    Any clue??

    Ok when we first got our mare last winter I posted pics of her asking what people thought was not only her breed but her coloring... well winter is over and we gave her a bath... wow.. maga spots... so what would you call this??? Still looking for breed ideas... I'm still leaning foundation QH by her build and movement. And now she also has this brownish splash like speekles. An hour after bathing... all but snow white again only dark very visible is on her face.

    Our gray mare is a registered Paint. But to look at her you wouldn't know until you give her a bath. She has 3 white socks, a big white blaze(almost a bald face) and the white on her belly.

    My uneducated guess would be that she's got some paint.

    She looks paint to me. She could have lots of QH breeding though.

    The tiny brown spots on her hind quarters are what gives a "flea bitten" grey appearance.

    So your mare is grey. With a paint pattern.

    The last picture, her croup looks really Arabian-y to me.

    Looks like a grey tobiano paint. I see quite a bit of TB in her like her face, high wither and bum so I would definitely suspect a Paint.

    So does "flea bitten" happen with age?? Apparently they weren't there last summer and I know she didn't have them with her winter coat. She is now 19.

    We were told Arabian/mustang but no one really knew for sure. Our vet even said she has many characteristics of different breeds, even appy hooves lol

    Striped hooves come with paints as well and the fleebitten marks can appear anytime in grey horses. Sometimes they get the spots, sometimes they don't and not necessarily all over.

    I love a grey paint. It is so cool that they are disguised like that. She kinda looks like a quarter horse to me with a broodmare butt.

    I agree. If I had to guess I would guess a grey Arab/Paint cross...
