Dove is a APHA mare, color unkown. Sooo... I've had this mare since she was born. She was out of a black stallion and a bay mare. She was born almost WHITE, with very faint grey points. As she has aged, she has only grown darker - In my experience, grey horses usually get lighter with age. Anyways, she has roaning throughout her entire body, even on her legs and face; not enough to be considered a true roan. Her main and tail are black. She has no dorsal stripe. During the winter she is black. Throughout past years i've called her grullo roan, grey, black roan, brown roan... what is your opinion on her coloring? How did this color occur? From what I know, she has only bays, blacks, sorrels, and chestnuts in her background. I've never really seen any other color like it.. Is there some kind of formal, or official name for this color?
