Here are 2 more pics of the filly....

And the next 2 are of the colt from last year, he is registered palomino overo (by dna test) but has obviously lost the palomino, will he stay the way he is now?

The sire is DNA tested as a red roan overo sabino and she said dam is definitely cremello (her dam was palomino and sire was buckskin)
Both foals from same 2 parents.

I would say definite pali on the filly. Some of them are born darker than others and you can never really tell what shade they'll be until they shed out a couple of times.

As for the colt, there's no way to tell for certain. Sometimes pali's are so pale they look cremello and other times they are so dark that they look brown or black. I would say that he won't decide on his standard color until he's a couple of years old. Even then, sometimes they continue to change shade throughout their lives, depending on season and nutrition.

Ditto what smrobs said.

I also want to add for clairty sakes on the double dilutes that breeding a buckskin to a palomino (for the double dilute portion, not getting into the single cream or no cream) you still have a chance (if everything is heterozygous) at smoky cream and perlino in addition to cremello. It can be extremely hard to tell the double dilutes apart without having them tested.

Then your options would be to throw a buckskin in that mix
