So what would she be considered?

I am told sabino as she has roaning throughout her coat.Her face markings are all black with a bald face.Her tail has white hairs at the base of the tail(near her butt) so she might be rabicano? What would you consider her?

Is sabino or rabicano a desired trait or not?

Is the roaning through the whole patch of black, or just at the edges?

It's throughout her back..especially in the summer.
Up near her face and neck it's solid black with the roaning around the edges....

In the spot on her side, how does the roaning appear?

I wasn't going to say a word I swear =P

To be honest, I am leaning toward sabino over rabicano. Rab should be denser on the barrel, and usually has some barring in it.

Lol :P

Yea,I clipped her a night before a show thinking it would be quick and easy and I ended up bawling my eyes out and too scared to show her in halter :P

Alright,so rabicano has stripes down the rib cage or just looks like lots of roaning in that area?

Wow that url is huge :(

It tends to give a barring effect and be heavier on the barrel than anywhere else, as you can see with this boy.
