    I'm personally thinking very minimal sabino is the cause of the flecking, the fuzziness around his star, and the sharp point to his sock, myself, but wanted more opinions. I was really shocked to see the flecking on him under his foal coat.

    These are older, but may be more helpful to see the softer parts at the tail head? (Momma is now is much, much plumper <3 Abby)

    TG! He's looking like an actual horse now! Hehe He's growing and is now just under Abby's height. I am confident he'll be at least my QH's size.

    Sorry. Bay dun. I'd say he's a bay dun. What would you say?

    I too was thinking Rabicano. Is there a patch of white hairs on the belly?

    I am headed out there today and if my new phone arrives, I'll take better marking pics for everyone to analyze. I'm expecting he'll be brown like his momma, not bay like he seems so far.

    That sounds more like it Does he have white hairs at the base of his tail? Maybe he carries rabicano?

    I'm not sure if the baby is brown or bay- you'll probably be able to tell when winter comes!

    Don't know what to say about his colour, but it's certainly interesting. He is not a true roan, since neither parent is. Roaning such as he has, usually means some kind of sabino or rabicano. As he ages, it will become more clear as to what he has going on.

    In the first pic, is that his dam behind him? She looks incredibly thin and emaciated.

    Yes Lizzie, she was not in the best shape when she arrived, but is quickly becoming quite plump. She is on 4 (2 art) scoops of Mare and Foal, a scoop of soaked beet pellets twice daily, and 24/7 pasture and a coastal roundbale. She is enjoying her new diet. Hehe
