Roan filly any ideas what is her base colour will be ...
 
Hello all .. :-)
Have a 6 week old QH filly born dark bay (and is a roan) shedding out a lot darker then I expected.. was after opinions on her final color , I was thinking if she isnt a VERY dark bay then shes a brown or black.. she has too dark a muzzle for a bay in my opinion. Sire is a Blue roan, Dam is a Palomino.
I think will get her tested . 1st one was at a few days old.. the others the past few days.

She is either bay or brown. She is not black, blacks are born greyish/blueish/blackish. They aren't born bay and with that red tint.

Her winter coat will be easier to distinguish between brown or bay.

and I think your correct about her being roan...

And most bays have black muzzles, black tipped ears, and black around their eyes, just for your information. So its completely possible for her to be bay. If she is brown, her mmuzzle/around her eyes/flanks will be a caramel color brown, very distinguishable.

Yes definitely roan
Ok thanks for that .. .. also her ears are fully black behind them & not just tipped :) and the black around her eyes goes all the way to her muzzle :)

That's normal. A foals first shed is often their darkest as well. So it can be confusing.

I have absolutely no idea what her base color will be but that is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Just had to share.

Do you have a pic of her when she was first born? Like within the first week?

Well both foals, yours and the one in that link are black based but have agouti making them bay (A) or brown (At) IMO. I noticed there aren't any adult pics of that foal I bet she was bay or brown as an adult. See the first foal she'd is the darkest shed so sometimes babies can get way dark. I've seen palomino looks like they are shedding off black at their first foal shed.
