Miniís Sire and Damís Colors

So, we got a miniature horse a while back. Her name is Royal Stormy. However we donít know who her parents are, but I was wondering if anyone could guess on the color of her parents? Stormy also has certain strands in her tail that looks like they were braided, but it wasnít. Itís gorgeously wavy. Oh and can someone tell me what facial marking she has?



This is a semi-old photo. But sheís palomino.

The marking would just be a large snip, wouldn't it? And I think Palamino is just a cream dilution over red, I don't know how much that narrows it down though.

Edit: I found this online
Palomino: This color is actually the result of chestnut with a cream dilution factor. Look for a rich gold to clear-yellow body; manes and tails are generally white or pale; dark eyes.

Sample genetic recipe: Cremello X chestnut (will always produce palominos); cremello X any color; palomino X chestnut (you'll get only chestnut or palomino); palomino X any color; buckskin X any color; black X any color (if black parent has a hidden cream gene).

I actually think your pony is silver. Very common color in miniatures.

Is she registered?

Silver dapple with a snip for facial markings. Silver dapple is black with the silver gene and one of her parents would have to have the silver gene. Could have been bay with silver or black. Other parent could have been any color.

Keep in mind is has been a long time ago that I researched all of this and there have been great strides in color genetics since then so with that being said....At that time it was known that silver did not show up on red based horses but they could still carry it. I never heard though of getting a surprise silver dapple out of a red based parent that was carrying hidden silver when bred to a black based. Technically it should be able to happen and just because I haven't heard of it doesn't mean it hasn't happened. Just throwing this in here to show you how it would be possible to get a silver dapple out of 2 non-silver looking parents. The only thing you can be sure of when thinking about the color of her dam and sire is that 1 was black based and one or the other of them carried silver.

In that one she looks chestnut with flaxen. Did you buy the horse of a different color from the land of OZ? LOL I hope you've watched the Wizard of Oz and know what I'm joking about.

Isn't flaxen chestnut darker? Something like this? It looks Palamino to me, at least...just a golden one.

Chestnut has a range of different shades but then so does palomino so I could be wrong.

Lol 😂. Well I did take her photos at certain points in the day, some days were very bright, others the sun was covering the clouds. This one I think I got her pretty good in yesterday, Stormyís legs do fade into a darker brown color.

A picture on a bright sunny day but not in direct sunlight would be best.

One way to know for sure whether or not she's a silver dapple is to shave her to see of she looks white with black dapples under her coat.
