This is a 2 year old filly that I rescued in the middle of June.She was going for slaughter because she is blind in one eye. Her color is getting darker and darker all the time here is a picture taken afew weeks ago. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j179/Aagilbert/100_1014.jpg

Amanda, my guess is buckskin. It looks like there is black in the mane and a dorsal stripe down her back? Any other guesses?

Cathy I don't have anything but bays and chestnuts so I don't know much about the creme genes but my gut feeling was palomino too other than the black I saw. Can palomino have black in manes and on their back? I have to admit I'm completely clueless to this :-)

I would guess Dunalino, look at this stallion http://grulloquarterhorses.homestead.com/DUNALINOQUARTERHORSE.html
Ignore the first pic, but if you look at the pics towards the bottom of the page there are some that look very similar to your filly (where his mane is banded). It looks like she has the mottling, ear edging and guard hairs, but I can't really tell about a dorsal stripe or barring from the pics.

Amanda,

The mare is a smutty palomino.
Yes, they can have black in their mane as well...very common for those that are "smutty" (vs. golden) in color.
Here is a brief site that goes over some of the shades you can see in palomino's. If you scroll down, it has a pic of a smutty pal.

I thought ANY black in mane/tail indicated buckskin. If a palomino is red based, I don't think they can have black points. I've seen young buckskins with that salt and pepper look in their manes...it eventually sheds out all black. But I am NOOOO expert!

Shelley that's what I thought too so that's why I said buckskin but like you said, I'm no expert! I breed arabians and have only bays and chestnuts so it's all greek to me!

She is a smutty palomino. One of her parents carried the 'smutt' gene and has passed it on to her. We have a cremello stallion and when he is bred over liver chestnut mares of bays that have the smutt gene the palomino foals are born golden but after there first coat shed they get black through there coats as well as there manes and tails at times. Not very good if you are aiming for that golden colour but they are palomino's none the less. She isnt buckskin, she has no black points on her legs or around her ears and eyes. If you feed her black sunflower seeds, the feed product 'groom' or even a livermol type product my guess is she would almost go a chocolate/black colour.

Colour genetics is very interesting and something I had to research as we first were breeding paints and then went into QH's which normally wouldn't matter so much except for our boy is a cremello. Its all very interesting :-)
here are a couple of links to our boy

Thanks guys, we think he's handsom to but then we are a little biased :-)

Her parents could have been chestnut and palomino, two palominos, a cremello and a chestnut, a palomino and a bay (that carried a red gene), a bay and a cremello or even a cremello and a palomino ... thats one thing you wont be able to figure out though from just looking at her. Maybe even a perlino and a chestnut. Any one of those mixtures is possible!
