How very, very unusual.

Yesterday Rosa gave birth to an absolte whopper of a boy weighing in at 10.75kg. Initially I reported that he was brown. It was raining and he looked brown, wishful thinking maybe.
Anyway this morning after a night in the shed he has dried out and his true colour has been revealed.
We have named him Patou Wilbur and quite simply have never had a cria of this colour before. In fact we are not really sure what colour her is. He is sort of silvery fawn.
We think he is rather lovely, but then we would.
Wilbur with his mother, Rosa. greets Wilbur.

Check out those silver legs.

And what about those ears?

What colour is he?

They are coming thick and fast in Patouland!
What a remarkable colour!
Maybe we need an addition to the colour chart "Silvery fawn"?

Congratulations - In what way does he differ from rose-grey? Have I missed the naming of Bannocks black boy? I thought you might call him 'Peas', and then he would be, Black-Eyed Peas...

What a beautiful cria ....great photos, could he be Rose Grey by any chance ? It will be fascinating to see how he grows up ! keeping a close eye on his unusual colouring .... Jayne

We'd class him as a roan/rose grey he's lovely, he may get more grey or the grey may disappear, fun, fun, fun. We usually find that when the ears are as grey as that the grey stays.
