No worries! I was pretty stumped when her mane started growing in dark..

My filly (an Appaloosa) was born bay with little blanket. Her black mane and tail have turned almost white. So I guess it works both ways.

Speaking of the palominos with the "self colored" manes and tails, we had one of those, too. In the spring, when he shed out, he was a red gold. For about a week. And then he sun-faded so that his body matched his mane and tail.

Welcome to the wonderful world of color!

I have a sorrel mare with a flaxen mane and tail. When she was around 6, her mane turned the same colour as her body, orange. You could see the line across where it grew in it's new colour. the next year, it change back to flax. Go figure.
I have one filly that was born very light sorrel, her mother is a pali, and sire is a darker chestnut. By winter she was soooo dark that I thought my black stallion some how got out, except that her mane and tail were very light. She's a year old now, and has shed to a very dark liver chestnut, reddish mane and flax tail. Who know what she'll look like by next year.

old bear. I had an appy colt, born with three spots on his bum, he was a bay with the black mane and tail. by the time he was two, it looked like someone had throwen a can of white paint on him, and his mane and tail were white. When he was six, he was back to looking bay with a nice white blanket and red spots and just some roany looking hairs on his face. His mane and tail were black but not much hair there. It was alway interesting to see how he was going to shed out in the spring.

It was abit of a eye opener when I started paying attention.. I used to live by the saying.. a good horse is never a bad color.. but it's changing to a good horse is even better with the right color!!

My friend had a baby born this year and she looked the same as yours but she has darkned to a chestnut and still as a touch of blonde in her mane and tail. She also had a paint baby born that looked like it would either be a buckskin or pal paint and she is sheddig out black. You will not really know until after a year when they have shed all the baby hair.

I think when all is said and done you will have a lovely golden palomino (think Trigger).
This year is my first year having palomino foals and I have to say I'm quite surprised in the variability. I'm used to the duns where you see the dorsal and know what you have
These two foals have the same sire (son of 2X world champion The Therapist) and the one is out of a palomino mare and the other out of a dark bay mare.
This is Fezzik-1st is @ 1 month and the 2nd taken @ 2 1/2 months--he's shedding into a chocolate. I've had plenty of comments at how ugly he is he's gorgeous IMO-just going through the duckling stage lol



This is Bella-1st is at a week-and she's staying that colour-just a shade deeper. What a contrast of her with her mom

Didn't I say "Dunalino?" The older she gets, the prettier she is, whatever her color!

I really think so too.. especially after finding out that her sire may carry the dun gene!

I found this mare on the internet.... I see very similar coloring here..

I still say no dorsal... Especially since the legs are dark all the way up now. The bony spine rubbed the light hair off by rolling, making a stripe of darker new hair.

Now, I could be wrong, but I've seen way too many babies start shedding and "get dorsals" from rolling the fuzz off.

I say she is adorable. What a cutie. It always amazes me how the little ones look when the hair shed's off like that. Reminds me of those toy horses with the velvet fur when it gets worn. Anyone who is old like me remembers those

I agree with muttduck and say no dorsal, but she is beautiful.

PaintsQH I remember those toy horses too!

If she has a dorsal it should go down into her tail as well.

I still think you have a very pretty dark palomino

Se looks like my new mare did in the spring. Her winter coat was very light when I got her and she's shedded out into a sooty palomino. Very cool colour with dappling on her sides and even giraffe-like markings on her legs with dark spots and lighter background. I'll see if I can put a picture on here...
Okay, it worked but she's actually darker than the picture shows. Her dark areas are the colour of dark chocolate.

Anyway, I'd bet your filly will be similar. And you'll get lots of compliments on her colour like I do with my mare!
