Thats pretty! Is that what they call Wheat sorrel/chestnut? Or is it just to certain breeds like the haflinger?

I call that a... palomino? Hey, I've got one of those! But I don't think he even knows what color he's supposed to be other than "fluff ball" lol

If he is a purebred Arabian, he can't possibly be palomino.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Pali doesn't run in Arab genetics. There are no dilute genes in purebred Arabs.

Are you positive he's pure? I'm currently drooling over a buckskin Arab.... That beautiful color somehow came out in the 1/64 of that horse that isn't pure Arab. If this horse is pure, what color is this? I've never seen it.

Interesting. Never heard that before. But then again, I have never discussed or read so much about colors and dilute genes as on this forum.

Arabians are about as pure as it gets so they don't have a lot of colors mixed up in them. From what I understand, you get pure Arabs in chestnut, black, bay, and grey. That's about it. There are a few other things that can do funny stuff to a coat as well, like sabino. But I'm not well informed on those.

I don't see where anyone said he was a purebred... Could be partbred, some horses do come out looking 99% one breed when they're a cross... It couls also be he's 99% Arab and 1% something else, who knows?
