    okay I have a mini mare who's sire is a SILVER BAY Tobiano....her dam is BLACK/WHITE tobiano...my mare looks like CHESTNUT/WHITE tobiano but is she???? ';':confused:

    Now the stallion has thrown different colured foals, Taffy's, Black and white, chestnut/white's? That I have known off, any others Im not sure.

    Wished someone could help me with photo bucket would LOVE to put pics up.

    Is there such a thing as Silver Chestnut/white?
    Or could she also be a Silver Bay herself?????

    These MINIs are colourful arent they!!!!*#)

    There is no such thing as Silver Chestnut, because the silver gene is hidden unless it's on a black based coat(I think?). BUT, She could be carrying the Silver gene, and therefore if bred to a silver stallion herself, could produce a silver foal, if that makes sense? Pics would be incredibly helpful lol.

    :D Thankyou....She may have gone into foal for next year to my silver Buckskin dun boy....I did think she would be a silver carrier nicely donated from her sire,
    going to look at how to work out photobucket shortly cause I really want to share!!! lolzzz*#)

    Nazza, what colour is her coat where her mane appears to be white? If she is not white between her ears she shouldn't really have an all white forelock yet she looks as though she does (I assume she is the pony in your avatar). This could be an indication that she is a bay silver. A LOT of bay silvers are mistaken for chestnuts because the silver dilutes their black points and as they have red coats ......... ';'
