    Sabino TWH and ??

    I have recently gotten a TWH mare and am interested get get opinions from the experts on here coloring. She is obviously sabino, but I don't know what her original coloring might be. On her papers it says sorrel with grey modifier....umm I'm thinking that's incorrect. The previous owner called her a grey roan and based on a picture of her from last summer she has darkened with her winter coat, which I know is normal, and it also makes her sabino markings more obvious.

    Excuse how dirty she is, we put her in the stall when she first arrived and she raised total he** in there and worked up a big sweat. This was before I had brushed her out.




    This is the picture from last summer

    Short of testing her you will not be able to know her base for sure, as gray changes it, usually darkens it up a lot in the graying process so that the original base color is not recognizable. She may well have been chestnut before she went gray.

    How old is she? Grey seems reasonable and I don't see why she couldn't be sorrel with grey.

    She is 7, will be 8 in June

    So is it likely she will end up turning white?

    Where did the sorrel come from? She looks black based.

    I'm between black sabino and grey sabino. You'll have to wait and find out, or do a dna test on her. I have seen black sabinos like this. The summer picture she is very grey looking though.

    If she is grey, she will eventually be "white"

    Also, wouldn't the sorrel coloring still show through?

    The mane and tail are black. Sorrels that grey out won't turn their mane and tail black. (Please someone correct me if I'm wrong) so I'm thinking she was black based...not sorrel? She doesn't show any indication of red.

    Right, that's what I was thinking. If you look at the hairs closely they look blackish, not red/chestnut. Her registration papers have her listed as sorrel, so that's where that came from. However, it wouldn't be the first time info was recorded wrong!
