    Kind of looks like a Dun or a Roan? But then again, She's going to grow and colors probably going to change so I think that might be a silver dapple =)

    Baby coats are hard to judge. Photos of the parents may help decider what color your foal is.

    Do you have more pictures of the foal? Looks like a silver black roan from what I can see too, but hard to tell from that picture.

    I don't have any really new pics because it is foggy and rainy. So his outer hair is wet most of the time. He was born with a white (appy) patch (about the size of my hand) on each side of his bum. I know he is an appy. His grand sire on his sires side is a silver bay appy.His sire is an appy. I figured he was just another silver dapple when he was born. However, his mane has darkened and he is now a light reddish brown. I will try to get more pics if we get a break in this wet weather. Oh, and he is the one that hated people when he was born. He is now pushing in for his share of loves.

    I think he is a Silver Black Roan too form the picture- I suspected Roan right at the beginning. He can't be Silver Bay, which was the other alternative, so he must be Silver Black +Roan....

    I also think that this horse looks black + (true) roan + silver... And there are probably a couple different equally correct names for that color but the end result = pretty neat [​IMG]
