ANOTHER SILVER WELSHIE, US.
I just got this link from the new Silver Forum & thought it was relevant here. A black silver parentage & colour DNA verified. Have to say though, to my eye, she really doesn't look all that welsh in type. http://scarboroughfarm.com/page_silver_lining.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: ANOTHER SILVER WELSHIE, US.

Its most likely coming for Rosmels Cream Puff. ACC and I did a lot of research on those lines for Rosmels Cream Puffs tested Silver Cremello son Creme De Mint, and then the smoky black mare from The Promise. We basically ruled out everyone but her based on progeny,amount of them, the color of them. And now that she is also in the pedigree of ANOTHER silver welsh, its even more glaringly obvious that its coming from her.

Classic example of color over quality. Look like it's passed on too. That Creme de Mint son is the one I mistook for a Morgan, and I'm familiar with his sire, who is not very Welshie in look.

Re: ANOTHER SILVER WELSHIE, US.

I would not even consider breeding from something like that....it is not even "B" type, let alone "A"...UGH!!!
This is exactly what happens when you allow a colour or a pattern to dictate, but I also have to say that this also indicates quite clearly to me that the colour came in "over the fence" and not legitimately!!!

Couldn't agree more Rabbit, & I have said that all along. Unless you have parentage DNA in each generation, anyone can add in anything, sometimes it is deliberate, sometimes not.
Here in Australia, in most of the main pony breed societies that I know of all stallions must be DNA typed for parentage.
It adds a little extra cost to breeding, but well worth it.

I agree she doesn't look pb welsh :? I would believe Welsh x Rocky Mountain for sure (though I only know the Rockies by pictures lol)
She doesn't have a dainty welsh head but her head does remind me of a Rocky Mountain.

Re: ANOTHER SILVER WELSHIE, US.

The stallion's DNA is taken on his first service report. They don't confirm typing on every foal though. It's done randomly.
How do other registries do it?

Re: ANOTHER SILVER WELSHIE, US.

Yes, I've seen her photos before. I haven't seen any silver Welshes in North America who fit the breed standard which is sad because I think the color is very attractive.
