Okay, thank you.
And to Speed Racer... Really I just want to know what's causing the stripes. And no we got her because of her mind and temperment, and I love her regardless.

I think the stripes are from Dun, looks like she is a black Dun. They have all sorts of primal markings, stripes on legs, etc... Eventually though, I have to agree that she will probably gray out and be a white Nakota:) She is super cute by the way, I haven't heard much about Nakotas but everything I've heard has been awesome.

I'd be willing to bet it's just her graying out that's causing those "weird" vertical stripes that you're seeing. Horses gray out in all sorts of funky patterns.

The greying out process is causing the stripes. Very common with grey, more common than not actually

She is beautiful and to answer this .... Nokota horses are descended from the last surviving population of wild horses in North Dakota.

She is certainly adorable! But I agree with the majority she is graying out. Which means she isn't roan.

Thank you!
And nv2rmany, that is right. But, those wild horses are actually decendents of Chief Sitting Bull's herd of government horses that were given to them. They were mixed with everything. If you notice, Spirit has the white pigement around her eyes that Appys do, meaning she probably has some Appy somewhere way back in her blood

Graying and the dun markings are what are causing your striping. It is not uncommon for the shoulder barring to continue down the entire back, causing a look of vertical striping, which is what it looks like to me and being further distorted by the graying process.
