What kassierae said. Most definitely not roan. Just normal sorrel ticking. Every sorrel/chestnut I've seen has had it to some degree.

Kassierae- i dont know much about haflingers but the few ive seen have whats called 'pangere' lighter manes tales bellies and insides of legs and feet. I dont think my mare has pangere- she does change her colors with the seasons and is at her lightest right now- shes almost chestnut but you can still see the red- like ronald mcdonald red hair, lol.

She will darken up this summer and her dapples will show a lot.. her legs are darker than her body too- if it helps any.. i need to trim her up and take quick pics.. if the sneaky snake gelding leaves us alone.. hate to chase him off but hes a pest!

I know what pangare is, lol. It doesn't cause the white ticking, it lightens the muzzle and soft points, sometimes up onto the belly, very similarly to brown. Moose looks like he could pass for a red roan, which he is not. Sorrels and chestnuts very commonly get white ticking, some can appear roan but they are not.

Sorry- i wasnt trying to belittle you or anything.

i do agree with you to an extent- if she didnt have the roans on her papers i would say so.. you think maybe just rabicano? Its not in her flanks as much though.

She can only be a roan if one of her direct parents are a roan. Grandparents colors don't matter unless they passed it on to one of her parents. Roan doesn't skip generations.

I also agree that she's likely not carrying a roan gene. Pretty typical ticking, IMHO. I've got a Belgian that has more ticking than that and has a ton on her face (which a true roan gene wouldn't do).

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:

Not true roan. Looks to be just white ticking common in red based horses.

I would like to see a body shot of her when she is all dappled. I bet she is very pretty.

I was wonderin about the roan thing- if it could be possible if her sire or dam wasnt roan.

Belgian sorrel, lol. I didnt know thats what it would be- ive seen red belgians that did have the white in the mane like hers and yes her face has it too spreadin from her facial marking.

What is the white ticking caused by? Some kind of sabino? Shes solid except for face marking.. no socks or anything- and is black skinned.

Ill be sure to post more pics this year of her- shes gorgeous when shes all dark and dappled up.

It's just something a lot of red horses do.

Sabino wouldn't cause that without EXTREME amounts of white-- high socks, belly white, etc.

Sabino likes crazy socks and symmetrical blazes. Splash likes weird blazes and straight socks. Frame likes faces but hates legs. (In a nutshell)
