There is a website where you can pick what you want him tested for. Someone else can give you the link as i'm not sure. But what you do is pull a few hairs out and make sure the follicles are attached. And you send it in and they will send you back some papers and telling you how he tested.

I'm betting he's a palomino too. We also own his half sister who just about the exact same color and she is registered as a palomino. I'll see if I can find a pic of his sister.

Definitely looks palomino to me! Maybe they just wanted to advertise the stallion as more rare color to get more mares to breed and such? Not that us people breeding wouldn't be able to tell he isn't a perlino anyway ;)

They had always planned to geld him before they sold him is what they told us, as he isn't the best coformed guy there ever was. :)
Thanks for all the great feedback!

what colour are his parents?

I'm not sure, I'm going to email the breeder and ask.

Definately not a perlino, yes they have pink skin and blue eyes (though the blue eyes can be hazely vs clear blue)
