That's not proven though either way though.

To be honest, I am leaning toward sabino over rabicano. Rab should be denser on the barrel, and usually has some barring in it.
Rabicano is a type of 'roaning' found in sabino she could be a sabino with rabicano roaning. It is not normal roaning either, and can be found anywhere on the body, but doesn't roan out to the extent that a normal roan does, and often doesn't start until the horse is a little older. My mare just started showing her rabicano roaning when I got her in the fall of 09, and she had JUST turned 10.

Atleast that is my understanding...I'm probably wrong, it's happened before...Lol!

Rabicano usually adds a 'coon tail' -- one or more white rings at the base of the tail. They may or may not have extreme roaning and bars on the ribs. Some only have a little roaning in the flank, but about all have the coon tail. I don't see any hint of a coon tail on this horse so I would say he has no rabicano gene.
