    Hi Shyloh

    He is just a straight palomino; what you see along his back is generally called shadowing which a lot of palominos have, particularly at certain times of the year. It also seems to be more common when one parent is smutty - I've seen some ripper shadowing, false dun factors etc on horses that have a smutty parent. Apart from which I don't think there are pure-bred genetic dun Welshies anyway (no doubt someone will correct me if this isn't true:)* ) so his sire would be a buckskin and if neither parent is a genetic dun he can't possibly be a genetic dun either.

    The shadowing doesn't make him ineligible for paly registration at all so if you want to get him registered, go right ahead **). The coloured hairs in his mane and tail probably come from the liver chestnut dam and are possibly a legacy of the shadowing along his back. They may go against him to a degree in paly classes depending on the judge but ultimately good paly judging comes down to conformation in the end so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    @)welcome Abbey09
    hope you enjoy stockyard forum
    the black patches could be caused by the smutting gene or feed like lucerne or molasses
    cheers shyloh :}

    Magic Kiss if you want to see what a palomino roan looks like ask Coliban nicely and I am sure she would be happy to put up some pictures of Metallic Oak
  9. You are a mind reader, mudslide! I was going to put pics up anyway, I got Tel's pics last night, it is very green in Michigan now as you can see.

    Metallic Oak(exp USA) Q-42461, bred by Coliban stud.

    Hahahhaha Lena you know me to well :p
    Wow look at Tel hasnt he matured beautifully, was thinking of the photos you had of him in the round yard, that might give MK more of an idea on what the pally roan looks like :)
  11. He is a busy popular boy, it is full on breeding season over there, so he is a bit on a lean side*#)
