    Often called a chocolate palomino, this coloring is actually a Silver Dapple--a true black horse with a modifying gene (Z). The Silver Dapple gene turns the black hairs of the mane and tail to a silvery white, and the body color to a chocolate. A true chocolate palomino is a liver chestnut with a Cream gene. (ee, Cr).

    This morgan is a silver dapple, often confused with a chocolate palomino.

    Need a horse that carries the silver gene - it is carried alot like the dilute gene, must have one parent to pass it on - but a chestnut can carry the gene and not show it as it only affects the black points on horses. You get in a number of breeds, lots of minis and pony breeds with it and a lot of your western breeds as well. :) I love the colour!

    You need the Smut gene...and then feed lots of "black feed" ...a non smutting Pally will not go that dark with any feed**)

    We are hoping our new girl is a chocolate Pali. So far all signs are promising (legs and rump are now dark like eyes and muzzle) but we will not know for sure until she fully drops her foal fluff.

    This boy of mine, has the smut gene i believe, his dam is chestnut but in summer coat has a big smutty patch on her n/s hindquarter...
    I reckon with the right feeds, he might come up a fantastic dark colour, not as dark as your girl Dayna. But i LOVE smutty Pali's, LOL.

    Remaani - you can see it in his lower legs starting to come through already.
    I rekon he will go pretty dark.

    Even though it is not 'liked' in the pali ring, I have all fingers crossed that our new girl goes very smutty, so much easier to keep in show condition than a clear coated palomino.
    We can clip without looking spastic
    Any little bit of bark off will not stand out like dogs balls due to the dark skin on Palominos.

    Which would be why you like that dark fellow of mine then :)

    Just watching him in his yard, standing tall with his chest puffed out & all proud - certainly appealed to Jenny & me!
    He's a very nice boy, didn't get to see how he did in his classes but i could watch him all day. :))
