what colour do you say these ponies would be?
I'd say chestnut...but maybe I'm just jealous cos Wb's arent allowed to be dilute! (had a pally that could only be regd as grey or chestnut...*cough*)
Could roan out later...
i meant mare and colt
well, mare is roan...colt chestnut...possibly roan later!
but then...I dont DO colours!
They all look varying shades of orange to me.....but I dont 'do' colours either....thats why I stick with bay....
To get roan, you need 1 roan parent.
The mare above's sire is Silver & her dam, chestnut (but then she could be roan & reg wrong, never know, lol.... )
The mare's head is similarly coloured to her body. Every roan i've met (owned 1, chestnut roan welsh A) have darker points (head/legs).
I'd personally colour test the mare.
Delrae, i forgot but what colour is Toby/Junior's dad reg as?
see......Kylie 'does' colours LOL!
that was a cool link thanks remaani!!!
off to finish reading...
I would say she is a roan as her sire was roan who greyed out (now gets called a silver due to this) and his sire was a red roan. So she would be a roan and chances are her foal will eventually roan out as he gets older.
George form memory is registered as a minimal framed chestnut overo by a chestnut framed overo from a black mare
Roaning can vary greatly a copy from the link you put up
"Strawberry Roan is the result of the dominant Roan ("Rn") gene modifying Red (sorrel or chestnut).
Like all red-based horses, the points may be any shade of red, white, gold, silver, grey, or brown, even very dark brown - just not pure black."
I would say that they are roans but because Morgan's dad is a silver it is not text book
Oh, RPM I have just read your post after posting, so SPM is not a silver... now that is interesting, do you know what colour his mum was??
Well then that changes everything!!
I never knew, thats interesting.....
Here is a pic of a stallion thats a 1/2 brother to Delrae's mare (sired by SPM), he produced a black silver to my black tobiano mare (whom as of yet, i have not heard of her having a chestnut foal on the ground).
This is the colt by the fella above.
Again, i find this interesting, Delrae, i'd still have her colour tested as its always good to know 100%. **)
I still think a "true" roan has the darker points which neither do, they both have white ticking on their faces.
Sabino roan maybe? Lol.
I THINK SPM dam was taffy.
yep, it is interesting.. and the thing is if they are chestnut carrying silver it could well be disguised, unless a silver is produced as in the case of your colt
yes I think a colour test would be the way to go
SPM was by Dell Teras Paycheck who was a Red Roan
RPM, what colour do you think Dancer (above the black silver foal) is?
To me, he doesnt look true roan......
Exactly.. RPM, that means SPM was a chestnut roan carrying silver which is why he is producing silver's as do his progeny, which is what I have been saying all along.. Junior and possibly Toby are dilutes
Remaani Dancer has to be a chestnut roan carrying silver to produce a silver, roans can be varying shades especially red or strawberry roans whichever you want to call them
so i should get him tested?
I am no colour expert but to me he looks roan.
The thing is with these stallions being so old and of course changing colours as they get older (like alot of minis do) their colour always seem to get changed on their papers as the years go by, especially as the generations gets older.
All I know is that SPM's sire was definetly a Red Roan and I saw SPM as a roan many years ago.
probably would solve a lot of arguments whe nyou show him Em as with Junior some would say dilute and some say solid.. if he is a chestnut carrying silver then he is a dilute, if he isnt he is a solid, but I am 99% sure he is a roan which will show more as he gets older and he could well be carrying the silver gene as SPM obviously was
