Just for fun - she's bay, right?

I'm pretty sure my foster mare Lady is just your everyday bay (no fading in the muzzle/flank areas) but yknow, it's fun to be sure.

Her blaze is also interesting to me but it's probably also totally normal. It extends at the bottom into a lip spot which you can see in the last picture...

Anyway, here you go!

She's an Arab so there's not anything too fun that could be going on there, I guess...

My fingers are crossed that she's like hidden frame -silver agouti-wild bay-disguised max sabino-overo-tobiano...yknow, the whole shooting match, all the most impossible things.

It is really hard to tell if she is bay or brown without seeing a winter pic as well as a summer pic. Brown can change hugely from season to season. Sabino blaze

Is it just me, or is there grey in her mane? I am thinking that it is just the picture and I am seeing things...

However, she looks bay to me. Adorable sabino-y blaze though. Thelma's "drips" onto her lips too.

Bays are probably my favorite color. Lady is so adorable!

Thanks Chillia! Hopefully I'll get to foster her this winter as well so we'll get to see her in her winter "clothes" and we can analyze her then for reals.
Yay about her blaze! Finally, something fun!

Thelma is just SO cute, Gray! When I first got Lady and I really saw her blaze, I was like "WAIT!! Thelma has that same one!!" However, compared to Thelma, Lady has some honkin' ears! Hahaha
And she really does have white/blond/red hairs in her mane right there. It's really funny. It kind of looks like what dun/buckskin horses have in their manes - "frosting", or whatever - but she's definitely NOT buckskin or dun! Haha She also has a few white/light hairs on her fetlocks/backs of her legs but it's super not noticeable.

I love her color too. I always said that if I had to have a bay (nothing against bays, of course, the average bay color just isn't my favorite), she/he better be a blood bay...and well, I'm pretty sure Miss Lady is working it so I never actually give her back to the rescue... :P

LOL! Thanks for the compliments on her. Thelma is a special girl. Her ears make everyone's look huge. I can't help but pet them when ever I see her. They're so perky!

Lady's already adorable, but she's going to be stunning once she fills out. Perhaps the 'frosting' is from a very minimally expressed rabicano? Of course, it could just be wierd horse color that ignores the nice definitions we made to classify them. Grrr. Thelma has some honest to God, black patches on her shoulders during the winter. Not just dark bay or anything, but really true black hair grows there on her shoulders and part of her neck.

Horses are wierd.

And quite joking! We already know where Lady's going to be in another year. Right there with you and Lacey girl!

Her blaze sort of reminds me of Ellie's, only opposite! :)
She's adorable!

She also has some white flecks down her spine (I'll try to get pictures this afternoon - today is "Picture Day #2") but I figure those are just scars from being ridden while she was way too skinny (supposedly she was "broke" -doubtful, she probably had rides "snuck" on her- and her body bears the signs of chronic starvation, so I'd guess that she was probably mostly "ridden" while she was a rack of bones). But I'll get pictures. :)

Thanks WS! She's really funny too. There is no question that she's a ARAB MARE, gosh darn it!
Ellie is super cute! She has a very kind eye. :)

Funny, Sour has the white flecks along her spine as well. She's probably a minimally painted though, since her dam is pinto and she also has a white spot or two on her head.

I just love Lady though! I'm so glad that you and Lacey took her in <3

That's funny, Endiku!! I guess Lady and Sour just decided to be cool like that... ;D
What if Sour's baby can out a super loud paint? That'd be wild.
I like her too! I'm glad she's here. :)

For inquiring minds who wanted to know:

Her funny white mane spot (not sure why I didn't just walk around her and take the picture from the other side where it would been more definite...) -

The white down her back that I assume is scarring -

Her mane reminds me of this roan mare;s mane.. And her back.. I don't know. It definitely could be scarring.

It's interesting to see all of her markings though!
