The filly that also has the same sire as my colt. (My mare was still in foal when I posted the thread "Any ideas on possible foal color?) Here are some updated pics of her. Still thinking smoky cream?

Yup, I still do think she is smoky cream. She has that very mushroomy tone to her coat still.

if both parents are cream carriers and carry the recessive chestnut gene she could very easily be cremello instead of smokey cream - between cremello, perlino and smokey cream the only true definite way to tell is genetic testing or ( if you'd rather be surprised ) putting them to a chestnut in the future and see what the resulting foal is. If the foal turns up black based ( smokey black or buckskin ) then you have a smokey cream ( as long as the chestnut is tested to be strictly chestnut with no other modifiers )

Breeding that horse to a chestnut would NOT tell you if it was smokey cream or not necessarily. If that colt is Ee and bred to and chestnut ee you could still get a red based foal. She will be able to tell for sure if its cremello or smokey cream as it ages there is a noticeable color difference coat wise between the two.
