Im looking at a filly to buy and I am curious what color she will turn out to be. Her dam is a dun and her sire is a Palomino champagne. Right now the filly looks like a really light champagne since her skin looks more tan than pink. She has blue eyes as well. She has a red mane and tail though so Im wondering if she will turn more red.... The owner said this is the mares first foal so she cant say what color she will end up.

This is what the online ad says about the filly,

"Honey is just a beautiful filly. Her body just flows together along with her cute little head. The Dam: Sweet Zippo Zan Bar is a Dun and stands at about 15.1 hands..this mare is also a first time mother. The Sire: Skip Two Vanzi is a light Palomino Champagne and also stands at about 15.1 hands. Honey is a little shy but still loves to be scratched and played with. She has the blue eyes right now, which will eventually turn into a dark honey brown color like her sire's (Champagne gene). Take a look at her bloodlines. Price is negotiable."

Heres some pictures..

she looks to me like palomino. but since the sire is champange, you have that chance. do you have a close-up of her skin, maybe her udder area, and her eyes?

This is the closest one I have. The owner also has another filly out of a chestnut mare and the same stud that looks exactly like this filly. They could be twins if they didnt have any white markings.

here is the site that may help you determine what color she may be, although genetic testing would be the only way to know for sure. she may be a gold champange.

I also think she looks palomino, but to check for champagne, the pics would have to be much closer. For indicators, I would look for pink skin around the eye and mottled skin on the nose and under the tail, but if color is a purchase factor, then the genetics test is the only true way to know. Usually champagnes are born darker and lighten up, opposite of colors and other dilutes.

champanges are usually born with a bright pink skin and bright blues eyes. not like blues eyes that paint horses have. and then they start changing and usually end up being a green or hazel color at maturity. same thing with the skin, starts out bright pink and starts darkening to a tannish color and as they mature, it starts to get a molten look to it. it's different than the molten look of appy skin though.
hope the web site helped.

Does she have any dun factor, she looks like a Red Dun too me.

About Red Dun foals:
"Reddish Dorsal stripe at birth (usually)"
"Typically born with light/pink/peach skin that darkens"
"Dorsal stripe usually extends down into the tail"
"Top 1/3 of the back of the ear is usually orange/red"}

If she has a stripe, then she'll probably be a red dun, also considering her mane and tail, but there have been surprises before. My horse's full brother was born a bright cherry bay and when he was 3-4 years old he started changing to grey and now is a white-grey. The breeder was so convinced he was going to be bay, he was registered as a bay. Surprise!
