Couldn't dig up camera, so instead I have crappy Ipod pictures!
She's lightened up quite a bit since she's shedded.

Do her knicks and cuts grow back in as her base color? She is just too strange. I still lean toward roan of some sort!! You've definitely got your guessing game match here!!

Now that I think about it, most of them do grow back her base colour, just wondering what the weird white spot was from. Also, the reason she has so many knicks and scrapes is because she is a complete escape artist. If she wants to go somewhere, she'll get there. Over, through or under( she actually crawls).And also from roughhousing with 2 yearlings and a 4 month old.

Do you know a lot about roan? Usually that's a pretty good indication of roan and not gray. From what I know, grays grow back in either gray or white...roans grow back in as their base color. Eventually they get covered in funky little solid marks...this is referred to as "corning." She sounds like a pretty funny little girl :) I learn toward roan...mom was gray, dad was unknown...right?? (or am I thinking of another thread?) ;) lol

I know a bit about roan, but I haven't been able to spend as much time with Rosie to notice if they are actually from her scratches and scrapes. I would assume though that they are cornmarks. And yes, daddy is unknown ;).

Lucky bum...I'll bet she's a roan...lol

I love roans.... but will it last? If mom's a gray, then she could end up one too. Just a guessing game for now.

I think if she were a gray, you'd know it by now. But I could always be wrong. She could end up completely white by 5 :)

I vote gray. Roan wouldn't touch the face like it appears the white is from pictures. Gray never really changes two horses the same way. It's possible that her legs will stay dark the longest while the rest of her lightens. Definitely brown or brownskin base though.

She can carry gray and roan, but one of her parents would have to be roan.
