Bella - My Paint Registered Quarter Horse.

Let's see if you all can tell me what she should be classified as based on her color/markings. She is a paint, not an appy. (Hmmm...seems all my pictures are taken on the same side!)

I wanna go out on a limb here and say dominant white. I am least experienced with DW though, so someone with far more knowledge should be more help.

Seeing as sabino is probably what I have the worst time recognizing and I know next to nothing about recognizing DW, I'm just going to sit here and read what others have to say.

I actually don't think this mare has any classic roan in her at all. Her face is the same colour as her body, while if she was roan it would be darker. I think there is sabino in the mix too, but I am still leaning towards DW.

You guys are good! She is registered as Sabino Overo. I have a hard time recognizing the color characteristics, but the breeders have her registered with APHA as Sabino Overo. I was told she is not a grey because she has pink skin??? Is that right? I was worried that she might have the grey gene. Greys, I'm told, can be predisposed to melonoma lessions. But I feel confident she isn't in the category anyway. She has a classic overo bald white face, but all four legs are white, where generally overos will have color on one or more legs. I found this site which seems to clearly outline her markings. I love her speckled pattern.

And HorseLovinLady, thanks... I am in love, completely in love, with this horse. She's my girl. She can be a witchy mare at times, but usually only when she's demanding treats. This led me to the discovey that nipping is widely caused by hand-feeding treats. So treats go in the grain dish now.

Interesting colour. She also looks like she's quite the character!

Roans don't have to have dark legs my roan has creamy white legs and a light muzzle

To be a true roan they have to have the dark/solid (in other words not roan) heads and legs.
