Thanks! I can't wait to see the foal from these two! Should be incredible!

Have them tested and post the results, the stallion definitely looks classic roan! But could also be heavy rabicano. I wouldn't let the skunk tail be a determining factor, both of my blue roans had skunk tails. What does his belly look like?

What a beautiful horse!

Definitely rabicano. True roan does not exist in the Arabian breed, in order to have true roan one parent must be roan. Rabicanos can sort of resemble roan, but if you look up photos of true roans you can see there is a difference.

I had the understanding it was never actually denied, just not accepted until fairly recently.

There were quite a few sabino Crabbet Arabians way back in the day. I think some people thought it was unfavorable back then though, I always thought they were gorgeous. I'm glad there are so many colorful Arabians today, and doing so well in the show ring.

I know. I had a couple of those "colorful Crabbets back then. If you wanted them registered, you didn't mention the extra white.

His belly looks just like the rest of him. All "roan". No belly spots. :)

Some argue because they don't have the SB 1 gene. But they obviously have some strain of the sabino gene.
A few years ago they started to accept sabinos. They didn't prior to the DNA testing, back when to get registered you just needed bloodwork because they were sure they had to be crossed. A lot of people that produced them didn't register them because it was looked down. I heard of a lot of Khemosabi daughters/sons that were sold as grade because of belly spots. Probably kicking themselves in the you know what now.

Thanks!!
Australia and Fairview Stud in BC has a lot of sabino Crabbets/CMK. My Khemo grandson is 71% CMK but a bay. I think he is one of the few non chestnut Magic Aulrab sons, but with minimal white. I love him though :)
