What color is this horse?

I know, you have probably seen this title a zillion times before, but Without saying anything else, what color do you think this horse is? I just need second opinions, pretty much to prove someone else wrong- or to say that she was right, but I know I'm right

I don't need explanation on color genetics, just post what you think the color is... Sorry if the lighting is throwing you off, this seems to be her excuse.

I see a faint "blaze" on it's face and otherwise the skin looks dark. I'm thinking it's a grey. If it's a horse over 10 I would def think it's a very faded grey as they continue fading with age. My friend has a grey paint that used to have prominent grey spots but now he looks pure white, you can barely see his spots when he is wet.

Grey without any doubt or hesitation.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

The other girl seems convinced that he's a cremello, and blames it on Quote; "Its a cremello. The way the light shines, it might look like its another breed."

Someone needs to learn her that cremello's have pink skin.

"Palomino's are a type of cremello" Ack. Statements like that make me want to gag. I could maybe understand cremello is a type of palomino, since 1 cream is palomino and cremello is 2...but it's still wrong. That's like saying chestnut is a type of bay.

And how does the light change her breed? <_<

And I agree, Tanner, telling that person that her horse is actually grey and not cremello could have been very offensive! The NERVE of you! LOL

You should also tell her that Cremello is not a breed. =P

Agree on grey with a blaze. You can also look at the eyes.

I sent her a message, as she suggested, and I said "Cremellos have pink skin. Your horse has dark skin- except for the spot where there's a white marking"

They replied "... Its nose is pink. The lighting makes it look different."
Ugh, again with the lighting excuse!

I am not going to reply back, because I do not want to get into it with her(or get a board warning for being stubborn- and right), because I KNOW I am right, not just in an arrogant know-it-all way, but because that horse is no way in hell a cremello. I should've told her that cremellos have pink skin and BLUE frickin eyes and that horse is does not have either of those. By the way, I hope she sees this, in an evil-ish way >=D

Oh, I know what I said, pointing out that hers was way off was rude indeed, but I think it is her being the more ignorant out of the two of us. Before I posted that, I was contemplating whether to post it or not:)

Anyone else care to share their opinion?

To add on to above post;

I asked some of my other friends on a horse riders thread of that forum(some of them may be looking at this ) and every one of them said grey. To be exact, 5 people... and counting ;)

Just 'cause it makes me feel good.

Okay, now I'm done swimming in my right-ness and being arrogant.
