My old pony had this color. Some may call it a chocolate palomino...but my vet called it a red roan. I think this is before people started using the term chocolate pally.

My mom and I called him a roan anyways...but yours could be either a liver chestnut or choc. pally to me.

Hes a cutie! :)

There is a HUGE difference between a chocolate palomino and a red roan.

I know... but again, this is before this term was used.

He was cute, and looked like a chocolate pally in the winter, furry with dapples. In the summer he would shed out with a deep brown almost black coat and very light blonde mane and tail :)

ok I know this one exactly! He looks exactly like my mare when she was 10 months old. Her color is called Frosty Lobo. It's a recessive gene that combines several colors. Especially bay and palomino.

It's weird but that's what it's called! But my mare darkened out when she got to about 16 mos. and lost the blonde tail. she's now a dark bay

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

Definitely not... They have either a dark brown or red mane and tail, not yellow or white.

He looks like either a chocolate palomino or a silver dapple.

What breed is he?

That's a pretty common color/mane combo in the Kentucky/Rocky Mountain horses.
