Hmm maybe that baby is Perlino. It looks so cute!

Neither parent look bay or brown IMO. That leaves them either as black or red. If the baby is a double dilute, then the parents would have to be either smoky black or palomino, and neither of them look palomino. So narrowing it down to them being smoky black, they cannot produce a perlino foal. Ergo, baby, if a double dilute, must be either cremello or smoky cream, and given the dark colour, cremello is probably not the case.

I think the stallion is a smoky black. Could the mare be smoky black or smoky brown? The foal also has blue eyes. I tried to get pics showign them but that's easier said than done.

If the foal is a double dilute, then both parents have to have the cream gene to pass on, as a double dilute has two copies of the gene. So yes, if the foal is a smoky cream, then the sire and dam are both smoky black.

Ok, thanks. So, when I did the color calculator it gave a percentage probability of my buckskin tobiano mare and this same stallion producing a perlino. She obviously carries cr because she's a buckskin, and if he is smoky black then there's that. Does that sound correct?

Yes. Because she is buckskin, she carries at least one agouti gene, so can produce a perlino.

Thank you so much for the info!

I finally got to see the foal out of the barn! She is just precious! She had the entire place in an uproar, all the horses were so interested and curious about what this new addition was all about.

What a cute dilute baby of some sort maybe smokey cream? I'm anxious to see what the others say.

I'm leaning towards smoky cream, which would mean both parents are smoky blacks. It would be interesting to test her for cream and/or pearl, just for the sake of curiosity and confirming her color.
