What do you guys think? - My Ponies Colors
So, I was just curious on my own horses, color, and am good with colors, but I love hearing other peoples opinions, They both are pretty simple 'bases' but some interesting (sort of) extras
I will be posting their pictures below in two posts below :D
First One is Echo, my Miniature Horse, its winter so her colors show well.
I realize shes fat, she looks a lot more fat because of her belly fuzz, but shes on a diet currently.
I know I have heard before that Minis are weird with their coats. She has had this white speckles since I have had her when she was 3 (in 2007)
So I guess I was curious your opinion on her overall coat would be called by you!
The next is my Hackney Pony X Morgan, Jesse.
Note: it was morning and he had just finished in morning mud roll
(sorry, for the genital shot; he has a spot of white shown here)
I think I have an idea what he is, but again, other peoples opinions please?
Jesse also has a chin spot extending to his snip, it shades to gray.
Mini just appears to be a sorrel with a flaxen mane & tail, though summer photos are better for determining color.
The 2nd is a brown with sabino i do believe
I would say 1st is a Flaxen Chestnut Rabicano or Roan?
The 2nd is definitely a mealy bay. Just darker because of the winter coat :)
*cough* Faline the second is a brown.
Sunnymeade, can you post a couple of summer/shed out pics of the pony?
Faline BOTH those horses are brown. Brown is a testable gene/color. It is a variation of bay as both are forms of agouti that restrict black in different ways.
Here's a mealy bay (and as a bonus, a non-mealy bay, too, because it's in the same image):
A lot of people confuse it with brown, but mealy/pangare has white or grayish points while brown has warm, orangey-red points. Pangare can be expressed on most colors (though it doesn't appear to express on black), while brown is a "dark bay" horse. You can even have a brown horse with pangare.
