Palomino.

A perlino (or cremello, or smokey cream) will ALWAYS have pink skin. Your horse has black skin. That makes her palomino.

I think you mean cremello since that is the double dilute version of palomino. Perlino is on a bay base and that mane would be darker. But in either case I don't think this horse I'd double dilute because the skin around the nose is not pink and the eyes are not the blue usually seen on them.

This horse may be palomino but I really suspect its going grey. Were any of the parents Grey?

I don't think she's greying. We had a Pali exactly that shade, and he had a lot of "grey" on his face when he was in his summer coat. It was just his dark skin showing through the shorter cream hairs. He was 12, so there was NO chance of him greying out, although an insane number of people thought he was grey in the winter because he went white. He was definitely palomino because on darkening feeds, in summer, he went apricot with copious sooty marks.

We currently have a buckskin that for the past year or so has been roughly that shade of cream, just with the black points that make her bucky and not pali. She's also got the same "greyish" areas on her face, in her summer coat, but can't be greying because her sire was buckskin and her dam was black. I honestly think it's just the dark skin showing through.

I've also seen a palomino going grey look just like this one as well. Knew it was grey for sure because the dam was homozygous for grey and the horse had been much more golden when it was a yearling. I think this is one of those color stages that we just won't know until there is parental color verification - neither parent is grey then this horse obviously isn't.

Palomino.

A double cream dilute (cremello, perlino, and smoky black) will always have pink skin and blue eyes.

I don't think grey in this case. As a 4 year old, I would expect the coat to have darkened a bit. Greys tend to go darker before they start to lighten. This is a good case:

I believe a smokey cream is the black verison of the double dilutes smokey black carries one copy right?
