Just look like a faded black (tobiano) and a palomino to me. Funny-looking foal.

I would say black tobiano and palomino :) just like the poster above. They're both CUTE!!

I'm confused, you're asking what color they are but you state their colors in the OP? If you already know what color they are, then what, exactly, are you asking?

I wanted to know the black and whites 'tobiano' thing because I want to put themin the foal colour calculator and the palomino I wasnt 100% sure if he because of his socks needed a white name (like tobiano sorry not sure what the appropriate name would be)

Bubba- Its an alpaca :P

Possible colors will depend on agouti status and zygosity, but you've got at least a 50% chance of tobiano, on a base color of black, sorrel, bay, smoky black, buckskin, or palomino. Or brown, I suppose, but doubt. 50% chance of cream or no cream.

Thanks :) The foal will be loved no matter what of course but I was just curious, how do you determine agouti staus and zygosity?

Genetic testing only. Although the mare is definitely agouti-negative, so it's all down to the stud. What color were their parents? That can narrow it down.

The palomino's father was palomino as for the mare we have no idea, the palomino has sired foals before and we saw 2 that we also palomino. When the mare was with us she had one brown foal. (if that helps)
