In their first few weeks, foals have a special, very fluffy coat. It’s always very exciting when they change coats for the first time, because the colour can become lighter or darker. It can also change again over the course of time. There are 17 recognised coat colours, including such unusual ones as grullo, cremello and perlino.
Most Quarter horses have sorrel or brown coats.
