Could a Cremello turn into a Palomino?
 
Hehe, my dad has a question. Could a cremello turn into a palomino? He says our Cremello gelding is turning darker in color and looks almost as if he is turning a palomino color. Just a random question, since his dam was a palomino.

Do you know what his sire is?

Buckskin! Our gelding also has a brother, who is a Palomino.

As I said above, his sire was a Buckskin, dam was a Palomino. And, a photo of him? We just went to see him today and I didn't get any good photos of him, since he just shed his winter coat.
But, here are the only photos I got.

The eyes give it away. No way he's a palomino. Those eyes are double dilute blue. Which would make him a cremello or a perlino. Since he doesn't have the "darker" points, he has to be a cremello.

ETA- The pink skin is a giveaway, too.

Just need the photo. depends on if he was always a palamino and you just didn't know it. No he can't change color either he has one cream gene (palamino) or 2 creme genes ( cremello)

Drafty is right!

He definitely has two copies of the cream gene, so like the others said there is no way he could be a palomino.

Random thought - Since his sire is a Buckskin and dam is a Pally there is a possibility [depending on the sires genes] that your boy may be a Smoky Cream. It could just be me but from his knees down he looks darker but not like the 'points' on a Perlino. Or it could be mud/dirt/my wild imagination. =]

I told my dad this but he still thinks he could turn to a palomino. *eye twitch*

Ah, you can't tell him anything. Anyways, thank you!
