    Born with pink skin, no grey goggles etc.

    Skin now black, still no goggles & coat underneath is very dark, still not grey.
    I believe he'll stay Pali, as do several others, but then other's have said going grey?

    What's everything think? (i don't care either way, as i love his mum's colour!) I should of chucked in a hair sample of his as just sent off a couple of samples to colour test before Xmas LOL.

    I would have said palomino :)

    Although what colour are is eye lashes in the last photo - that is the only thing that would make me suspect grey.

    He is too pretty to be a boy though :D

    I know - was meant to be a filly, didn't matter what colour LOL.
    Dam is waiting on a preg test so fingers crossed it's a filly this time LOL.

    Can't see eyelashes in the last pic, only tiny reflection from the camera but i need to get better pics today, those were taken about 6pm yesty, bad lighting LOL.

    Are the last two photos taken at the same time?

    Just in the last one I can't tell if the whiteness of his eyelashes is just a reflection. If the one above is same day (or later) then definitely pally from me :)

    If he was going to be a few hands bigger he could come and live here :D

    I would have snapped him up if he was going to mature over 16hands...he's one lovely boy with stunning markings and the BONUS is being a palomino, so hope he stays that colour :)

    Though i reckon him around that height would be fantastic!

    It's MUCH too hard getting pics of him, he's in your face & don't keep still, lol. :)

    I'm still sticking with Pali though local horsey friend still swears Grey, sent the last 2 to her & she is saying Grey, Grey. Grey, lol.

    I can't see it LOL.

    Yep Palli from me also.

    Pallies coat colour will usually mature to the colour of their eyelashes.

    I think pally. You got the best possible colour from the cross, sucks about the dangly bits though! He's beautiful :)* And if I won lotto, he and Pheonix would be mine :D

    I just looked at pic's of gem at that age( with OH ) and although her (Gem's) nose area is not pink it is definately a light grey not anywhere near as dark and the gold hair goes all the way to the eyelids..... no dark areas at all coming through anywhere ... So now we are ??????? swaying to grey ... not that we are experts ...';'';'';'

    Reckon paly. Pink skin at birth is generally indicative of that as 'grey' foals are often born with darker skin. Pity he has 4 white feet because dark feet are also a good indicator. However, time will tell :)* because there are always exceptions to every rule particularly when it comes to known colour genetics.

    Thanks Tintara.
    I am happy to torture him now (wasn't when he was younger LOL) & pull some tail or mane hairs to test him.
    Will send the test off this Friday. **)
