    Black Tobiano or Black Tobiano Rabicano?

    My family and I have a 2 year old mini filly that we have had sense she was a weanling. We have always thought that she was a black tobiano, but now she has white hairs mixed with her black hairs near her flank area, and she has white hairs on each side of her tail near the top, but is black in the middle.
    This makes me think that there is a possibility that she may actually be a rabicano. I have no actual experience with a rabicano as no one that I know owns one, which is why I am questioning if she is a rabicano or not.

    At the moment I can not get any pictures to upload, I am sorry about that. I will try to get the pictures asap.

    Ok I finally got some pictures to load - do you think she is a rabicano?

    You can definitely see the white hairs in this picture, and you can kind of see the white in her tail.


    Forgive me please, it was getting dark when I was taking these pictures, plus Keeta wasn't wanting to stand for long lol.


    Isn't she cute??

    Is she rabicano as well or just tobiano, though?

    I don't see rabicano. I think the ticking you're seeing is a result of sabino.

    I didn't realize sabino caused ticking! I guess that also makes sense, don't sabinos often have white on/below their chins like she does?

    Have no idea what causes it or if it's just a fluke but every black horse I have ever had tended to get roaning in their flank area at different times of the year. Right now I have 2 solid black mini's, not so much as a star, snip or anklet and an APHA black/white tobi all with roany flanks. Happens mostly at their two shedding seasons so I don't know if the hair loses color when it's ready to shed out or what.

    That is interesting. I don't think the hair actually looses color though, just winter coats tend to be slightly different. I do have a black/white pinto mare that doesn't do that at all, though.

    Tobiano with sabino. Sabino commonly accompanies pattern markings such as tobiano, causing jagged edges and "roaning" as well as the skunk tail and can grow and appear over time. And since tobiano alone does not cause face white, sabino is most likely causing her blaze as well.
