    Champagne or a light Pally. Not a cremello at all. They have pink skin and blue eyes...

    With black skin, it's impossible for him to be cremello, perlino, smoky cream, OR champagne. They all have pink skin.


    Black skin and brown eyes = Palomino or dirty gray

    Those are the only possibilities.

    What do you mean "people don't like it"? Even if someone doesn't like a color, it doesn't change what color the horse is. With no pink skin and no blue eyes, he cannot possibly be a cremello. I agree with you that he's probably a palomino, but where did you get roan from? Roans always have heads and legs that are significantly darker than the rest of their body.

    Um, no. Cremellos ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have pink skin and blue eyes. If a horse doesn't have those two things, there is no way they're cremello.

    Champagnes have pink skin. It's just covered in freckles so it isn't as bright as the pink skin of a cremello or perlino or smoky cream. It usually looks something like this when found on a chestnut base coat: http://www.horse-genetics.com/images/Champagne-Cool-head.jpg

    Yep, you're right. The reason the pink skin on a champagne horse looks different than the pink skin on a cremello is because it's covered in tiny freckles. It's still pink, though : ]

    Thanks CloudMystique. I was almost positive champagnes had pink skin, but it's the one color I'm extremely unfamilier with. I had glanced at the Champagne Registry page, and naturally couldn't seem to find it and now when I look again, I see it was right in front of me.

    The usual way the Champagne gene affects a red (chestnut/sorrel) based horse is to create a golden body color with a flaxen, or near-white, mane & tail. This horse is usually registered as a Palomino, even though the skin is some shade of pink with freckles, not the normal dark skin of the Palomino. The term "mottled", under skin color, may allow for this in the PHBA registry (Palomino Horse Breeders of America.)

    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 : ]

    I agree palomino especially knowing his dam and sire's color. Also champagnes have malted skin.
