this is my new swedish warmblood bradley or his show name Alchemy i was told he is a palomino

What colour are his eyes? Does he have molted (spots) on his skin around his eyes, muzzle, and genitals? I'm thinking either pearl or champagne. Do you have any knowledge on what colour his parents were?

Not thinking palomino. Is he clipped in this picture?

Looks sooty palomino to me.

i think he is clipped cause this photo was taken in florida i dont know what you mean by spots he has some brown on his face

Wow, he s beautiful.

I would say possibly a silver champagne or peal horse. Cremellos almost always have blue eyes with the pink skin.

The lighting in both pictures makes it really hard to judge - ideally, the light should be overcast, about 2pm in the afternoon on a slightly cloudy day is the absolute best. If you can't swing that, outside in natural light with the sun behind the photographer rather than behind the horse is always going to be next best.

They're referring to "freckling" that's characteristic of the champagne gene. Here's an example I grabbed from a Google image search:

Are pearl and/or champagne known to be present in Swedish Warmbloods?
