    All palominos have a certain number of black and/or red hairs in their manes and tails. Black and red hairs are considered faults in the palomino breed, but they are always there! She looks like a palomino to me, but do Foxtrotters carry the "Silver" Gene (as Rocky Mountains and Shetlands, etc do)? This could also be the culprit. It's more rare, but it's out there. The University of California Davis can do the test for Cream for 25 or 50 dollars....jus sayin.[/QUOTE]

    Highly doubt she's silver and you couldn't see it anyways cause she is red based. She looks like a typical sooty palomino to me.
