What is cremello?

I'm looking at a registered APHA gelding, 14.3hh, 7 yo. He seems relatively decent. Very broke. I'm looking for a trail horse and also small horse large pony for my son.

At any rate, this guy is cremello. So what is it? A very pale palomino? He seems to be a subtle cream color but I can see a distinct blaze.

Here are some pics.... (excuse the flies. Not my pics.)

I think creamello is basically a colour of horse with pink skin and white hair, often with blue eyes... LOL I think its actually alot more complicated then that but that roughly what creamello is.

Yes, its what equin_fanatic99 says. Cremello is a very light cream color of the horse, it has white mane and tail just like a palomino would, they have blue eyes and pink skin!

Better get a lot of sun block for that boy : ) He sure is beautiful.

Do they have more care concerns then? IE: sunburn? Sensitive skin? I'm not terribly concerned, just always figured more information I can get the better!!

If you take your regular chestnut and give it a cream gene, you'd get a palomino. If you gave it two cream genes you'd get a cremello. So it's kind of like an extra diluted palomino. FYI- If you had bay and gave it a cream gene you'd get a buckskin. If you gave it two you'd get a perlino. It's a bit more complicated then that', but that's the general idea.

I have heard that horses with pink or light colored skin are prone to melanoma (?) and sunburn.

Sun block is a must! Any horse with pink skin gets sunburn much more easy. He is a pretty boy though!!

I've also heard but don't have proof that light colored horses suffer from fly's bothering them more. When I heard that it explained to me why Toby is always covered in flies while my other horses are not. And looking at this Cremello's picture, I was not surprised to see him covered in flies too. :(
