What color is Pony Macaroni?

Is it possible to tell what color the pony in the background is... was... she dropped off the twig many a year ago, but I never figured out what her color is called. This picture was taken before digital cameras were common, and this is the only snapshot I have of her available.

Just curious...

I don't know, but I also call my Pony "pony macaroni" sometimes.

Looks like a silver dapple. Probably. Could also be a very sooty palomino.

Here's an example of a silver bay pony:

I'd be more inclined to say silver bay than sooty palomino as sooty goes top down.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

Hmm … are those legs black or a dark brown?

That pony looks ridiculously like my half Rocky Mountain gelding that we've been calling "chocolate" (which is apparently silver black by the registry book). A "red chocolate" is called a silver bay in the registry book. Apparently he has been a "red chocolate" this entire time, and now I know that he is actually a silver bay, not the brown that we have been calling him.

Just thinking out loud I guess

Silver changes the expression of black pigment to a brown or grayish color. Hence the brown looking legs, red body (red remains unchanged so a bay's body color is not altered) and frosty looking mane. I suspect her tail was the same.

I'd bet on it being a silver bay. Very common color in ponies. I have a silver dapple/black pony (black pony with silver gene)
