Hi, My foal now has very dark rings around his eyes. There is what looks to be brown/black & Chestnut hairs there but he was born light chestnut. Any ideas whether he will go dark or stay the colour he is in the pics? Mum has thrown 3 chestnut foals now to chestnut stallions - the previous 2 went liver. She was born chestnut out of grey mare to Black/Brown stallion and breeding on the foals sires side is all chestnut - grandsire liver chestnut. Full brother to mum was Black/Brown. Foal has light legs but dark patches appearing down the back of his hind legs?? Clipped a small section off his shoulder to see what colour underneath and still light chestnut as per foal coat (hasnt begun to shed foal coat yet). I added a pic below of him at 2 weeks - you can see no colour change around the eyes or on his nose as per first pics I posted....Ohhh I would love it if he was going to be liver!! ??? He certainly has me a little confused at present ?? :confused:';'
