Do you think she will Roan Out?
Okay, My Varnish Roan Appaloosa had her foal, I am really wondering if people think she will roan out.
Stud is a Dun AQHA stud.
I have no pics of the stallion.
I wouldn't think so. The white on her back might spread a little bit more but I don't know enough about appy genetics to give a proper answer. Although, I wonder if she is going to turn bay? Her legs look like they have some darker shades to it. (Could just be mud or shadows from the pictures)
What color dun was the stallion? Red dun or bay dun? (Buckskin like)
Call me stupid, but I know nothing of colors, but don't all apps fade out? That is the last thing I pay attention to is color, the terminology of it, anything, I just don't consider it important. And I own paints, go figure, lol. Oh, I did own an appy too.
She won't turn bay. But I guess only time will tell, from these pics I don't think she will.
Can you get some better day light pictures?
On the roaning. More than likely she will Varnish out. Varnish is different than true roan. With varnish she (like her dam) will continue to get lighter and lighter while leaving color on the "hard" points. It is NOT grey.
Am I crazy to think that the baby could turn out to be a bay?
I don't think it's a bay. Very red little mane, no black ear tips, doesn't look like the tail is black. While there is a little bit of darker shading on the hocks, a bay foals black points don't normally look like that. IME they're born with a light "buff" color on the legs and it sheds out after a few months to black.
She is a varnish roan in addition to being a blanket, and absolutely will color out. The pattern of the dam and the fact that the sire is a QH are not relevant...
she may, or she could stay. my little appy was born solid bay and is roaning out. her **** is bay qh, her sire is a liver chesnut appy with a blanket, socks and a blaze. Used to own a chesnut varnish mare. Had 2 bay varnish foals with blankets and a solid chesnut leopard. You never know with appys:D
