What color is this colt? Red, Blue, Green????
The pictures of the colt show that he is shedding around his eyex and nose a dark / blackish color. However, he was born red. The first two pictures show him at 2 months of age. The third photo shows him at 1 month of age, and the last photo shows him just a day old.
The sire is a dark chestnut and the dam is a buckskin. The sire has thrown a smokey black, several bays, sorrels, and palominos.
Chestnut, they often shed out DARK for their foal shed. Next shed he'll look normal chestnut again :)
His momma is beautiful!!!
I have NO idea, but wanted to say that that mare is fabulous, and the baby looks like a prize as well! Not to snoop, but how are they bred?
btw, the sire doesn't carry the cream or extension genes, so the only reason he's had smokey black or palomino babies is because mom was carrying those genes (cream + extension for smokey black, just cream for palomino).
The mare is gorgeous, I love her colouring!
I also agree with chestnut. He is about the same color my baby was as a newborn and now mine is a nice rich chestnut.
The colt's top side is Jackie Bee X Zippo Pine Bar and the bottom side (mare in the picture) is Double bred Watch Jo Jack.
I purchased the mare 2 years ago. I wanted a buckskin or somethiing other than a sorrel. I looked through a sale catalog and watched for two days at the sale and she was the last horse to sell of the ones that I had marked. Over the past two years I have blazed dozens of trails on her and she is very well mannered. She has also taught me a lot. The only down side is that she had foundered and showed the signs right after I got her. I am sure it was something that had happened before I bought her and was not told at the sale. Other than having to stay on top of keeping her feet trimmed and her diet I have nothing bad to say about her.
I love two eyed jack horses. I actually used to have 2 sons of Watch Joe Jack out of a mare named My Ole Misty. They were 2 of the most amazing horses I ever had the priviledge of riding (and one was a stud). Whatever you paid for her was a bargain, I'm sure.
Oh, and just to give you an idea on your baby.....
This is my boy at 17 days old.
and here he is now.
My BO has a baby JUST like that. His dam is grey and his sire is chestnut.
