The black on her face is probably her skin. My sabino paint has black and pink skin. Plus she is pally so she is supposed to have dark skin. Make sure you put lots of sunblock on that white face. Also if the skin around the eyes is pink might think about tattooing the eyes later to prevent eye disease and cancers later in life. Luckily mine has natural eyeliner =D. Very cute baby congratulations!!!!!!

Yep the black is just her skin. All palominos have black skin while the skin under white markings are pink. It would be good if you could get some clearer pictures of her legs and back.

What Birdgertrot said. All palominos have black skin and all white markings have pink skin. You're just seeing the edge of her palomino black skin through the white. The only way that wouldn't apply is if champagne was involved - champagne on chestnut turns a horse palomino colored with pinkish skin.

Based on the photos, dunalino is a very good chance. I can see stripping on her knees before the white starts and she seems to have the classic fading dorsel of a dunalino. The problem with dunalino is the muted dun can mimic countershading. You'd need a test to know for sure but I'd be fairly confident calling her a dunalino.

Here is my dunalino, Dusty. He has leg stripes, shoulder bars, face mask, ear tips, dorsal stripe, darker ended tail, and sometimes appears to have face cobwebbing, but I'm pretty sure it's just how is hair grows:)

First 3 pics are unbleached, last is with sun bleaching.

I honestly can't tell from those pictures, I don't see striping on her knees, I see light reflecting. (normally stripes don't affect the knees, they are just darker with the stripes spiderwebbing around the top after that.

Also, see how his face is darker? That might be what (was it Spotted?) meant by "face being black". It won't be BLACK, but it will certainly be very dark:)

Double post!!


Also forgot that your filly has a HUGE blaze so never mind about looking for a dark face XD

I think she might be it, but babies coats often mimic dun.

Ok is this a dun stripe? I just got her today and it does seem like she has a faint stripe. What do you guys think now?

She actually has more of a bald face than a "huge blaze".

I know dunalino's can have really faint dorsals...but I'm not seeing much yet that's convincing me she's dun. Any leg pictures?

She certainly does not look like a dun in those photos but that doesn't necessarily mean she isn't one.
Photos of the sire & dam would be handy. I have a hard time picturing a dunalino as the result of a dunskin & black & white. Not saying that there isn't a chance that dam had a red gene in there and happened to pass it on to the foal, which is completely possible, but I would have expected something darker in color.

from what I understand about colors it doesnt matter if her dam is black and white because she can pick the dun gene up from the sire and as far as the color calculater says it is possible. If she's not a dunalino then she certainly is a palomino neither of which are "dark" so she got the cream gene from the sire it is very possible she got the dun gene too.

I don't really care what her color is "technically" this is purely out of curiousity and because I would like to change her registered color to what she really is which we can all agree is not a red dun
