Is my Horse a Blue Roan or Grey?

I can't tell I've had her for 2 years and her coat color hasn't changed. In the Winter she gets a little darker than the summer but other than that I can't tell.

I would say roan because of her darker head and legs but I really have no idea lol. Experts will chime in soon I'm sure.

Whatever she is she is ridiculously cute!

What breed & color were parents that will tell alot. If Grey or roan 1 parent would have to be.

I almost want to say Sabino as well but possibly roan or even a combination of the two! Definitely not grey though

I would go by the tail. A roan will have a black tail -- all the way to the bottom. The first photo looks a lot like the tail has dirty white in it. If it does, the horse is turning gray slowly.

Not necessarily. Sabino will cause this as well

The ends of the tail actually look bleached to me rather than grey. I don't see grey at all - I would expect some sort of indication on the face by this stage, and there is absolutely nothing there. I suspect she is sabino and maybe rabicano as well. You can see that there are some actual belly spots there as well as the ticking.

Does she by chance have Clydesdale in her?
