Wow, and refusing to accept a horse if they have a darker patch larger than 4 cm? Bend Or spots are so common on palis, that limits their gene pool significantly. Also, grease spots can develop later on in life so what do they do if a horse they registered 2 years ago suddenly develops a huge grease spot on their hip/shoulder/neck? Revoke it's registration?

Chiilaa, I mean no offense by this, but some of the Aussie color ideas really are screwy LOL.

My favorite color.... they can range in shade from light isabella, to the darker smutty palomino.

As long as your horse is genetically palomino, you SHOULD be able to register him/her. Sometimes chocolate taffy/silver dapple horses can appear a smutty/chocolate palomino in colour but their parent's colours would distinguish this from a dark palomino. I have a palomino that is an 'ideal' palomino according to the registry, as he is deep, rich gold with a white mane and tail in summer, but the society nearly rejected him in his winter coat as he goes so pale, like a grey, they didn't think he was 'palomino enough' (or words to that effect). His summer coat saved him. But your horse is definitely a pally, no matter what colour he sheds to. It would be interesting to see pics of him when he has shed, to see what colour he goes.

You should, I agree. That is one of the things I hate most about registries - they are just stupidly backwards.

It isn't just you guys..that's also the North American (USA and Canada) criteria for Palomino (the minted gold coin stuff). So see? You are not alone..
