help picking out what to test for?

I am thinking about testing my mustang. For her base color and her pinto pattern. I know she probably has sabino for sure. She also has a half bald face. But what else? What specifically should I test for?





And here she is all wet after a bath.




She also has freckles



And before her bath.

How much money do you want to throw at this one?

Cream, Extension (red/black) Agouti (the good one with brown included lol), Frame. You could throw in Dun, Sabino and Splash but I don't think she looks splashy, and Sab1 doesn't seem common in "big" horses. And she doesn't look dun to me either.

I bet she is CrCr E_ A_ - Perlino.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

hehe a little at time! Lol

She isnt necessarily a big horse. Only 14.2 hehe. Definitely not dun.

I know her on coggins they have her listed as buckskin.

And I kno she isnt pally because her mane is pretty dark.

also, wouldn't perlino make her have pink skin? She definitely has black skin except for her face which is a pain in the rear for sun burning.

She isn't a double dilute because her eyes are dark, unless I am mistaken from the pics. I'm not so good with colors to tell you any more than that, but she looks like a light buckskin with some other gene making the coat even lighter.

NdAppy. I have entertained that idea but I have owned her for basically $ years. Her color has never changed. If she was grey I think she would be more grey and less red. She is about 9 years old now. So grey is a definite possibility.

I would test for extension, cream, grey and sabino.

She looks like black based with cream = buckskin, with sabino, and it looks like she is greying.

Very interesting color. She's very pretty.

she does have dark eyes as well. I think she may be a buckskin. As if you look her mane and tail are pretty frosted. Her mane is really dark under it.. but idk if I would call I black. I always thought she was probably a buckskin with a champagne. Which would be an ambercream.
