Wow, thanks.To my eyes, the mare looks sabino bay roan (vs. "true roan").
First foal looks silver bay.
Second foal looks sabino roan sorrel.
Stallion -- Grey?
Stallion by the stallion, sabino roan sorrel I think.
Lol... well im just informed the "grey" coloured stallion was roan but greyed out & is now reg as a silver??To be true roan, one parent must be roan, but I think your mare is sabino roan. She's not true roan with all that white ticking on her head (true roan would have a solid, dark head).
I love "mini" colors
Thanks Jill.Silvers can go greyHe could even be a sorrel silver gone grey -- where'd you'd never even know to look he carried silver. OR he could be a very roaned out (vs. really greyed) sabino but to me, he looks grey at this time.
Thanks Jill.That mare is not silver. I think people must have looked at the body color and use that to describe the horse color (which sounds reasonable enough but isn't correct). If that mare were silver, she'd have a flaxen mane and tail like the silver dapple you posted. She's black based and silver on black turns the mane / tail flaxen and would change the body color, too.
She's tricky, though, and I do not know what her color is. I want to say black sabino, because if she were a horse going grey and is 15yo in the picture, then I'd expect her to be "white" now and not have that black mane and tail still at all. If she were a much younger mare, I'd have guessed she's a black going grey.
I sure don't have the definitive answers, but it's fun to try and your horses are easy and nice to look at as well
