    But just ignore me, just thinking outloud.
    It tends to lighten the tail head more than the rest of the tail. Even extreme cases tend to have a fairly solid colour to the tail before you get very far down:

    He has Silver Design on his top side, so yes he has roan in his lines. I'll see if I can find a better pic of his face. I also wondered about grey because of his tail. Is it possible he is a blue roan with an expressed grey gene? I am completely color/genetics ignorant.

    I don't think he's rabicano, the white flecks are all over his body typical of a roan

    Hmmm...could the tail be because he's a splash?

    Have you got any clearer shots of his head? Shots of his tail could be helpful too. And his legs. I don't ask for much lol.

    I'm kinda leaning more towards grey myself. Does he have a grey parent?

    Here's a couple more I found, not sure if they're any help though..

    The brown spots in the second picture are just from him laying, he doesn't have strange brown spots lol

    Does he have white hair on his face aside from his blaze?
        03-14-2013, 10:14 PM
    Yes he does

    Then I would be fairly confident that he is indeed grey
