Our Perlino Silver mare (EE Aa NZ) mare foaled to day. She has given us one Buckskin Silver already, last year she gave us a Homozygous Buckskin (EE AA) and this year..I am sure is a Silver, again. Of course a colt. Was hoping for a filly to keep from her due to her age. : )
However, my hubby says we can NOT sell this colt ( he KNOWS my rules of keeping fillies only!LOL) and his reason is: we don`t know if Happy_lips will ever have another foal....
We are thinking of breeding her on her foal heat either back to the same sire (EE Aa..possible Brown At but not tested) OR our one Perlino stallion (Ee Aa).
FYI she is 1/2 QH, 1/2 Welsh and although pass owners tried breeding her to QH and TB stallions she never got in foal as "she`s a hard mare to breed"..we have never had any problems breeding her. : ) Heck we didn`t buy her to breed her but so she`d get vetting, farrier and just plan good care (lawn mower job)..till of course she crawled under the boards and cornered the stud to have her first foal for us January 28 2007 Smile Hard to breed? She`s a hussy!LOL
The other 2 foals (colts) we had from her had barring but either Blueish ( the silver one) or Black..the Homozygous one. THIS colt, interestingly has Taffy colored barring with a mostly White mane and tail ( we know he is homozygous for the Black gene so is NOT a Palomino).
He is 1/2 Andalusian.
He also has the star burting around the eyes.

Looks like a standard buckskin based on those photos.

Actually he does look like a silver buckskin if you look closely.The end of his mane has white in it but that could mean the he is a light buttermilk buckskin. But i doubt it. Twisted Evil

The photos are backlit so I don't trust my eyes. Laughing

Photography term, sorry. Laughing The lighting coming from behind the subject. It tends to lighten and illuminate things. This is back lit:
http://www.accphotography.com/gallery/download/16618-3/IMG_3698.jpg

It makes her hair look alot whiter/blonder than it is. It does that especially with fine hair and I've been fooled into thinking some chestnut foals were flaxen due to it, etc. I prefer to judge color from photos taken on an overcast day or with the light low (late afternoon) and behind the photographer. Oh and nothing behind the horse that can be seen as part of them (like his light colored mom standing behind his mane).

But that's from a photographer's eye so shots unlike that might be easier for other people to see than they are for me.

Wow is he a pretty shade.

I see alot of baby flaxen and buckskin frosting right now. Silver could definitely be there *I* just don't see it yet. Laughing

Oh no they're clearly buckskin. I'm just not sure in my own mind if they're silver or not.

I've never known silver to add frosting to a buckskin. Interesting.

Actually it doesn't except that the silver gene on a buckskin makes the horse look frosty.

Well that was kinda my point. That horse simply looks frosted to me. I don't see a silver mane and tail. But then again I've seen silver buckskin with ZERO white/silver int heir mane and tail so who knows.

all my buckskin silvers have brown points no black hair whatsoever

Just received their test results back

this guy is a smokey black, ZZ silver



this mare is a buckskin silver and always had brown points even at birth
same for the two fillies previous to titania who was also born buckskin silver



here is shandy one of the buckskin slivers, she was actually born almost pure white with a blue sheen



this one titania I now know is a brown silver,


the day she was born
