all right...what color is this baby?

This isn't my filly,but I do have permission to post pics. I took these today...and she is 3 days old I believe now. Her sire is a perlino and her dam is chestnut. She is really light around the muzzle. What color is she?

Palomino. She could be a buckskin, but I don't see it. It's not unusual for palomino to present really red as a foal.

With a double dilute as the daddy, baby can only ever be a dilute.

...would that change if daddy was cremello and not Perlino?. I can't remember for 100%, but they may have said cremello. I remember there was a chance for chestnut I'm pretty sure...

Bad memory...too many concussions...lol...sorry

With dad being a double dilute, his foals will always inherit one copy of the cream gene. So she's either palomino or buckskin (or smokey black which this foal obviously is not) Im guessing the foal is palomino. The reddish tint will shed out with the foal coat and become more golden as the foal ages. Baby is sooo adorable.

No. Cremello is sorrel/chestnut with 2 dilute genes, and perlino is bay with 2 dilute genes. If there was a chance it would be chestnut, sire was either palomino or buckskin (only 1 dilute gene) or someone didnt understand equine color genetics.
