I get all the "red" chestnuts... I sure wouldn't mind having a few of these guys kicking around! He is uber cool. :)

Thats pretty! Is that what they call Wheat sorrel/chestnut? Or is it just to certain breeds like the haflinger?

I call that a... palomino? Hey, I've got one of those! But I don't think he even knows what color he's supposed to be other than "fluff ball" lol

If he is a purebred Arabian, he can't possibly be palomino.

Okay.. why cant he be Pali and purebred Arab?

jillybean19 01-05-2013 03:27 AM

Pali doesn't run in Arab genetics. There are no dilute genes in purebred Arabs.

jillybean19 01-05-2013 03:29 AM

Are you positive he's pure? I'm currently drooling over a buckskin Arab.... That beautiful color somehow came out in the 1/64 of that horse that isn't pure Arab. If this horse is pure, what color is this? I've never seen it.

stevenson 01-05-2013 03:31 AM

Interesting. Never heard that before. But then again, I have never discussed or read so much about colors and dilute genes as on this forum.

jillybean19 01-05-2013 03:37 AM

Arabians are about as pure as it gets so they don't have a lot of colors mixed up in them. From what I understand, you get pure Arabs in chestnut, black, bay, and grey. That's about it. There are a few other things that can do funny stuff to a coat as well, like sabino. But I'm not well informed on those.

I don't see where anyone said he was a purebred... Could be partbred, some horses do come out looking 99% one breed when they're a cross... It couls also be he's 99% Arab and 1% something else, who knows?
