This doesn't look Pali to me

I'm just curious about this horse's color. I found her advertised on craigs list as a "grade blue eyed palomino." Is this actually an example of a Cremello?

I believe you are correct.

A person on CL is WRONG???? OMG. That's never happened before.

More times than not I've had to stop myself from answering CL ads correcting spelling and grammar, among other parts of their ad that are wrong wrong wrong.

I know that cremellos have "hazel" eyes and pink/freckled skin. Palominos can be so light that they look almost white (I knew one like that, cute little pony). Though I have never come across a solid colored horse with blue eyes.

Considering that hazel eyes might be able to be mistaken for blue, I might go with cremello for this horse.

I don't understand how "hazel" could be mixed up with "blue." Hazel is a very light shade of yellowish brown, blue is blue.

If someone isn't used to seeing hazel on a horse (I'm assuming the craigslist ad poster doesn't know much) then they may automatically go towards blue instead of brown. Hence the "might" in my previous post. Of course, there was one particular horse that I saw long ago that was kind of in between hazel and blue...maybe like a green-hazel...which I thought was odd. I didn't think that would be possible.

Edit: Ah, this is what I was thinking when I said "hazel" and when I described the horse I had seen.

In the picture it does look like it has blue eyes, but it's very hard to tell with that mane falling over it:)

I know most people on craigs list don't know their hand from their tush about some things... ha ha. I just wanted to see if I myself was right when I say, no...that's a cremello :)

I too hate seeing all the "gildings" and horses with great "confirmation." Why do they think people care if the horse has gone to "confirmation" and is now catholic. I want to know what it's Conformation is LOL. I've seen snowflake appys (solid horse with a few white spots on the butt) advertised as strawberry roans....and they declaire that it is a solid horse with "roaning" on the butt. I've seen colts that will grow up to be very nice mares one day too...isn't that quite a feat. Sigh.... And miracle of miracles was the "gilding" that has been used as a broodmare and always has the prettiest little ponies that of course are all medal winning show horses now.

The thing that cracks me up is that everybody thinks their straight legged, tiny footed, knock kneed horse is such a great (insert discipline here) prospect and worth thousands of dollars even though it is currently a very bum high 2 year old who has never even seen a halter.

I agree, cremello. Folks just don't bother to learn about horse colors in general; whether it's just from lack of interest or lack of proper instruction, they just don't learn.

Also, I would like to mention that blue eyes on a solid horse does happen. It isn't common, but it's not impossible.

Perfect example is a mare that belongs to a former member here. A black MFT with 2 blue eyes

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/

Oh goodness there goes my lack of sleep. You are correct. I had champagne in my head instead of cremello.

That is quite a gorgeous animal. I only said that I haven't come across one. Didn't say it couldn't happen. Horses are truly amazing creatures.

I agree they look blue in the picture.

I was commenting on the post that said Cremellos have hazel eyes.
