    I have 2 mini mares that I'm wondering what colour they are. I am waiting to hear back about their colour tests.

    First is Ebony - Her sire is reg as a Taffy, dam is a chestnut. Sire of sire is Palomino, Dam of sire is Taffy. She has had 2 foals, just waiting to hear back as to what colour they were. Ebony is registered as a black buckskin.

    Second is Bella. Sire is reg as a black buckskin pinto, Dam is reg as Taffy. Bella is reg as Black. Bella is 17 months old.

    Any thoughts, guesses?

    Thanks,
    Kim.

    I have no idea, would be very interested when the tests come back, colour genetics is so interesting:)*

    Very pretty ponies**)

    Mare will only be a cream dilute (black buckskin) if her sire is a silver (taffy) cream composite which is certainly possible given his parentage.

    The filly I think is just brown or black.
