Default Pink or blue?

Hello ive got two tortoises, a Greek who 4 and a horsfield who's about 2
What sex do you think they are, we think the Greek is male and the vet thinks the horsfield is female but it's still early days. Have a guess for me
Also on my spur thighed he's got light patches, I don't think they're shell rot, as ive seen it before, but he's off to the vets on Wednesday anyway for a worm count so I'll asks him what he thinks.

My guess is that they're both females....but I only keep Hermanns so I'm not that familiar with spur thighs or Horsfield sexing.

Do you I am hoping that my horsfeild stays female, obviously if she turns out he I'll love him regardless, but I look at her and think awe look at my little girl pie, saying he will take some getting used to lol.
I've got my head around my spur thigh being a girl, as tbh I had a sneaky suspicion that he could be a she. But anyway the name stays the same I'm sure Tobias won't mind what I call her lol
