1 Is my colt a silver? on 12/29/2009, 7:23 pm


Hi all,

My little foal, born here in France, is the son of a chestnut flaxen Comtois stallion (with marbled legs) and a pure black Merens mare. Merens as a breed never have any white but have a reddish tinge to their black coats in winter.

His father

the foal

The foal is a very dark liver chestnut with the same marbled legs as his father. His mane and tail started out cream like a palomino but are now turning silvery grey. The whole of his mane is turning grey but his tail has just turned grey in a triangle at the top.

Here you can see his mane turning grey:

What colour do you think he would be classified as? Thanks for your help Very Happy Lesley
