1 Is my mini a silver? on 11/3/2010, 2:23 pm

This is our mini "Trinket" she is registered as grey with flaxen mane and tail. Her body coat has white mixed in but no white on her face and lower legs. Her father was black.!/photo.php?fbid=484816643652&set=a.31428323652.53174.704873652!/photo.php?fbid=484816633652&set=a.31428323652.53174.704873652!/photo.php?fbid=484816648652&set=a.31428323652.53174.704873652

This is a foal she had previously.!/photo.php?fbid=491645173652&set=a.31428323652.53174.704873652&pid=6921195&id=704873652

She's definitely silver. I'm not positive on which shade but she appears to me a smokey silver grulla IMO. The foal appears to be black silver.

Thanks thats great! Very Happy She doesnt have a dorsal stripe. Does silver affect the dorsal stripe? Her winter fuzzies come in very light tan on her body. She was bred to a chestnut stallion this year. Any ideas on possible foal colours?

Sometimes dorsals don't show well in grulla minis, especially those with cream, even more in those with silver. She's just not right for silver alone or silver and cream alone.

You could get just about anything from that cross. LOL

Could she be a silver roan? It doesnt show in the pictures but her body coat has a lot of white hairs mixed in. Not on her face or legs though.

Also her face and legs are much darker now without sun-bleaching. A dark chocolate with marbleing on her legs. Under her mane where theres no bleaching its a real grulla color. I`ll try to get some new pics this weekend.

That's why I'm seeing possible dun. I don't see roan though.

She's definitely a silver black base. I personally think she also has dun, and she might have cream as well. She's cute as a button!!
