I have a copy of her papers, but it doesn't show the parents coloring. I tried to look it up on, but they weren't on there. AMHA will show it, but I'm not a member yet. But if anyone is, her sire is Red Roan Lad (guess he may have been a red roan lol) and her dam is named Dorsas Tisket. It does show white as her official color which is a recognized color by AMHA. I still, however, think she is a light palomino.

She isnt white, she looks to be a grey to be honest.
If she was a white one, she would have pink skin (:

White is not a recognized color by AMHA, sorry. Having filled out MANY an AMHA app for registration, I can assure you that the color "White" is not listed as a color choice.

Here is a list of the accepted color choices for AMHA Miniature horses...


I also want to point out that AMHA does not advise the riding of Miniature horses. If you read what you posted carefully, it clearly states that while they can be ridden by small children, caution is advised. If you read between the lines when they say "extremely adept at driving" they are saying that's what they are best suited for. A harness hardly weighs 25 lbs, either.

Honestly, the mare looks too big to have a set of AMHA papers.

Cowgirl-Red Roan Prancer is Red Roan Lad's sire. I found him a lot in Google search results.

And white is on her papers, and on the site, it states that not all colors are represented below. It's on registration application papers. And why would I lie about her being registered? She's 33"

No, it isn't. And I never said YOU lied, that maybe the sellers are not being honest about her.

Honestly, they probably put her white as in meaning she is grey, look at her muzzle.. Wash her and see ! She honestly looks like a grey !

AMHA would have bounced that out, though. I have a few horses that are clearly brown (which I know that's all new in the color genetic industry) but AMHA does not list brown as a color choice- my new filly is brown and they bounced her app. Back, saying I have to list her as a bay.

It does sound suspicious- you might want to call up the AMHA with her registration number and double check that it matches this particular horse. Even if the horse being unregistered wouldn't change your mind about buying her, it should make you a little more cautious about anything else the seller is telling you if he's lying about the registratin.

So you have application papers or registration papers?
