Question Would you consider Kody a palomino?

This is my mom's little horse Kody, who we bought a couple years ago. He is old and sweet. We dont know much about him or his history or even his breed really. Nothing is more than a guess.
I have always just called him a palomino, he is bright blonde all over. The pictures I am posting are a terrible representation of how his coat usually looks. They were taken in the one cold winter month here in AZ, so he is more fluffy and dull than his usual coat (when he sheds out).

Anyways- would you call this a palomino?

I think he's a red dun, but couldn't be sure unless I saw a dorsal stripe. My red dun colt looked very similar to him, but lighter and I often had people telling me "He's a pretty pally" lol

Yeah, he has no dorsal stripe.
My Appy mare is a red dun, and her coat is much darker than his which is why I have a hard time saying that he is "red" at all, but I guess there are quite a few shades of each color.

Sorrel/chestnut. Definitely not a pally.

I'd say he's sorrel/chestnut. Just a lighter shade. :)
