    Guessing Game!

    Ok so I was looking up a certain colour gene, when I came across one cool looking beauty! I thought it would be fun to do a mini guessing game with him. Now, so you know, I only know ONE term for the colour, if there is more then I don't likely know it.. This should be fairly easy for the colour experts too :p

    That's Sir Royal Excalibur, who is a silver dapple Gypsy stallion, silver dapple being another term for silver + black. The listing of him as a "chocolate palomino" is due to the lack of education of his owners, not anything to do with his genetic colour. He has sired foals that are homozygous for black, which proves he cannot possibly be red based himself.

    Ah ok. See, I was wrong. Sorry...
    And yeah, Chillaa, you're right. Looking now I actually don't see how I actually missed that, besides that in these pics in a couple areas there seems to be a reddish tone. If you don't mind me asking, how do you know it's one? Because I know palominos can be quite dark

    Because of his produce. A palomino horse is carrying two red alleles, so they are "ee". He has produced offspring that are homozygous black - "EE". Since if he were palomino he could only pass on "e", he has to be black based.
