Pali Pinto foal - Grey or not?
Hi guys, bub born tonight in Western Australia. Cremello sire, Grey (Chestnut) Pinto dam. How do i tell if he's grey, no "goggles" so to speak? Will get dry pics in the morning.

WOW, haven't seen a pali foal that dark since Goldie was born :-BD ....congratulations on a beautiful foal... :bday
Okay, now as to the grey, you can either get better pixs once dry (there is some hint of goggles though) ymwhisle or just pull hairs and have him tested (the sure-fire way)...

Not fussed if he's Grey, he'll (sadly) be sold anyway.

Re: Pali Pinto foal - Grey or not?

I'm going to go with no grey as well, because of the pink skin.

Yep, I agree with Maigray.

Also, not all greys get goggles.

I'm not fussed if he went grey though - thinking of "snip snip" & keeping him LOL.

Maybe the sire is palomino pearl and the foal is chestnut carrying a pearl gene. :D

Yeh that's what I was wondering. No obvious grey signs as such so far, but he is rather dark...

Re: Pali Pinto foal - Grey or not?

Hmmm my post went bye bye! I was just going to say that to look at how dark the mare was as a foal compared to the mare's foal....mare was dark, foal not, but the test results will interesting now with so many unsures!

Re: Pali Pinto foal - Grey or not?

acc, i think he has a few grey hairs above his eyes now, or i am seeing things, lol.
Didn't when he was born though.

However, i've been told time & time again he was born with pink skin so CAN'T go grey?

But IMO i don't care either way, he could be any colour - i still adore him lots! :)
Not tested yet, been soo busy i've forgotten! LOL.

Palominos, without Grey, often have those "roany" hairs above the eyes.....

Re: Pali Pinto foal - Grey or not?

Not true. I see absolutely no reason why they couldn't have pink skin.
