Definitely Palomino. But what shade will she be?

What shade will she be? She is 2 days old in this picture. I couldn't find anything like her in pictures to see what shade she will end up. Any suggestions?

There really isn't anyway to tell what shade of palomino she'll be based on her foal coat. She may shed and be really pale or shed and be dark. She may also change shade with age or even throughout the year.

Palomino is palomino.

^^Agreed, there are so many changes that a foal goes through in those first few months/couple years. She may end up going sooty and be really dark or she could end up going really uber light, there's just not way to know.

You likely won't have any idea what shade she'll be until she's shed out her 2 year old year.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

thank you. There was some website that said you could but the more I looked the less I believed that statement.

Heck - some palominos change shade season to season their whole life.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
