Ok, basically I have a filly that was born bay, turned a lighter bay over the summer, darker now with some winter coat, her mom is a sorrel, her dad is a gray, now all of a sudden she has some black areas on her face and on her neck. Is she trying to change colors in the middle of the winter, or does she have something wrong? She has the black legs like bays have, and has the black main and tail with some red in it, seems to be the baby hair as it grows out gets red on the ends, even a little blond on the very end, the dead part. So, can someone help me out? I have thought Bay this entire time, and now here we are. I want to get her registered, but now am afraid to do so in case she is changing colors on me at this stage of the game!!! Is this normal to change colors at this time??

Delaine: Yes, it is normal for them to change colors. With grays...they can change colors as time progresses. I had a chestnut foal once that was as chocolate chestnut as can be...he is now a complete gray at 4 years old. I would say, register it under the color it is now. You can always modify your registration (well, with most registrys...double check with them now to see if you modify the papers later with any possible color changes resulting from a possible graying). My APHA solid paint mare is registered as a "brown"...she actually is a black (she bleaches out in the summer to a liver brown dapple) but she started last year with "roaning"...I took pictures of the white roan hairs on her and sent her papers in and now, at age 6, her registration papers show her as a roan.

Some registries will let you put the color as bay-may turn grey. If not you can now have her tested for grey.

Thanks very much!! Okay, I will see about calling AQHA and seeing what they recommend I do for her coloring, and go ahead and get her registered before the registration fee goes up even more!!!
