    Wow, Aston really could be anything- in some photos it looks like he gets lighter near the coronet (suggesting liver chestnut), but most of them it doesn't. The first couple pictures he looks black (or smokey black, judging by how much faded he is in the other photos) but the lighting and photo quality is TERRIBLE in those. If he were mine I'd get him tested out of curiosity

    Where are you seeing rabicano in the foal? The roanong is probably caused from the tobiano.

    I thought rabicano included the roaning. But I see now that sabino can! I am curious to see if you guys think she is a frame? She isnt a foal anymore, lol... I'm just having a hard time finding good side pics. It's very muddy here in wv in the fall, so they always look sloppy, especially paints.... But here's pics from both sides. Also wanted to add that Aston was a bit underweight when my friend got him. He is almost back to perfect now. I am supposed to go measure him this week actually. He was apparently started in barrels, then put on the back burner. But the first horse the breeder leased to her was not a good match and she got Aston instead. And she got him in poor condition. I've seen worse, but... Ok I'm not saying anymore. I might say something mean, and that isnt the point here.... Not sure why he was skinny. But he was. So he doesnt look all that great in the latest pics. But those are from two months ago, and you last month when I saw him last you could only see his ribs if he turned a certain way.

    Sorry, all I have in the daylight to see her well is winter coats....

    In about two hours or so I will upload pics of Aston's legs and barrel and face. He looks great! His butt has gotten muscular, but I measured him and he hasnt gained any and his ribs still show a little. But he looks brown! NOT like a brown horse, bc he has NO brown points or lighter points in the winter. But his coat looks brown... You'll just have to see! I thought smokey black too when she told me liver chestnut on his papers. MAYBE fading black... Btw, the paint mare is Sue.

    Yea, I agree with you all. That is what I thought when I first say him. Think the paint mare is frame?
        05-29-2013, 05:00 PM
    I think there is a good chance that the paint mare is frame, but can't say for sure without testing. Frame likes wide white at the top part of a blaze, which she has, however I have seen some wide blazes that did not test positive, so it is not a sure thing. I don't see Rabicano at all.

    I agree with Aston being faded black or smokey black.

    Would love to see your bay/brown tested. If he is brown he may be AtAt as they seem to be lighter than Ata horses. Are you SURE that his sire was black and not a dark brown?
