I do not want to get into a debate with anyone but this is what I have always been told. Palomino is a color. I say it is a color because the Palomino Association has no specific rules on how the horse is suppose to look other than it has to be a Palomino of some sort. The Palomino color was never bred to become a specific standard to make it a breed in itself.
You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
