Sarahandlola, sorry not my line of expertise....
But I am sure when CheyAut checks back she will be able to explain it for you, she knows all about that stuff!

Well a palomino is chestnut with cream. So they will be pretty uniform in color, with a white mane/tail.

Silver bay is bay with the silver gene. Silver lightens black based coats, has no effect on red based. It often, but not always, lightens the mane/tail, sometimes just a little, sometimes to white. Silver bays still have a bayish tone to their bodies often (some look chestnut though). Their legs are a chocolatey color. When shaved they will be greyish, often with dapples. A palomino shaved would just get lighter, maybe even whitish looking. Silver bays are often born looking chestnut.

Wow! There are lots of great transformations here!
I don't know if average sized horses (she's technically a pony, I guess..haha) are "allowed", but I think my girl, Lacey, is a pretty good transformation...I maaaaay be be a bit biased though.... Haha

Before: She was about a bazillion pounds overweight and basically ridiculously bonkers



2 1/2 years later (plus her winter coat):


Fabio - 13 year old Arab/QH gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

I haven't been on my computer. Work weekends are 12 hour days, rest of my time is spent with the animals or sleep. I will soon as I can though! (I'm at work using my Droid)

ahh, these guys are adorable! Heres some of my girl, Sour.


Wasn't really neglected or anything, just UGLY, mean, and in need of being shod/wormed xD almost a year old in this picture.


And now, at nearly three


(haha, this one is her meeting the new gelding. Evidently she didnt like him at all)

she's still got some of her winter coat, but hopefully you can see just how pretty she's gotten! Some lunging/neck flexation has cured her ewe neck, her back evened out, she's a total sweetheart, and her face...well, it reminds me of a babydoll's ^^

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Wallaby, Lacey looks great!
Hope her "bonkers" demeanor also improved?


I love the color of her winter coat, for some reason it makes me think of peach fuzz in areas....
