Maddie I assumed was just a plain old bay.
When I got her in December, she was quite wooly, but she had black lower legs, red body, black mane and tail. Bay, right?
I had a friend over who hadn't seen her yet. She said she's not a bay, because she has a dorsal stripe and leg barring. Her mane and tail are still black, but now her legs are lightened up to a chocolate brown color.
I also found she is getting in little white spots on her butt- they look like birdcatcher spots in a way. Her vulva is very polkadotted now, as is her udder area, nose, around her eyes etc.
I know she has some Appy in her, and some Clyde, but no idea what else.
So what do you think her true color could be?
Pics? Too hard to make a guess without them ;)
I will try to take better pics to show her legs and dorsal stripe. =) Otherwise here is her pretty face. (just because I love this picture!!)
If she truly has leg barring, and a dorsal stripe(not just countershading which happens with bays occasionally. A true dorsal stripe is very distinct with no blurred edges.) its very possible shes dun.What color is the dorsal stripe? Is it black or just a darker bay color?
Her dorsal stripe is black. Ok I put a bunch of pics. Here is her crescent moon star, and her stripe.
Here are a few more
She looks bay to me... I don't see zebra stripes.
Some bays do get a false stripe.
Her white specks might be caused by the appy gene though!
Looks like a plain 'ole bay to me.
this page may help you decide
DUN FACTOR MARKINGS on grullo, dun, dunskin, red dun; stripes, leg bars, etc.
Basedf on the striped hoof on a dark leg, the white sclera, mottling, white specks and white hairs on her butt, I would say she has appaloosa coloring coming in-- the LP gene at work.
She still looks bay to me-- The presence of LP seems to mess with black points on bays and other normally black-pointed horses sometimes, making them chocolatey or mushroomy-hued rather than jet black.
Do you know anything about her sire's and dam's colors?
