What color does this look like to you?
Her sire and dam are palominos, her dam is a sooty palomino. At first we thought she was a sorrel but now she is shedding out black. Any ideas?

I don't anything about genetics, but the color of her mane looks to be the same color as my first mare. She was a liver chestnut.

i bet she'll suprise you and shed out to be a sooty palomino.

Do you have any pics as a younger foal? I don't like guessing when they are this stage as the baby fuzz can be pretty well sunburnt.

Always remember that the first shed is the darkest shed.

This is her a couple days old

Haha. Poor girl...she is trying so hard to be an Appy, but it's just not in the stars...:lol:

It will be interesting to see her all shed out...

Chestnut/sorrel would be what she is imo. :-)

I agree face. Some horses just try so hard to be Appys but never quite succeed. :rofl:

Cute baby...

I would agree with chestnut/sorrel. It's hard to tell with baby fur & the first shed. You'll just have to wait and see what her mane does ;)
