What color do you think my new paint foal will be???
This is my new paint foal.... His dam is a chestnut overo paint and his sire is a palomino paint..... What color do you think he will turn? He has a darker spot by his mouth and the line down his back is fairly dark as well as parts of his tail, but around his eyes is a dark red.

He looks like a red dun but with no mention of dun in either parent I don't know. He sure is adorable!

Thank you.... His dad is a beautiful palomino paint and his grand sire was a bucksin overo paint. My mare has recently turned from a sorrel paint to a gorgeous chestnut paint. I am honestly just thankful he didn't come out a lethal white foal because my mare has had 2 lethal babies prior to him!!!

I would say he's a sorrel with countershading. And to also not breed to any stallion that is OLWS positive, because your mare definitely is positive for it.

it was definitely an accident that she was bread by that stud horse.... 3 of the mares were all bred around the same time because he got out!!!! But no she won't be having anymore babies after him.

I am interested to see what color he will turn out

do you happen to have any pictures of the stud or his pedigree?

bird3220 03-20-2012 07:23 PM

This is my mare last year before she turned a dark chestnut color at 4 years old

And this is the stud horse

I will have to find his papers to get his dam's name, but his sire was Lucky To Be Gold phf - Page: 2 of 16

There is no doubt in my mind that daddy is a palomino and dun, or a dunalino. That baby is a red dun. Also, that baby is lucky to be non-lethal, as dad looks frame to me.

Yes he is very lucky not to be lethal because one of the other mares that got pregnant when he got out had a lethal baby 3 weeks ago. I prayed hard for my foal to have spots!!! Didn't get spots but God gave me a healthy baby!!!! I can't wait o see what color he is
