My palomino filly is turning black!?

Lol, I know, another color thread from me.


And I know that palominos can be really dark. But my foal is "black" underneath her foal coat.

Mama is a flaxen chestnut and daddy is a palomino.

All horses have black skin. Doesn't mean her coat's going to turn black.

It's a very normal part of the shedding process. Remember, a foal's first shed will usually be their darkest point. Here is an example that resembles your baby:

It's not skin, it's her new coat. First I thought it was sun damage, but as you can se on her neck she was clipped there when she was born, and the coat that is growing out is dark.

Thank you! I was told that she is a chestnut if she's going dark now. Not that it matters what color she is.

Definitely not a chestnut, definitely a pally. And still gorgeous!

She's a palomino. I had a palomino filly that shed out black the first time she shed, and she ended up an "Isabella" at maturity. It's normal for them to shed dark.

Palomino foals can shed out super, super dark.

Lacy's Photos <<< some really good pictures of exactly that on that link.

IMO its sooty making your filly shed that dark. Your mare has it and it wouldn't be a surprise for the filly to have it as well.
