Congrats on the foal.. I can't really see him in that picture-- do you have any more?

A palomino is a sorrel/chestnut with 1 cream gene.. Palomino bred with sorrel is a 50-50% chance on gettin palomino.. *random palo infooo*

Do you have a closer picture? Its hard to tell with certainty in that pic. The baby can only be two colors sorrel or palomino.

Horses don't just change colors. He appears sorrel to me and will stay whichever color he was born. There are varying shades of sorrel though so it'll be interesting to see after he sheds.

A better picture would be nice. It can be difficult to tell sometimes on chestnut or palomino foals. I know Chiilaa has a series of photos of a filly that is bright red, but sheds out to be a very gold palomino.

In contrast, the horse I ride was born a peachy, palomino/red dun like colour, and shed out chestnut. Though we knew she was chestnut as both parents were bay.

Definitely need a close pic of baby Is hard to say with certainty from that pic.As said you had chance of a sorrel or palomino baby. Baby does look pretty light in that picture.Palomino foals can be born a peachy/reddish color but then loose that red hue & do shed out golden

This foal looks to be very light and an odd shade for a chestnut. I am betting he is a palomino.

This foal is a dark palomino and the shade is similar to your colt-->Dallas - Horse Pictures
