Thank you all for passing on your color info! We finally get her to the barn here tomorrow, hopefully get more pics now that she gained a little weight back!

DB - I don't see rabicano here. Rabicano tends to be centralised right down in the flank, and this just feels too far forward for me to think it is rabicano TBH. I wish there was a test for it though

Chillaa the bay filly that was born this year has a full sister that looks like that mare. Most QH people swear she is a roan but as a purebred Arabian that is not possible.
But if you say sabino then it is sabino unless of course NDappy says its rabicano then I will agree with her. LOL
I will not argue with you or her when it comes to colour genetics.
The two of you ought to write a book and go around the world giving lectures. Shalom

I am going Mustang/Draft, too. I have a sabino red roan. She's a paint. In the winter she's almost red -- in the summer really gets white. The color is one thing, the body/breed is another. My sabino roan has the belly splash, too, and a medicine hat. I'd say you have a bay sabino. Pretty. Check out my barn pics for my sabino roan.

Im not 'going up against' or 'calling' anyone-- what about this though?

The op horse does have it in the flank- throat latch- insides of legs- top of tail- and mane-- I thought that was rabicano?

Even when white is under the throatlatch on a rabicano, the color is still concentrated in the flanks.

I'm with chiilaa here. No rabicano.

I am not denying that the horse has white on its flanks. However, rabicano is heaviest on the flanks - it is the starting point of rabicano, it is where it should be the absolute heaviest, and the center of the concentration should be right in front of the hind leg, where the hair goes the other way right there. The OP's horse has less white there than anywhere else. That is why I don't think rabicano.
