Well definitely double dilute cream, either Smoky Cream (black with 2 cream genes) or more likely Perlino like you say (bay with 2 cream genes)
But definitely super-stinkin'-Cute!!

He appears to be cremello, just a guess though since I'm not very well informed about this stuff

I'm thinking he is smokey cream. But the only way to know for sure is to test him.

What are the sire's and dam's parent's colouring? That would give you a closer guess.

The only way to tell for sure is testing, as CLaPorte432 suggested.

He looks perlino, but it's hard to tell. Def a double dilute of some sort. But unless you plan to breed him I don guess it matters.

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

OP stated sire is a buckskin and dam is similar in appearance to the colt...


I'm in the perlino or smokey cream camp.

I think they were saying the sires sire and dam, and The dams sire and dam. Not the sire and dam themselves.

Read the OP. I read it as parents of the colt in question. Not the grandsire(s) and granddam(s).
