What shade of Silver????
Had this little boy born a few days ago. Posted him on my FB Colour group & know a few people from here have commented, but the more opinions the better. I will test him in a couple of weeks. He is either black or brown(seal). I am leaning more towards brown, what does everyone think. He actually isn't as reddish looking as the photos seem to show.

Hmm, I'm still going to say

Hmm, I'm still going to say black silver from these pictures! :grin: Of course he could be a very dark brown, so close to a black that the difference be negligible, but I'm still going to make the call of black silver! My black silvers sometimes have a slight reddish tone so it's not impossible I reckon! But yeh just as likely to be brown :oops:

He is brown, test results are

:toast He is brown, test results are EE Aa. I didn't actually test for brown, but it is kind of obvious.

This is him a couple of days ago, very weird colour at the moment. He has the whitest mane, can't wait to see him when he has shed
out as a yearling.

Very nice- but I expect that

Very nice- but I expect that form you now!
Possibly this would explain how Silver went unnoticed in Welsh- this one looks a lot like the Palominos that you know aren't Palomino, that I have seen over the years!

Thanks everyone, he is rather

Thanks everyone, he is rather cute & yes in the flesh he really does look like a weird chestnut or odd shade of pally. I never seen anything quite like it, but then I haven't seen many silver foals. Mind you the ones I have seen, including the 3 I have now bred have all looked totally different.

I have a feeling this funny colour is just the "dead" foal coat that is about to shed. Stand by for more pics when he starts to shed.

Yes, I was going to say Silver Brown- I am getting better at this!
I am actually far better at flying by my instincts than I am, these days of keeping up with the techno stuff- how much is it going to cost me to get one of these home??

He is now doing quite a good imitation of palomino.

LOL, not sure anyone would

:rofl LOL, not sure anyone would give me $5 for him at the moment, he looks like a hairy, chocolate pudding.
He has gone back to a dark chocolate colour with white mane & tail, so I think he will keep good expression, unlike his half bro who doesn't look all that silver at all.

I had a filly that color, out

I had a filly that color, out of a silver dapple Shetland cross by a homozygous black, and she was adorable. Unfortunately we lost her, a tragic accident.
