In the first picture she looks grulla, but in order to be grulla she'd need a dun factor parent. In the second picture I really don't know, but it does appear that she has ticking form the sabino gene, her blaze and hind leg white indicate sabino as well
Here are some photos of her during different stages of the year... I'm mostly interested in what everyone thinks her base color is - it would be nice to know for future breeding purposes... I think the general concensus is that she is some type of full body sabino... or something rather, lol!
I'll be interested to see what people's thoughts are. She appears to be the same base color as my two foals, just with some more demonstrated sabino. I have gone with the belief my two foals are dark liver chestnuts, though some people have insisted they are fading black/smokey black etc. In both my foals sire is a chestnut and dam is a black/white tobiano/sabino. Thanks for posting this thread!
(just for reference - my Finn, first in early summer, then late summer last year, and a close up of his sabino tail)
On whoever said roan isn't on the face or some such (sorry don't want to go back and quote ) it is rare, but it does happen that roan can and will roan the whole horse evenly. It is rare, but it does happen. (just pointing this out! Lol)
Just curious, do you have any pictures of this? I've never seen or heard of a true roan having their head roan out when they weren't also carrying some other gene that causes "roaning".
She is stunning no matter what her color is. My cousin's Tennessee Walker is similar in color - with the big apron face blaze and roaning color on her body that changes with the season's like your horse. Can't remember what color she said Lady Dollar was! I will have to ask her!
