What colour is she??
Always thought she was black, but she's got lighter each year and now looks brown, she isn't sun bleached in these pics, only just shedded her winter coat, so is she black or is she actually brown? :?

Do you have any other photos of her? In all sorts of coats, winter summer etc?
|maddiemaisie ||07-04-2012 07:40 AM |
Some more pics at various times of the year
|maddiemaisie ||07-04-2012 07:44 AM |
And one more recent one!

I am inclined to say she is brown. I see paler soft parts - muzzle, flank etc. She is really dark, which makes it hard.
|maddiemaisie ||07-04-2012 08:00 AM |
Yes she does definately have lighter areas, on muzzle etc. She has a foal this year from a pally stallion, as i assumed she was black i assumed him to be black (or smokey black if carrying the cream gene) so if she is technically brown, i assume he too is brown (or if carrying cream what affect does that have on brown?) ?

Do you have photos of the foal?
|maddiemaisie ||07-04-2012 08:09 AM |
Yes, here he is....

Baby looks either black or smoky black to me, leaning towards smoky. Smoky black (black with one cream gene) can be very hard to distinguish from black, but often a smoky black foal will be born slightly darker, as your baby is. However, that is just a guess. I am very confident that he is one of the two :-)

Thankyou :D so that would mean mum must be technically black too then?
