Why is he a cremello?

Why is this little guy a cremello? Just trying to understand the whole palomino/cremello/perlino coloring.

Also, if he came from a palomino sire and a bay dam does this mean they each gave him a creme gene?

He isn't cremello. Not with a bay dam and palomino sire. You have to have two creams, the foal only has one. He is a palomino.

In order to get a cremello or perlino, the sire and dam MUST carry at least one copy of the cream gene. Cremello and perlino are double dilutes. Unless the dam is really a "smokey black" the foal is palomino, not cremello.

Plus, cremellos are ALWAYS born with BLUE eyes. Your foals eyes are dark.

Good to know. I honestly wasn't sure. The whole color thing is confusing to me.

If the dam had cream she would be a buckskin not a bay. Cream only "hides" one copy on black. Anything else it shows on.

This page actually has some really good information to it. You may want to read through it. It gets easier to understand, just have to research it.

Also agree that the baby is palomino. Could still be buckskin, but can't see the mane or tail to check that, pretty sure he is pally tho. And adorable.

Sometimes the light palominos are born almost white. When Casper was born he looked just like a cremello, and I was like what the heck? Obviously momma isn't cream...

Of course Casper is a leopard, but because he is a palomino, his base "white" is actually a light palomino cream color...

At birth...


At age 8...
