First up...the 2nd half of my first horse. I bought a nearly solid black TWH mare shortly after my 21st birthday, she was already bred at the time. This guy was the reason I became interested in color genetics. We were told the stallion she was bred to was palomino..heck, I even rode him! But I was clueless. I was hoping for a buckskin filly...or a filly of any color to be honest.
I ended up with what I thought was an orangey chestnut colt with blue eyes..ahaha. Then the pink skin never went away...
As a 2 year old
All grown up
He was tested as no creme, and with the pink skin and freckles, and the eyes that went from ice blue to green to amber--pretty certain he was champagne. We did let the owner of the stallion know, and he thanked us and was able to get his boy's color changed with the registry.
