This is Jewel, a coming 2 yr. old warmblood filly. What color would you say she is? Her mother was about the same color, father is black.

The insides of her ears are blonde/palomino, no dorsal stripe, mane is blackish/bleached blonde.

She's got dark legs & dark tips on her ears, so assuming that the lighter colours on her fetlocks are just mud, I'd say she's bay. My boy was bay, but he had sections of "strawberry blonde" in his mane as well, especially after spending time in the FL sun. She could also just be brown, but it can be hard to tell sometimes since both colours are pretty closely linked genetically.

I'm no good with colors but could she be smoky black?

CPEA The Smoky Black Color

She looks like pictures I've seen of confirmed (genetically tested) smoky black horses...

She's definitely cute, whatever she is!

I'm leaning more toward very dark bay, but it is possible shes a smoky black. Does the dam or sire have a cream gene anywhere in their bloodline? We have a smoky black stud colt at the farm and he is iron gray freshly shed out with white in his tail, but it can express in many ways. Some you can't even tell.

I would also say bay. My 3/4 TB mare is the same color (and her show name is Javah because that's the kind of color she is :D) and I just registered her with the USEA as bay. There's really nothing other than bay to describe her.

I'm curious as to what kind of WB she is too. Can't quite figure it out... hmm...

I looked at a mini filly that was cremello, mother was smokey black and looked just like that. Although, the owner didnt know she was smokey black. Father was palomino so in producing a cremello filly, mother had to be smokey black since it takes 2 copies of the gene. If it werent for the cremello filly, you'd just think she was sun bleached.

Jewel is Hanoverian (sire) and TB (dam). Don't know anything else about her sire except that he is a striking black with a blaze and 4 whites. I think his name is Devon Heir. He's about 17.2 and Jewel is already 15.2 at almost 2. She's going to be a tall girl. She really is a cutie. Just started working with her and if I want her, she's mine. Just finished getting my gelding that I've had since he was a yearling, now 5 trained and reliable and trying to decide if I want to start over with another young one...... My friend doesn't have the time or confidence and has offered her to me for free.

The lighting in the pictures is really bad. I would say bay with a possibility of being brown.

I would say bay or brown is best guess....I might say she could be an off liver chestnut with a really dark mane an tail...but thats an unlikely guess lol

Very pretty girl though...and at 2 she is the size of my 7 y.o gelding lol that makes me laugh...

maybe she has a dorsal stripe because she is going to be a draker bay, you never know she could roan out or she may be dun.

If the sire was black, I would think bay is her color. I would keep this filly, she will be worth a lot of money in a few years and even if you don't decide to keep her she would be a good investment to sell at a later date.

She's so pretty! I would probably say bay, but definitely a unique type of bay :)
