palomino

Due to their unusual color, Palominos stand out in a show ring, and are much sought after as parade horses. One of the most famous Palomino horses was Trigger, known as "the smartest horse in movies," the faithful mount of the Hollywood Cowboy star Roy Rogers during the 1940s and 1950s. Another famous Palomino was Mr. Ed (real name Bamboo Harvester) who starred on his own TV show in the 1960s. Also, Link's Horse Epona, from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, can be considered a Palomino.

Palomino is a coat color in horses, consisting of a gold coat and white mane and tail. Genetically, the palomino color is created by a single allele of a dilution gene called the cream gene working on a red (chestnut) base coat. However, most color breed registries that record Palomino horses were founded before equine coat color genetics were understood as well as they are today, and hence the standard definition of a Palomino is based on the coat color visible to the eye, not the underlying presence of the dilution gene.
