Chestnut and sorrel are genetically the same thing, they are both Red. It depends on your area and discipline as to what the horse is called.

And the APHA and AQHA are the only registries that recognize sorrel as a colour. Every other breed is chestnut, regardless of shade.

My friend's horse, a solid paint, looks like that. She is APHA and AQHA registered as a red roan. The white started on her flanks at birth and spread every year. Now it covers her ribcage.

Alright, I finally have some pictures..But the more I look at her I'm thinking Nah, she's not. I think it's just white ticking like you I just pulled her out of the pasture so she looks a mess..

ALSO..I knew a few of you posted in the other thread I had about her trying to put some muscle on her can use this picture too and give some advice..even top line exercises..

ANY advice is welcome!!

Could someone explain what is a Rabicano?

I have seen several sorrel foals born with a flame tail, white on the edges, and roan flanks. As they gotten other they loose the white in the tail and the roaning in the flanks.
