Sadly a lot of cremelos and perlinos tend to be wonky in their conformation. Most breeders I wont even look at a cremello because of that. There are good looking ones out there, but most have been bred by color breeders, and they took color over conformation. There is a QH cremello stud in my area that has amazing conformation, but he's the only one I have seen that looks that good lol.

He is tested perlino. Ee Aa CRCR
His name is Don Divo, and they call him Perlino, however I'm fairly sure he's NOT perlino. I'm pretty sure he's Pearl + Cream on bay.

He IS perlino, HOWEVER he is also Dun. So he's Perlino Dun.

And a donkey XD
Looks perlino, but isn't lol.

It sounds like you're ordering coffee...


Have to say the chart of the foal colours is so helpful! Love the Cremello foal!!!

From what I've been told, the best way to visually define a Perlino (without DNA testing) is that it will be creme colored, pink skin, blue eyes, but with a "coffee stained" mane, tail, and sometimes legs (red or brown tinted). Where as a cremello has the same base coat, but without the colored points.

Don Divo PM is a pearl carrier. I'm actually betting he's double pearl, as he has brown eyes "Unlike the double cream dilute and the Pearl-cream pseudo dilute the double Pearl dilute typically has dark tan eyes". Yeguada Herrera, the owning farm, has him listed as pearl creme, but as there really isn't a known common color name for that, they just call him perlino, I've not seen the DNA testing on this horse, but color testing on Andalusians is practically the norm these days, so he probably has results somewhere.

He's definitely not a double cream dilute; his eyes are light brown and not blue or green. My understanding is pearl + cream is almost indistinguishable from double cream without genetic testing and would also have blue or green eyes. I'd guess he's actually double pearl. If not pearl, then maybe a classic champagne, but he looks a little too light for that.

ETA- Pictures weren't loading for me, so I didn't realize Souther Grace had already found a close up of his head, but he's a pretty boy so what's the harm in one more pic?

I don't know why some of my pictures won't post! I will try again with another.
