For the record - I had a horse with clear localised flecking around the flanks, he had very little white (a star, that was it) and no white in his tail. He could not have been sabino, he simply did not have enough white... the only options for his colouring are rabicano or simple flecking. His was so localised, rabicano is the only logical explanation.

And yet, no white in his tail, AT ALL. Maybe a white hair here or there but certainly nothing remarkable.

I think it is possible that the OP's horse might be rabicano, HOWEVER, looking at the white on the horse's face, I'm seeing a lot more sabino. Look at that chin spot, there is a pinto pattern causing that, and my money's on sabino.

Finally got side shots! Here you go!

I also thought I'd get a leg shot, since she seems to have sabino-looking leg markings.

Again, thanks everyone for your help!

THIS horse is definitely sabino. There is no doubt. Those jagged "arrowhead" leg markings, the blaze that avoids the eyes and creates a chin spot. Classic sabino. The flecking will in this case be due to the sabino gene.

What BEP said. She also has pangre/mealy (lightening of the lower legs and underside) along with her sabino and flaxen.

Oh yay, agreement from one of the experts! :P

After checking out that face marking again, is there any chance there might be something on top of the sabino? There's that little spike going off towards her left eye that just makes me wonder, because a sabino blaze will, to my knowledge, more often than not avoid doing that.

Quick geek moment, don't mind me - colour genetics are so much fun!

Edit; also, would that grey in her mane be caused by the interaction of sooty and flaxen possibly?

BEP - I want to say splash. That blaze is a bit heavier on the bottom than on the top, even if the rest of her markings aren't amazingly neat.

That's what I was feeling too Chiilaa. I wasn't quite certain and didn't want to look like an idiot, but that was the feeling I got. Think I'm getting better at this business of guessing the genetics behind different markings.
