Help guessing our colts color. DNA results now in :)
Our pony foal is 6 days old today. When he was born I was sure he was a chestnut (even though there was only about a 3% chance LOL). The more I look at him, I am seeing things I never saw (or remember seeing) in my other chestnut foals. His eye color for one, which has not changed since birth. His skin pigment too, which has a purplish tone to it. He is just so orange looking. I have seen a few palomino foals on line that were born pretty dark too. Then he has the Silver gene, which can do crazy things coat colors and some even say while it should not effect red based colors, they noticed a difference in their red based silvers as foals. I know we won't know for sure until we test him, but it would be great to hear from others more versed in coat colors and Palomino/Silver more importantly. This was the first time I wasn't able put a foals "color" on the purchase agreement, which felt weird!
First two pics show his eye and skin color, the last is to show, no mater what color he ends up being, he loves to jump :D
