3 month old pictures- dun?
It was already decided by most that my filly, Honor is a dun- but I thought I'd share some more pictures of her as a three month old to see if that is still the vote since I'm useless at color. Also, what is causing the lighter color on her muzzle, belly (belly is same color as her muzzle if you can't tell) and as 'eyeliner' around her eyes? excuse her winter woolies.
I'd also love to see what you think her little friend, Jigsaw will be. brown? Black? He has the same light muzzle, but not as much. The weird thing is although he appears black, there is a darker black leg barrings and a dorsal stripe on his back. (on the right) His dam is non fading black pinto, his sire is donkey dun
Is this filly palomino or chestnut? My guess would be chestnut but I just dont know. I've never seen a chestnut this light. Dam is chestnut, sire is donkey grey dun. She's 8, going on 9 months.
I'm probably stepping in it...but...ahhhh...what species are we looking at? : )
Sure is cute!
xD my appologies. All three are miniature mules.
:O They are adorable.
I mean... They look like a handful. Ill take one off your hands if you need me to... lol.
Very cute! Hmmmm I think that the rules may be a tiny bit different with animals of the Donkey origin but I am going to try since they are half horse.
For Honor, she looks to be simply what I call "Donkey Dun", anyone correct me if I am wrong on this, but they kind of have their own style of dun and seems that every donkey/mule I see with this has the lightening resembling pangare, now this could be just foal colors, or it could actually be Pangare (also called mealy). Only time will tell really, But her color is most likely "Donkey Dun" but I am not too good at donkey related colors :)
Honors little friend there Jigsaw, to me defiantly looks to be black, most likely lightened due to environmental factors.
Finally the filly, I would safely say shes Chestnut carrying flaxen and possibly pangare also, the reason I say this is looking at her reminds me of a haflinger, which a breed that commonly is thought to be "palomino" but there is no such thing as a palomino haflinger. They are all Flaxen chestnut, most have pangare as well.
example of a flaxen chestnut haflinger >> http://www.wynonabrown.net/New_Folde...r-teich-12.jpg
also, since the mom was chestnut this is very likely.
the foal looks like a palimino because of its white mane and gold body but if it is true that the mom is chestnut and the dad is grey dun then there is no possiable way she can be palamino, neither a chestnut nor a grey carry the creme gene. a palamino carries 1 copy of the creme gene (CCr)
hope that helps?
So technically she could be a palomino?
Here is her dam and sire.
another picture of Tempest. She looked chestnut when first born...
And her sire. This is also Honor's sire but not Jigsaw's
and her shedding. Her mane just recently started turning white.
Pangare would make sense, since Honor seems to have it as well from both of her parents (her dam has a mealy muzzle)
As for Jigsaw, thats what I figured.
What I find funny is that Honor looks 100% donkey, no horse at all O_o
but with Honor that's so true! lol, I wonder if she will look it full grown too... hmm it would be interesting to see.
