What do you make of this guys color?

Barrel Horse World

They say he is a chocolate palomino, but the shade looks 'odd' to me. Sire is a chestnut. Not sure about the dam, but she is out of a palomino sire and chestnut dam (so I guess she is a palomino). I guess I don't see how he can be anything except a palomino based on his pedigree... but he is sure a strange shade.

well, that horse looks grey to me .. ;) or some sort of sooty shade, maybe a grulla .. I thought the choco palis still had the lighter manes.. oh .. and he is a nice looking horse regardless of his color !

Id say he is indeed palomino. With a major sooty gene at play. Very cool coloring on this guy.

Stevenson, one parent must be grey. Sire is a palomino and dam is chestnut so grey is not possible. But i see where you get that from.

I would have guessed classic champagne from that one photo, but not a possibility from two red horses!
