Talking Posssible Brindle Going On?

So, here's Rosie again. Just wondering if it's possible she's got some brindling going on or some weird roan thing.
( I am pretty sure she is now starting to gray out, got lots and lots of white hairs coming up in her main and tail and starting to get these weird light patches.)
Can get more pictures if needed.

Do you have full body pics? If she's greying out, it's just what grey does. Grey works in funny ways sometimes. No brindling.

I agree, if she's graying out, that's likely what's causing it. Gray can do some really funky things, like making a non-dun horse look dun and making all sorts of colors look like other colors.

If she weren't graying out though, I would venture a guess that she was maybe carrying a rabicano gene. The roaning from that often comes in strips along the barrel that can look similar to brindling.
CLaPorte432 and SplashedOvero like this.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I agree with the others. No brindling, just greying ;)

Almost looks like Rabicano stripping on her ribs.

Can you give more pics? I was really interesting in seeing her progress from your other thread. I say roan of some sort. But smrobs could be dead on...sabino!! Does she have the "coon" tail? How old is she now? As far as mane and tail goes, gray's go gray from the ground up. They don't grow out gray as far as I know.

Sure thing on the pictures, just need to dig up my camera from somewhere. She does have some white hairs at the base at her tail, and she is just a yearling. Interesting about the main/tail thing too.

Agree, I see graying out but no brindling.

There are gonna be so many people in your life that are gonna tell you you can't. What you gotta do is turn around, look them in the eyes and say "Watch me."

Couldn't she have rabicano as well as gray?
