I'm not questioning that though I did the first few days. His skin was light and not dark, eyes green. Skin has darkened but isn't that dark charcoal color of his dad, eyes are still green. Every pali I have seen is consistent with their coloring over their entire body aside from dappling except for the one sooty pali that I was sent pics of that had a dark back end and very med toned golden front end to see if he compared. Very red/orange toned on the bottom(legs, under belly) and cream literally no red tone at all to the top ((back and sides). You can see it somewhat in the last pics but now that his foal coat is gone it is really pronounced. Are there perhaps pics here of a pali that is light on top with dark legs and face that I could see? I've poked through several of the pali threads and haven't come across anything remotely like him. It may well be as an earlier poster said that once he sheds the winter coat he will get this year he will be more normal or uniform darker or lighter. Again thanks all. When I can get a pic I'll put it so you can see how he looks now as opposed to with this baby coat over everything from the shoulders back.
