Colors are confusing, but starting your own horse is pretty fun wheatermay even though its a long time investment. I've gotten all my horses as babies and I think that is the best way because you know their history and you can train the the way you want. I enjoy training my own horses. Right now I spend my free time working with jet. I'm currently lead breaking and desensitizing him its pretty fun play with the lil guy.

I really wanted to start her when she turned 2, but I was pregnant with my own little one and couldnt. Now I have two 3yr old horses, and a 1yr old boy, so I only have time to start one horse! I feel bad, but its for the better that I send Buck away this fall to get broke by someone else. I really wish I could do it myslef tho. But I can't let him get too old before he's started! When My son turns 13, Buck will be his horse :)...Buck will be 16 and well broken and experienced!

I've also heard of a war bonnet, but don't really understand the difference between the medicine hat and war bonnet. The red coloring on her head does attach to the one side of her face, but NOT attach to the war sheild on her chest. Her mane covers that detail. And If you can't see in the pics, she has black in her tail and forelocks, and some black spotting on her legs and above her hooves. Is she tri-colored, b/c I have read a few threads on here saying there arent very many true tri colors... I don't get why... lol...
She's a Bay Paint. A tri-colored paint has 3 colors on their body. Suki has Bay and White on her body, the black is in her mane so that doesn't count as the 3rd color.

She's not a medicine hat as it's conected to another spot on her body. Medicine hat would just be a spot that covers the ears. It's not connected to anything else.

She's a Tovero. That's the cross between Tobiano and Overo spots. How to tell the difference is Tobiano spots are more rounded. Overo are more jagged spots.

As for someone saying she's Sabino, I don't see it. I think it's just dried on mud on her butt flung onto there by her tail.

Sabino patterning is visually recognized by roaning at the edges of white markings, belly spots, irregular face markings, especially white extending past the eyes or onto the chin, white above the knees or hocks, and "splash" or "lacy" marks anywhere on the body, but particularly on the belly. Some sabinos have patches of roan patterning on part of the body, especially the barrel and flanks. Some sabinos may have a dark foot or two, but most have four white feet. Both blue and brown eyes are seen. At one end of the sabino spectrum, the SB1 gene, when homozygous, can produce a horse that is almost completely white with pink or only partially pigmented skin. Some forms of sabino genetics are also thought to be the most common reason for solid-colored horses with "chrome," a term which can refer to horses with bold white markings on the face and high white leg markings. The most generous definition of sabino can include horses with as little white as a chin or lower lip spot.


Not being smart or anything, I just looked it up on wikipedia, lol... she has roaning on her barrel and flanks, 4white feet, bold white face, high white leg markings...maybe that?

you still can't really tell too much in these pics of the roaning. I don't really have one that does.

I still say sabino, due to the roaning on her hips. As for the high white on her legs, that is cause by tobiano in this case most probably. As for her face white, I still say frame, as sabino would try to avoid the eys a lot more than it has.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

To me personally, I just think it's just roaning but I could be wrong. It could be real light Sabino markings. I haven't seen a horse that has that light of Sabino markings.

The roaning has to be coming from somewhere. It's not the haloing that tobiano causes, so my next guess would be sabino. If the horse showed other appy traits, I would wonder if there was a bit of varnish roan going on, but she doesn't.
