That horse as in the ones I posted or the OP? Because all the ones I posted are 100% silver.

As to it being rare in stock breeds, yes it is. But she's a mustang and its NOT rare in mustangs.

And the horse you posted definitely looks liver + roan + flaxen. In the pictures posted of the OP on this thread she doesn't to me. I'm not saying she's 100% not, but in theses photos I think she looks more silver on a black based than red.

I know the horses you posted are all silver it's obvious but we'll have to agree to disagree but that horse is not silver.

I agree with chestnut base, but I'm on the fence about varnish or classic roan. The lack of anything on her face makes me think classic, but her back legs are throwing me off because they look more varnishy.

Looking at those pictures I think classic roan too. I still think a chestnut base as opposed to silver - I just am not feeling the same tone that I usually do from a silver IYKWIM? However, roan plus a long weekend with little sleep could be messing with my eyes lol.
