    Here is one of my mare and fillies.the filly is off a black stallion..mom was reg as a sorrel with flaxen mane and tail but shedded out to what looks to me like silver bay..her filly also looks like she may also be..she is starting to shed a lil darker but has an off white mane and tail..what do you think?

    Mom does not have to be homozygous silver--she can have a silver foal even of she has only one silver gene.
