Baby is almost as big as mom! Love his look.

    However - looking at how bold his color is - graying out would not surprise me one bit. Apache was VERY bold in color - had a very deep chestnut color and I was told babies with bold color tend to be the ones that are going to go gray because most babies are born in more muted tones. Apache didn't have gray goggles around his eyes for the longest time. All I found was ONE gray eye lash. Now as a 5 year old he is fully grayed out and headed towards being all white.

    What a cutie! I agree with above post. I wouldn't e surprise if she grays out. There is a pony breeder who always comes to the backyard shows and she brings her babes. One show they are all chessie...And the next she is bringing tons of gray welsh ponies. I didn't even recognize any of them ^^

    I agree, he may still gray out...He's a good looking colt, too.

    Foal
    He will most likely grey out. My chestnut welsh filly was born chestnut to a grey pony mare and is now completely grey (almost a stone/roan grey) at four years. The colt is beautiful though. He has a nice head and looks like his movement is pretty good too. The mare is adorable as well.

    He looks amazing! I think he will grey out eventually too. Beautiful looking mare and foal.

    Well, we'll see. She isn't homozygous grey so it's 50/50. It'd be a shame if he does though... his socks are so nice and I adore liver chestnuts.
