    Personally, I just see chestnut, especially in that second picture. I think the third one only looks "off" because of the angle and lighting. Her eyes don't strike me as actually amber either, just a trick of the lighting going through her cornea and skewing the iris color.

    Yes Icelandics carry the silver gene, she does have a amber brown eye color. Her papers say Black with golden highlights. Just spoke to a man that thought that palomino with sooty factor best described her color...she is very light with her winter coat right now. She has some Liver chestnut under coat... I really have no Idea??? If you look at my horse pictures you can view more pictures of her....

    Well, she still looks red-based, in which case silver is irrelevant because silver does not act on red. Do you happen to have any idea about her parents' colors?

    OP, what makes you think she's palomino?

    She is not chestnut but do see see how that 2nd picture could look that way the other pictures of her in my horse photos show her "color" better. Blondish brown with brownish liver under her mane and tail.. some black in her tail..

    That pic of her looks like she has a dorsal stripe. Or am I seeing counter shading? It looks rather well defined...

    It is entirely possible she is a chestnut with sooty. Especially with the shades of red she appears to change between.

    I ask about her parents because it would narrow down our possibilities and there might be a chance it might not even be genetically possible for her to be palomino.

    Your description still sounds chestnut. I tried to see our photos but my tablet won't bring them up for me. Would o care to add them to this thread?

    She looks chestnut to me. If she was palomino, I would expect the mane and tail to have a far more cream tone to them - even with sooty, they don't become so red, they tend to just look dirty.

    I did some research... because a lot of icy's are named for their color.. I seems that her fathers name means snow storm in icelandic ( we were thinking silver) Ugla her name means Snowy Owl.. that is all I know she was born in Iceland. I do not see red in her at all? But like I said that one picture does have some red in it..
