My mare had a palomino baby. He was born the creamy color and was a nice gold color when he was wet at birth. He has a lot of brothers and sisters on the ground out of the stud, so I know he's going to change color. LOL But when! How long does it take? Months? A year or two?? He started shedding out the muzzle and around the eyes right after he was born. He's out in pasture with his mama now, and they're miles away, so I can't go see him. It sux, but it's best for them.
Anyway, has anybody got pics of their palomino and the color changes?

Look at the color of the eyelashes of your palomino foal. That color will be the body color. As for how long to shed out foal hair, I wouldn't know. In '07 I clipped my foal when he was 4 months old to get rid of that nasty coat and keep him cooler.
