Carter (formally called, Dirt) was a rescue that I got on July 9,2011 He is such a sweet boy, but is very nervous. Anyways, I am wondering what color he is. He is a Friesian/Standardbred gelding and stands 17.1hh at 5 years old. =) Any info on him would be fantastic!

looks rose grey right now which will eventually go compltely grey.

That would be my guess as well. He'll gray out more as he ages and within a couple of years, there will be no questioning his color :D. He's a cute boy.

Thanks! He looks like he is greying out from being a bay. He has a half white tail which is very strange. He is dappled and people have called him a silver taffy, but he only has a white tail and not mane. Then, he was called a Gulastra Plume, but not all of his tail is white. So now I am asking again haha

White or part white tails are common with greys. I also say grey, and he is lovely!

Thanks =) He has a brown base coat and a black mane though...he is half friesian as well. It just doesnt seem like he will go grey though. Who knows though right.

Oh, he will. I can almost guarantee it :wink:. Here in the next couple of years, he'll likely be a gorgeous dark dapple gray. Do you know what color his standardbred parent was?

Danino 08-11-2011 12:23 AM

Not a clue. He was a rescue. I just noticed that in the pic of him in the surcingle, he is walking like a Standardbred...strange lol. He trots with the normal horse gait though. I hope he turns into a stunning dapple grey because those are my favorite =) Hehe.
