As far as I can tell, the BLM calls all red roans a "strawberry roan". I really don't care. She's a red roan to me. Like I said earlier, I take everything the BLM says with a grain of salt. lol

^^ that made me smile. Just because my friends (and several other mustangs in the challenge she was in) were stated to be 5-7 yrs old by the BLM, but equine dentists and vets said 10-12. So, don't count on the age, either.

lol Well, LeTigre LOVES to have her mouth played with, so I have looked at her teeth a time or two and am pretty good at judging age that way...she's pretty close to 8, I think. But I have adopted weanlings before that they called yearlings and they still had the short curly tail and fuzzy foal coat. Annoyed me, because babies need to be with their mommas longer than that. :(

Lol okay :)
And I thought all brindles were caused by chimerism?

It's about TIME you found us!! I've been following your adventures with leTigre for years. I love the fact that you were so patient and went so slowly with her.

WELCOME to Horse Forum!!

Thank you again everyone. Yes, I've been sharing LeTigre's info all along in YouTube mostly.

Nokota, Chimerism is one cause of a brindle coat pattern, but it is not the only cause. Unfortunately, they have been unable to determine the other causes, as far as I know. I do know of other brindles that were tested and proven not to be chimera. Also, Chimera cannot pass on their brindle pattern. The other type of brindle can pass it on. When I have LeTigre DNA tested for Chimera, I HOPE it comes back negative. Then I will know there there is a possibility of someday (NOT RIGHT NOW) having a brindle baby out of her.

I feel like I'm the lucky one for sure with LeTigre. I never dreamed I'd ever have a horse like her. I am SO PROUD of her!

No nvr2many, I am in Michigan. LeTigre was just captured in Oregon.
