When I said "I don't know much bout color" I mean I don't know what crosses make what colors. I can determine color well, but there aren't a lot of cremellos and such up here. But I do know colors besides cremello and perlino, just not which crosses make which colors.
The only horse that was with the mares that had been a stud was a bay paint. Since Sugar has pink skin, I am guessing that she got it from Hunny because the ranch where Hunny was born is a ranch where the man breeds for only 2 types of horses: he breeds for palominos and fox trotters, but his pride and joy is his palominos. So she could very well have a gene in here to give the baby pink skin and a light color.
We have a running joke at the stable because the BO has predicted that the first baby and Hunny's baby still had a week or two to go before they were born, and SURPRISE! Within 18 hours of him saying so, the foals were on the ground lol We are now telling him to go tell the rest of the mares that they have a week or so, that way they will have their babies right away! Bahaha! We think its pretty funny that for being in his 60s this is probably the first time this has happened to him. We can't help but giggle about it at the barn :)
We have decided that she will probably be perlino. Skin is pink, so she can't be a palomino. Hunny probably carries a perlino gene because she was born on a ranch that breeds just for palominos. So here is Sugar's eye because people asked to see what color her eyes are. They are both this blue.
The foal CAN'T be perlino if the dad is a bay and white. End of story. Hunny can't "carry" a "perlino gene". Perlino is caused by two cream genes acting on a bay or brown base coat. Hunny is a palomino, so she has one cream gene. The sire is bay, so has no cream gene. The foal can only be a single dilute - palomino, buckskin, smoky brown or smoky black.
Palomino foals are born with pink skin. Those eyes are not double dilute blue, they are baby blue.
