    Is he possibly......

    Ok, I tried to get the best pictures I could today. Is Jack possibaly a minimal Sabino??? First pic is his flank, next is his tail head, then barrel, under his throat & then a full body pic. The white hairs on his body almost looks like dust, but trust me, it isn't. Thank you oh color guru's of the HF!

    He looks minimal rabicano.

    I am going to call Rabicano! He looks like he might have a 'coon tail'.

    Does he have a frosted spot on his belly?

    No spots on his belly, ok, now I get confused the difference between rabicno & sabino is????

    I can't tell in the picture because I think the outline of his ribs is playing tricks. Is the white on the barrel in a brindle or bar pattern? Apparently that is a mark of rabicano.

    I am reading more on it so I will let you know what else I find.

    No bars or brindling, just bad angle of the pic

    So, what color is my Sorrel?

    Rabicano causes a coontail, which is the white marking on his tail, and white ticking concentrated on the flank and barrel of the horse. Even the loudest rabicano horses do not extend much past the barrel. crazy. It can cause roan-like ticking all over, but it distinguishable from a classic roan because it doesn't have the leg and face restrictions that roan does. Sabino also typically gives white markings jagged edges as well as sometimes causing belly spots.

    Ok, so he would be a sorrel rabicno? Does that meant he may be a Paint & not a QH?

    Rabicono is common in QH. You see it quite a bit in the Doc O'Lena lines.
