Well, that narrows things down a bit : ]
He can only be bay, chestnut, black, buckskin, palomino, or smoky black. It's quite obvious that he isn't any of those but palomino.
It's genetically impossible for him to be any type of double dilute (cremello, perlino, or smoky cream) because his parents only have one cream gene between the two of them.
It's also genetically impossible for him to be gray because gray is a dominant gene so ALL gray horses must have at least one gray parent.
It's genetically impossible for him to be champagne (UNLESS his dam was actually a champagne who was registered as a palomino)... but he still can't be one because his skin is black.
Good luck with him, anyway. He's really cute : ]
