    I am going to go against the majority and say that she is palomino. Some people might recall me referring to the colour that 'gleams' on the coat. In this shot, you can see a fairly good example of the goldeness of the light. If she was a chestnut, the gleam on her coat would be bronze or copper, but this is a definite golden hue.

    I would say that she is palomino with sooty. As a previous poster pointed out, sooty can cause the mane and tail to darken, as well as the coat.

    Tough one. If being a palomino makes you want to buy her, where chestnut wouldn't (of course color isn't the most important, but with so many horses out there, if you're patient you can have your cake and eat it too!) It's only $25 to test for cream.

    I am going to see her tomorrow, will find out what her winter coat looks like. I will get some more pics too. :)
    It doesn't matter to me if she is a true palomino, just was curious on everyones thoughts...she would just be a trail buddy to me.

    Yeah that is a tough one. I say a darker palomino though. She isn't dark enough to be a chestnut or a sorrel. Possibly a dun.

    I say that she is either a flaxen sorrel or a darker palomino. Though if she is a pali, I have never seen one that was so orangey colored. If she is papered and they have her registered as a pali, then that's what I would probably call her.

    She is registered as palomino, registered name is Barbie Doc Command # 2790463.
    I went and saw her today and really like her! She could stand to lose some weight, she is quite a chunk! She was well behaved and was very polite.

    What color is her dam? (Her sire doesn't carry cream, and her dam doesn't have a color attached to her on allbreedpedigree.com... if her dam is not a cream (buckskin, palomino, or smokey black) then this mare is a chestnut.

    To be honest, she looks more chestnut to me. I have seen some dark palomino's (DNA tested), but most still had a distinctive golden sheen (not all of them though... I've seen photos of a DNA tested Palomino who LOOKS black - so there are certainly exceptions). If you can't get the information on this mare's dam, and her color is important to you - do a DNA test.

    Luckily I don't reallyy care if she is a true palomino, just wanted opinions. She could be purple and I would still like her if she is a good trail riding buddy for me :)

    It doesn't matter but I think she's palomino.

    No, her color won't make her a better trail partner - that's certainly true!

    She's interesting either way too, it's not a "usual" chestnut coloring - having some bright highlights in her coat and the pale mane and tail... and she's a really "odd" palomino.

    I'm using a different monitor and she definitely looks like she has some goldish highlights on this one (guess the other was darker or something)... so it's possible she's a Palomino, provided of course he mom was a cream of some sort.
