Random thought - Since his sire is a Buckskin and dam is a Pally there is a possibility [depending on the sires genes] that your boy may be a Smoky Cream. It could just be me but from his knees down he looks darker but not like the 'points' on a Perlino. Or it could be mud/dirt/my wild imagination. =]
Oh, it's just mud! All of this stupid Louisiana rain!

You could always pull hair and send it in. Then you could show that for sure he is not "turning palomino"

He can't turn into a palomino, but he can have some variation in his coat year to year. My cremello is looking darker this year than he did last year- he has a white blaze that wasn't very obvious last year but is very clear this year. In his case, I'm guessing it's diet related (I've had him just over a year now and feed him much differently than his last owner) He's not fully shed out yet, so I'm waiting to see what he looks like once he's completely lost his winter coat!

On a side note, your horse looks perlino to me in that first picture you posted. If his mane is always that much darker than his body and isn't just a trick of the lighting in that photo, I'd bet he's actually perlino. Definitely possible with the buckskin sire.

I thought perlino when I began doing research on his color. And, his mane is always that darker than his body. That's what has made me think he's perlino...





Dunno, what do you think?

I think he's perlino or smoky cream. NOT cremello IMO.

I still say cremello the light colored hairs can get that orangey hue to them from dirt. Take my horse pepper for example he is not a dilute just very white max sabino or dominant white horse and his mane and tail have a very similar color to them as that cremello the white hair easily gets stained being out in the elements. He is also chestnut based.

Well, to give your dad a little leeway on this, I have seen pictures of very light palomino horses who looked cremello or perlino in their winter woolies. It doesn't look to be the case with your guy, though.
