I have a funny coloured palomino at home, but I'd say he's champaign. Who cares what colour he is - he's flipping gorgeous! What is he bred for?

Just looks palomino to me. I believe Champagne would have pinkish skin (not the same pink as a cremello), this horse's skin looks to dark. So just palomino!

That horse is gorgeous by the way! I think that he is a champagne, too.

Looks like a champagne to me. Def. not a cremello as they have pinky cream faces, not black ;)

What color were his parents?

I personally don't think I agree with champagne. For champagne to lighten him that much, he should not have such a dark face - the dark muzzle should be a very faded grey if not pink skinned.

Also, the champagne gene isn't any more likely to turn him pure "white" then the palomino gene. Gold champagnes horses typically look exactly light palominos, allbeit a shade lighter then the original base color with lighter skin (often pink) and amber eyes that were blue at birth.

I just see a very pale palomino.

Actually i researched a bit more.. and i agree with MacabreMikolaj, i read that "light palomino. This shade is at the lighter end of the color range for a Palomino horse, but as the eyes and skin are dark, the horse is not a cremello."

So, i agree, the horse is a light palomino
