As I have stated before in another thread she is my first youngin and I don't have much experience with them or know much about a growing foal. I tried researching this on the internet but couldn't find anything maybe I'm going about it the wrong way or I'm not looking in the right places about a 2 yr changing.
The more she sheds out the more white hairs that show up I know her previous owner very well and she didn't change color like this when they had her. She starting to grow white hairs in her tail and her star and snip are starting to grow together. The white hairs are more around her back half and her belly I haven't found any around her shoulder, neck, mane or head other than her star and snip. I thought the first time a foal sheds was their color for life but obviously I'm wrong because she's changing. Her father was sabino/rabicano and carries the sabino gene (all this was stated by the previous owner) her mom was just a plain brown but my question is:
Do horses normally change color when their 2?
Is their a possibility she could be graying at her age or just roaning or something?
If she doesn't roan out and these are the only white hairs she gets will she still be considered brown?
If you find or know a good article/website about a foal changing colors or roaning or something like that I'd like to read if you'd like to share it.
