I was just wondering what you fine people think my girls color will end up being. "Carla" was born a dark brown almost black but now seems to be turning a grey color. Her mother is a blue roan leopard and her father was a dark bay with a blanket and spots. If she does roan out will she still keep her frosted blanket? whats your thoughts

She can't turn gray unless she has a gray parent. I second maybe a blue roan. Very lovely!!

It looks to me like her undercoat is dark bay, like her daddy. Very cute, by the way.

She may be a homozygous roan...which eventually looks like a few spot, after the roaning. This could be true if she got one LP from each heterozygous parent. My mare was solid at birth. She has the same white patterning under her hair when she is wet as with your baby there. Your baby seems to have the homozygous looking snowflake blanket patterning.

Here is the article explaining the patterning.

My mare, solid at birth...and dirty in the picture...with last year's Christmas gift.

I have a BUNCH of action pictures from that day. I have some with the bow under his tummy...and on top of his back. We joke that he had saddle training that day. My vet wanted that picture because the baby was the first of the foaling season...was weak and cold, and needed plasma. A true gift.

Ashley, it looks like she has vertical stripes at the girth area. If she stays solid and does not roan..I have read about this patterning someplace as well in an Archer article.

I will tell you a secret.....I e-mailed pictures of my mare and baby to Ms Archer and she helped me figure out just what my mare was....and how she could produce a full body white baby with spots from a non appy father....because she is a homozygous LP roan!! There is the appaloosa project website. You may have to join to get any help now...but I would give it a try. Search for Sheila Archer and check out whatever articles you can find. If I have a chance I will try to find just what I remember reading.

Thanks Jan!!!! We would like to see action pictures of your little girl on the trails!!!! It is too cold and nasty to do much here. I would think you ride all year in California?

Ashley, I searched for the tid-bit of info I remember reading. I can't find anything. I am sure if you join the Appaloosa Project and dig into their pictures...and post a picture there, you will get a bunch of help and information. Let us know what you find out!!! My guess is that she is homozygous. If so, she will be a great breeding mare!
