Any ideas on this DD?
This is dustys half sister, we 'think' shes a smokey cream or perlino? Her sire is "Lazy D Rocks Golddigger" buckskin (same sire as my colt Dusty) Her dam is "Forgotton Sensation" orange pally mare who is a QH x Australian Stock horse(ASH) Sensation's sire is a cherry red chestnut QH "Amaroo Forgotton Hero" & her dam was a medium shade pally ASH mare, the nice golden coloured type. All pics of parents & grandparents can be seen here: http://etongrove.webs.com/broodmares.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; The dam of the filly in question, just like her full sister, were both born red with red manes and tails and shed to orange coloured pallies. There sire Hero seems to throw the darker coloured dilute shades, im not sure why or how that happens? Anyhow the filly was born a real smokey grey colour but now looks like a perlino or cremello. Sire is tested EeAa. Carries red :( Any ideas? We (Im best mates with owner of the stud & created her website) will be getting her tested whens shes reg, dna'd & weaned.

not quite that dark Audrey, she also has an orange tinge to her ears now, and dark spots on her muzzle? I always thought DD had to have fully pink skin? she does have a blaze but of course hard to see on a DD! :D

I'm going to guess perlino then. She's a tough one. I'd have to test her before I'd commit.

Apparently it's not uncommon for DDs to be freckled.

Daiquiri Stud on OAO had a smokey cream colt, maybe ask her for foal photos for comparison?

I have seen Diaq's lovely colt in piccys many times, hes a hard one to tell as well! This filly is very similar to him, but I guess only a test will tell her true colour for sure :D

Wow, that's awfully even toned for a perlino. Seems dark for a cremello. Hmmm.

Re: Any ideas on this DD?

I'm really leaning to black base then. Because of how uniform she is (and what you've said of her birth color) I'm leaning to smokey cream... but she could be perlino I suppose.

Re: Any ideas on this DD?

From the baby picture I think she is a Perlino, not a Smoky Cream, but, as you know, that is just an educated guess.
Without testing you really cannot tell with CrCr, but she doesn't look like a Smoky Cream foal to me.
