I’m looking to see if anyone has a clue what colour my three month old miniature horse colt is? His dam is a flaxen chestnut and sire is black. I will include pics, last one is him 2-days-old and the rest at 2-months... note he has a dorsal stripe since birth. Any help is greatly appreciated !:cowdance:

    Meaning he doesn’t have a true dorsal stripe

    No, it's just dorsal shading. If a parent carries a cream gene, then he could be smokey black, if not, probably black.
