Congratulations!! I bet she will develop an Appaloosa pattern.
Many years ago I knew someone that was given a POA colt because he didn't color.....not too long after that he did start to develop spots...I don't know what pattern he finished as though.

She’s absolutely beautiful😍you never know how they’ll change sometimes it’s shocking but she doesn’t need to she’s perfect❤️
I’m not one to understand the genetics much I’d love to lol but this boy of mine came from a solid white sire and a solid chestnut dam. He was born completely grey NO spots what so ever, friends mistaked him for a mini donkey I’m not kidding!!! They magically started to appear as he grew it was crazy.

He's beautiful. His dad might have been an appy who greyed out, he didn't get the grey pasted on to him.

Sounds like his sire may have been a few spot appaloosa. Nice boy! If you get bored with him, feel free to send him my way!😆😆

P.S...I can't covet the filly, as your daughter is already bonded to her. My gut instinct is that she might develop some apps color too. I see tiny hints around her fetlocks, at the base of the hairs in her neck, and something about the coloring round her eyes reminds me of what's called "goggles"--that indicate a future color change.

At any rate, she's lovely.🥰
