What color is this filly?
 
What color do you think this little filly is? I'm guessing she'll look like her mother (shown in video), but I'm not really sure what to call it... Not buckskin, not dun (no dorsel stripe)...

LINK TO VIDEO:

Currently calling her a silver bay ('cause she has everything a bay does, except she's silvery gray, not reddish-brown).

Thanks! :D

Fist question, what is her breeding?

She sure doesn't look silver to me.

Gatsby (sire), who is by Gonzo I. Golden Miss Tree (dam).

Silver is a term. You know what silver dapple horses look like?

She's sort of the opposite of that. It's just what I call the color - I don't know the real term, and that's why I'm asking you! :-)

I see bay, and that's about all to be honest.

'Kay. Thanks. :-)

:roll: Yes I know what silver looks like, I happen to own one.


IMO she is not a silver. She looks to be plain old bay/brown.

:? Well, sorry. I'm just saying that I'm calling her color silver bay (there are different types of bay, you know - blood bay, cherry bay, standard bay, sandy bay, sooty bay, mahogany bay...) because of her grayish coat.

NdAppy 02-11-2011 09:32 AM

Silver bay is not the correct term for her color though. Calling her a silver is misrepresenting her.

The greyish hue is more then likely due to her foal coat. Blacks and sometimes bays, tend to be born more mousy in color, which is what this filly looks like.

is there no pictures of her?
