    My 2nd mare foaled yesterday in the field with another mare. This mare is a maiden but when we arrived at the farm, mom and baby were doing fine and she was a far distance from the boss mare. She is being a wonderful mom and baby is doing good also. Moved them to the stall though so I could keep an eye on everything. Very stumped on her color. Mom is a blue roan and sire is a silver grullo with cream. I am thinking a silver grulla roan with cream also? Really not sure; she is very light and just has a different look to her.

    She is gorgeous though I do know that. So glad that mom is being a good mommy-it always worries me when I have a maiden. 20180614_062833.jpg 20180614_062845.jpg

    Could that be a Dunalino?

    No help on the colour, the RMSH is an extremely colourful breed.

    Sweet little bebe!!

    I think that’s likely. Colour test her! :D

    A well known breeder in the assoc thinks that she is a grulla roan. Her mane and tail are quite dark. I will definitely be color testing though to be sure.

    Thanks! I will get some this evening. She is a looker for sure. Hubby just texted me and said that foal #3 is on the ground. Can't wait to get to farm and see what we have. He is not so good with colors and I asked him what sex, he said filly, but he hasn't looked!! lol
