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

    My mare gets dark like that at certain times of the year, she is just a pally -but a sooty one. I had her gene tested for the Silver gene (chocolate apparently) and it was not in her. Just a palomino :) he's very cute though!

    The silver gene does not affect red based horses, which palominos are, and is thought to be linked in any way to the sooty gene. It does not cause a palomino to be chocolate, and horses carrying the silver gene that are referred as chocolate palominos are not actually palominos but are black based horses with the silver gene. Rocky Mountain Horses are the ones most likely to miscall a horse a "chocolate palomino."

    Well I was close anyways lol. My mare does not carry the silver gene and is there fore just a palomino. I wasn't sure when I got her because oftentimes the black based horses carrying the silver gene have the black hairs in the mane and tail and my mare has them throughout her tail and mane. Any thoughts on that? I've been trying to find out as much as I can on genetics since I bred her

    He's adorable. Pinto registries are one of those odd things. I believe the current rule is you need a non-face body marking six inches in diameter or larger to register him. I have no idea if there are palomino color registries. I had a Palomino foal once that went through every color under the sun, including black, before he settled on golden. Be patient and enjoy the color changes!

    Lordy was typing to fast this morning. It should read "and is not thought to be linked"
