Just out of curiosity, what do you think Bliss's color genetics are?

Bliss is a flaxen chestnut. I thought she was roan because she has white hairs, but some research has told me she probably has rabicano instead.

Here are pictures (sorry about massive size!):


She looks like she has the slightest dorsal stripe in this picture, but she doesn't really. Haha just at the base of her tail.

Can kind of see the white hairs on her flank there!

But yeah, I'm not planning on breeding her or anything. I'm just curious haha.

Could you post a better picture of her from the side?

She's flaxen chestnut like you said, but since she doesn't have a coontail, she's not rabicano. I am definitely leaning towards sabino.

Can you get us a straight on side shot?

I'm leaning towards Sabino and not rabicano.

Play nice, you two.

Here's a decent side picture!


It's not very close up I know... I can try to find a better one if you need it. I wonder why I don't have many side shots of her? Haha :)

A closer shot not in shadow would be ideal.

Her "dorsal" is just counter shading.

sorry for double post, but I read up on rabicano and looked at some photos... based on that, I think your horse is rabicano. The "coontail" effect doesn't have to be striped necessarily - it can be a flash of lighter color at the tail base. Your horse has this, as does the one below.
