My mare is due to foal any time, and the anticipation of what she's hiding in there is killing me! I don't know history on either her or the studs parents as far as coloration goes. My mare is a buckskin tobiano, and the stud is a spotted black. Well, he's not even really black, it's more of a deep charcoal color. He has fathered palominos, spotted, a sorrel (mare was sorel spotted) and just recently a foal that looks either champagne or a smoky cream maybe. Not sure because the mare is a devil and I can't get close to see in the stall.
I'm curious, was the mother of the palomino a palomino or cremello herself? Because if not, I'm going to say he's smokey black. If so, depending on her genes you could get (based on my research because cream fascinates me. The color experts here probably know a lot more than me):
Definite possibilities just based on their appearances (Provided he's smokey black):
If she's a carrier for sorrel:
If she's a carrier for black:
^My guesses but like I said before, I've only dabbled in color research and I have absolutely no idea when it comes to spots
The mother of the palomino was not a cremello or palomino. I can't remember which mare had that one, it was definitely a spotted mare because that's all he has. So she was either liver, sorrel, or black. All spotted. I'm going to post a pic of a foal of his that was just born also.
But here's another pic of the stallion. Sorry It's not that good, he wouldn't stand still and the lighting was crappy.
The black that's on the stallion is not a regular black. It's lighter like a charcoal or something. And he's kept stalled so I know for a fact he isn't sun bleached. He is actually more white than anything else. Would he still be considered tobiano then?
