Hi can anyone help me with the difference between a Chocolate Silver Dapple and a Silver Dapple?

Pictures would be great if anyone has any.

Thanks as usual.

His daughter...Fiddlestix Silver Silhouette is a Silver Dapple and her 1/2 sister..Fiddlestix Silver Symphony is also a Silver Dapple.

This is kind of a bad picture of my little Ebbie who the experts here on this board told me she was a chocolate silver dapple so it sounded good, and I went with that. I have no idea why.

She's for sale by the way too.

Lori, here is a picture of Liberty, my silver dapple yearling. She has flax colored mane and tail. May be that one of differences between a chocolate silver and a silver dapple is the color of the mane and tail is much lighter. Hope this helps; but it's just a guess on my part regarding the difference.

Technically there is no difference.

Almost all sivers turn to the dark chocolate color in summer.

The dapples are normally only seen when clipped and in winter coat.

But offcourse there is the dfference in shades like chestnuts can have too, some are darker some are lighter.

Geneticly it´s exactly the same!
