Foal sheds are usually a dark shed. It is really hard to judge what shade of palomino he will be as an adult, but I am going to guess that he will be much closer to a golden colour than a chocolate.

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.

Thanks! His color has been a bit of a suprise with his parents colorings. She has always had painted babies.

Would the light spots on his back be dappling?

No idea, I'm not a color expert.

Looks like he banged his leg up though. Hope he heals fast!

Give him some time to mature, he might yet show enough white to get a regular color registration. I have a filly who qualified at birth just by the white on the side of her face in the qualifying zone but had a couple of teensy white spots elsewhere. Now that she's 6 months, those spots have grown with her and are much more prominent. Your little guy might qualify by his face white as well, he's got a fair amount in the qualifying area on his right side.

Thanks! The breeder said we shouldn't have a problem registering him pinto being that both his parents are.
