Palomino turning dark... sooty? PICTURES

So I have a 2 year old filly, She was born October 4th, 2011. I bought her at the end of December 2013, so I've had her 3 months now. I named her Scarlet. When I first got her she was really blonde, but now she is turning darker and darker by the day as she sheds. Her mother is a buckskin and I was told that her father was a palomino roan, but they could have been lying.. Im guessing once she sheds completely she is going to be a sooty palomino, what do yall think?

Yeah, she is definitely showing her sooty gene.

Palomino's are all sorts of fun. They keep you guessing season after season about what shade they are going to turn. I know lots of palomino's that are very pale/golden in the winter, and then BOOM, come spring shedding season, they are completely different.

Look up Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet (AQHA) He is a beautiful palomino that has an incredibly strong sooty gene. *sigh*

Hmm. I wonder if daddy was really a grey. The back end shot looks suspicious too me that she could be greying, but I suppose roan is a possibility and that she is sooty.

Might just be the photos... But the shot from behind (in particular) she appears to have significant hair loss/balding?!? If so thin hair and dark skin might create the impression of darker areas. Hopefully it is just the photo. If it is hair loss I would be talking to a vet.

You are right. If you look at all the recent pictutes...it looks like she is balding. Topline picture shows it too. The backend shot shows it really well.

OP, is there hair in these dark spots? Or it is skin?

Elizabeth, that's him. Isn't he stunning?

I was also curious about the "roan" sire actually being gray and this filly is graying.

That's what I see, this horse isn't showing a sooty gene in my opinion, she is losing her hair, too much hair not just the normal spring shedding. My friends horse did this. Turned out he had some sort of fungal infection. She had to treat in with a topical fungicide as well as betadine bathes.
