    Has anyone ever seen this color in a boer.....it is like a bay horse...black legs ...ears....he has one white spot... on his back.... could it be a moon spot? In different light ...he actually looks black... it is a first for me... :scratch:

    Thanks for your input... :greengrin: :wink:

    So he isnt red? he looks like the reds - but probably the lighting

    could he just be a paint with lots of brown?

    he has the small white spot on his back only...

    No...he is dark brown.... the picture of the 2 babies side by side.. one up on the wood and the other halfway on it...you can see the color difference.... :shades:

    He is gorgeous!! He looks almost a mahogany as opposed to "chocolate" or "red". Very striking with his black legs too. With the white spot he has, it's hard to say wether he would be a "paint" with extensive brown.

    I'd say non traditional :shrug: Some of mine have non-trad on their papers so you would be safe with that.
    He is gorgeous though!

    Wow, very interesting. I think he'll be a red. The spot doesn't look like a moonspot to me. But his coat will probably lighten up a lot and he'll just look like a rich red.

    Actually it was a boer :) And its funny that the solid colored kids on the boers always had coats that were way shorter and slicker than everybody else, idk why :p

    No I actually just curious...but who ever buys him...I will keep in touch just to see what color he ends up being... :wink:


    Aww...thank you so much.... :hug:

    So..it was a boer.......I to....love the coats on them...they are beautiful..... but this one ...has an extra sheen ...that none of the other solids have... :greengrin:
     
  19. It will lighten I am sure. The Dark Chocolate we had this year started black and has lighted up to a dark chocolate. As for the spot, moon spots do not come in white. Now if it changes colors that is a different story but white is not a color you will find in moon spots.
