Dilution Genes by Colourize-Stock Dilution Genes by Colourize-Stock
Got sick and tired of the appaloosa reference sheet I was making. I've now come to the conclusion that I officially have all spotted pattens... :P
You get a photo with a little poneh with tons of spots, and start to try to make out the different patterns. You see a snowcap, possibly leopard... no wait, is that a varnish head? Ok then, a semi-leopard. Oh no, there's some irregular spots there as well - possibly a spotted blanket then...? Argh!

So, therefore I went on to something a little more logical!^^
Dilution Genes!:D
Cream, champagne and silver, although I didn't even bother to add the pearl dilution, concidering that chances are pretty slim that I'll ever get my hands on photos of those.
It's however incomplete right now, but I'll try to find some perlino/smoky black/smoky cream to complete it.

My Welsh Cob mare is a palomino so dark that she was originally though to be a flaxen chestnut. This changed once she started having palomino and buckskin foals. She is a rich reddish color with a very pale white mane and tail. Would she be considered a golden palomino, or a category all of her own? <--- like this horse, but the mane and tail are entirely white. Plus, she has larger white markings :)

That's not a smokey cream I'm afraid - it's a silver one:)
