Don't know about her color, but she sure is a cutie!

I only say palomino so adimently because its the only possibility in my mind that makes sense.

I also don't think she's champagne because there is no champagne on either side of her lines. I also owned both mare and stallion. The mare had no mottling whatsoever and the stud's mottling was varnish related. This fillies full sibiling was a brown filly who looked nothing like this filly in color or conformation.

I'm really not worried about this fillies coloring all that much, but its been making me wonder as to why she has SO much pink skin with minimal mottling. I may just have to see how she looks when I clip her!

I second this.

I honestly am at a loss with most mini patterns and colors unless they're pretty obvious, so I'm just going to lurk and see if anyone else has any ideas. Seeing a clipped picture would probably helpful. Testing would be too, but it would get kind of spendy to do several tests just for curiosity's sake.

I do have two HORRIBLE pictures of her clipped (a month after maybe?). And by horrible I mean her condition. Which has changed a lot, and I am grateful for it.

I'd rather that nobody commented on her condition or grooming. I have worked long and hard to get her up to weight and acting like a horse. This filly until a month or two ago had never played. Feeding her good just caused her to blossom.

I also had to deal with skin issues because I clipped her too early. Her skin became flaky and dirt would become matted into her skin. I had to scrub her hard during her many baths just to get it out. So, all of that dark on her neck is actually dirt. Not black pigmentation.

I just wanted to get that out before people started bashing me about the condition in these pictures. We've come a long way.

As for the halter, it was too big for her but I didn't want to put a blocky halter on her that would hide her head. She had a very petite head that I wanted to show off.

She is an odd critter that's for sure. Almost looks like a grey to me, but that pink skin... -shrugs- well I'm totally confused!

Like I posted in the other thread, you can't judge a horse's color by a shaved coat.

Unfortunately Tremor, the only way to pin down exactly what your girl is is to have her tested. Everything else is just speculation as she is so light.

Agreed with the above, with one point of disagreement. Light horses often don't change very much. I had a little grey that just stayed the same colour when you clipped him, and Mum has a pally that stays exactly the same. JME of course, and it's only the two I quoted plus a few other greys. Greys just don't change when you clip them.

ooo speculation time. Maybe she was born something like a light pali and then greyed out? That would explain being born darker than she's matured, at least...

EDIT; that above theory is solely based on the fact that the sire looks a bit greyish... but of course if he's black based and spotted (which he obviously is) that might just be LP roaning.

She has pink skin EVERYWHERE. Eyes, mouth/nose, genitalia, etc. She has white hooves as well. She does however have appy spots and some black spots on her mouth and genitals.

Dam (Silver Smokey Black?):


Sire (Silver Black Appaloosa):


Young:



Winter:



Summer:



My filly's sire, has pinto background in him but has never thrown a pinto foal.

Is my filly's expansive pink skin caused by markings and is her eye related to being a pinto or an appaloosa?

I'm hoping that in next May/June when I clip her that I'll be able to see markings galore. I highly doubt it though.

For those people who don't know anything about color, SHE IS NOT A CREMELLO OR PERLINO. She is a palomino.

Thanks.
I find this funny your in the color and genetics forum asking what color your horse is yet you have this comment....LMAO

Well, you know how people are when they see a whitish horse with a blue eye. They yell double dilute when it isn't possible. The only thing possible genetically is the palomino.

I'm more interested in why she has pink skin EVERYWHERE.
