New pony--help with color??

I am looking at buying a AMHA miniature for leadline classes. I found one that is absolutely perfect except I think the papers are wrong on her color, but I can't be too sure. She is listed as white, but I think she may be just light, light palomino. Around her ears are the slightest hint of yellow, and the previous owners says she is more palomino in the winter. What do you think?

P.S. I know she is fat. She will go on a diet immediately. Don't hate me.

I'd say she is a light palomino, she almost looks light enough to be cremello, but she doesn't appear to have pink skin. Whatever she is, she is a pretty little girl. :)

Does it say what color her sire and dam were?

Please don't put any children on her. Miniatures are not bred to be ridden. Add in the fact she is extremely long backed she is not one I would put any child on.

How old is she and whats her breeding? Never heard of a "white" horse usually started grey or are a paint. Hard to tell in the pics.

She looks like she could be a light palomino. =)

I had never heard of a white horse either, so I asked to look at her registration papers which do say white. I don't have her papers yet because I haven't for sure bought her. I am going out there again tonight to make sure the child likes her. He is only doing leadline on her. She also pulls a cart :)

I will look at her papers again tonight when I go out there. I never had either. I honestly didn't believe them when they told me until I saw it for myself. I didn't even know registration allowed the color "white."
