I made a palomino and palomino tobiano coat, this was my first proper try at making a coat so please leave any reccomendations or what i should do to them to make them better. If you would like to download any of them just ask and i will get the link
The colour turned out strange in this photo, the horse isnt nearly as white and it looks a lot more natural

Great job for a first try! Did you use a reference picture? I know that always helps me. A couple things I would suggest:
Palominos don't have pink muzzles except in spots where they have a white marking (like any other horse). Their skin is still black unlike a cremello horse which has a pink skin. Palominos are typically a bit darker in color as well, although I have seen a palomino that was almost this light.
As with any coat, I like to add some shading and highlights too. A little around the eyes, along the neck, shoulder, etc.
That's just my two cents. Just keep practicing and you will get better!

Thankyou Eyelet! And thankyou Heather, i did actually use a reference picture for the paint, but not the palomino. I added some highlights and shading around where you said. What do you think of this one? Thanks!

Yeah it's looking better. I would additionally add some darkness to the muzzle. Take a look at a lot of different rl palominos and you will see what I mean.
And a side note: not sure if you just put that coat on some random horse, but palomino arabians are unregisterable. Unless what you have is a cross. Also it's head is so tiny! You might want to make it a little bigger
