If a mare is a sooty palomino (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3999545076407.167513.1514449983&type=1#!/photo.php?fbid=4221721070668&set=a.3999545076407.167513.1514449983&type=3&theater) and the stallion is a sooty palomino (http://www.mcbridesquarterhorses.com/dbs/stallions/details.php?horse=Chex%20Nu%20Jewel&who=studs) what sort of foal might come of that pairing color-wise?

Just curious.

Palomino X Palomino:

25% Sorrel
25% Cremello
50% Palomino

Any of those could also have the sooty gene.

Oooo, Nu Chex to Cash! Love that line! I almost bought a grandson (opted for a different gelding in the barn with different lines and better feet).

The sire of the gelding I looked at was Night Deposit Chex. Nice guy!

In reference to your OP - I don't see the "sootyness" of those pals!

ETA: I see on the stud now!

SpiritHorse22, what they're not telling you is how much fun it is to play with the color calculator at horsetesting.com!:cool:

Personally I'm not a fan of double dilutes, so I'd keep in mind that your horse might look like this: http://doubledilute.com/docswhitehotgun3.jpg

Some people like that though because it means that when bred your horse will have the cream gene.

Oh he's not too far up the road from me! I've never heard of him before.

Ick! No thanks!

Just curious b/c a friend and I were talking about palominos, sooty vs regular, what could get it. I am personally not a big palomino fan (do love that stallion though!) and wondered about dilute to dilute and whether you'd end up with a cream. Personally not a fan!!

I'm sure that soot is a different gene than the color, so you could end up with sorrel/palomino/cream with or without soot.

I myself don't care for the cream. I'd be reluctant to breed palomino to palomino for that reason. Palomino to sorrel --- isn't that the combo guaranteed to be palomino?

No, you have a 50% chance of sorrel and 50% chance of palomino. Cremello to sorrel is guaranteed palomino excluding other modifying genes.

Um. I don't mean to be rude ... but are you SERIOUS?!?
The color is FABULOUS! The build? not-so-much.

That is obviously a "Halter (aka beef-steer) Horse", not to mention that the picture looks photo-shopped to make him look even wider.

Um no - he is reining bred. And knowing what Nu Chex's look like in person, I'm sure he is fairly substantial. Here are some more pictures of him: http://www.hilldalefarm.com/chexnujewel/
