Color in Arabians - Rhocky Rhoad and Rhevelation
I thought these guys were great, and really interesting examples of color in Arabians, so I asked the owner for permission to put them up. I was particularly intrigued by the colt's color change as he grew older.. The sire is Rhocky Rhoad, a son of Khartoon Khlassic: IMAGE(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3594/3621380974_06b75966bb_o.jpg) IMAGE(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2483/3620561995_1f4368f667_o.jpg) IMAGE(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3650/3620562269_16ff7318ee_o.jpg)

He actually is bay, his owner said she had him tested EeAa. But I was fooled too.

You can kinda see bay in the bottom pic but looking at all the others I def would have said chestnut in a heart beat!

hmm kind of reminds me of this one:

I've seen other pictures where you can actually tell she's a bay but the sabino seriously faded her out.

Re: Color in Arabians - Rocky Road and Revelation

I was going to say Bay....the lack of colour round the knees in any of the early pictures is what is fooling people, but if you think of it it is not rare in Bay foals.
It could, however, as easily have been Chestnut, just in Phenotype!

This line of horses almost ALWAYS has its bay foals born looking VERY VERY chestnut.

That's what got me! Those foal pics looked red/Red/RED. ...until I got to the last photo and went: "Huh?"

Re: Color in Arabians - Rhocky Rhoad and Rhevelation

It's VERY true of KK. He's homozygous black and agouti, but look how many of his foals are born looking very chestnut. A fairly significant number of them. I also know relatives of KK that do the same.
