First picture is her wet... Icelandic Mare..
When she is dry she is a lighter palomino color with a smokey liver undercoat.
Chocolate Palomino or palomino with sootyfactor? I am confused.. thank you in advance..

Are you sure she's a Palomino? She looks more like a chestnut to me. But I'm not really a color guru.

It kind of looks like she has amber colored eyes, but I can't tell very well with the pics....

I agree with tempest. I don't think this mare is palomino at all. She looks chestnut to me.

OP, what makes you think she's palomino?

Palomino w/ sooty is what makes chocolate palomino. But I also question if this horse is palomino.

I thought so, but I wasn't sure. Lol. My brain kept going "Wait, aren't those the same thing?" O.o

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't Icelandics have some funky color genes that don't show up in stock breeds like silver?

She doesn't look very palomino-y to me either, even if she was carrying sooty.

That being said, she's gorgeous, whatever her color might be.

Yes, Icelandics are known for carrying silver.

Maybe it's just my eyes, but it looks like something is making the color....I don't know, flat? I wouldn't say pali, but I think something's going on there. Doesn't look like a plain old chestnut.

I don't know much about what colors Icelandics can be...

This horse is a sable ivory/cream champagne (aka brown with champagne and one cream dilution). She looks vaguely maybe something weird like this is going on with this little girlie.
