What Color will Fawn be?

Fawn is 1 1/2 months old. She may be changing color, and if so, the change may be drastic!

Her eyes and muzzle are turning dark.

 Her body color is still lighter than the red dun color of her dam, Goldie.

 Look carefully, and see the dark undercoat and hairs all over her body.

Her ears are dark tipped,

 and with the dorsal stripe, is she going to be grulla?

Dove is going to stay a bay,  a deep red bay, just as sorrel coated as her dam, Starlet.

I just love this pose. Fawn is watching something intensely, and Dove could care less.

Let me know what color you think Fawn is going to change in to!

I haven't a clue! Looks like maybe a yellow dun from the color of her mane and tail and then there's the stripe. One thing's for sure, both fillies are solid built!! NICE!!!

I'm still trying to guess what color my two year old Arabian filly is going to be when she grows up. Her mother is gray, and father is black bay. She was born a mousy dun and now she's dark- black bay but still with the dorsal stripe down her back. I keep wondering if she's going to turn gray.

Yes, Fawn is a dun, but I think she is going to be dark! Her dam is a red dun.

I wonder if your foal will stay dark, or lighten with each year?
