PALOMINO HORSE BREED

Palomino Horses

Palominos' with their golden coats and blond manes are usually thought of as a color not a breed. Relatives of the Arab and the Barb, they were prized in 15th century Spain by the Queen and when the explorer Cortez went to Mexico, the Queen allowed him to take some of the horses. There he presented some of the horses to Count de Palomino, thus giving them their modern name.

Many escaped into the wild and became part of the Mustang herds of the United States.

Height: They vary in height and can be ponies or horses.

Color: Various shades of golden, from cream to a dark chestnut. The mane and tail is almost always white-blond and the only markings allowed are on the face and below the knee.
