Odd, it was my understanding that Silver ALWAYS expresses on black, but never red.

I agree that she doesn't look silver.

Also there are only a couple of silver AQHA horses if I remember rightly.

Well, IMO I think that the foal is a dunalino. If the sire's sire was a palomino, I'd be willing to bet that he is a smokey black and not just a regular black. Her color does have a golden hue to it, so I don't really think she's a red dun. I don't think she's a silver, either, being as they are rare in AQHA. So, my vote is for dunalino.

I must say the dam is a little funky looking. The sire and the foal are cute though!

I don't see a dorsal stripe on the foal, or would that come later as the foal sheds?

The dam obviously gave her the dun gene. The sire is a smoky black (pretty likely since his sire is a palomino) and he must have given her the cream gene.

She looks like a classic dunalino to me, and silver is rare - especially in Quarter Horses.

Occum's Razor, guys ; )

Her dam's side is full of buckskins, duns, and 'buckskin duns,' although I don't trust registries when it comes to those colors.

I would say that she is simply a Pali with some heavy sooty coloring on her legs. I would guesstimate Dunalino, but I see no evidence of the Dun gene past her funky leg markings; no dorsal stripe, no markings of any kind anywhere on her head or shoulders, or even upper legs (where you usually see barring).

I really like her Sire, he's a looker.
