By the time pepper was 2 his Medicine Hat "roaned" it and the ticking became less and his red mane became white but forelock stayed red. By the time he was 5 the red forelock became almost white with some red and now at 13 his forelock just has some red strands like his mane. The inner ear stayed red. Yours has some more red than pepper does he might keep a bit more. Your horse doesn't have any grey parents correct?

That's good, at the least I'll have a few years to enjoy his color, and crossing my fingers that he doesn't lose it at all.

If you're referring to Red, thank you. He looks a mess right now but this was taken a few months ago, before he grew his winter coat.

Yes I was! And your welcome. I love his coloring just the way it is. But am sure he will be just as handsome if it changes.

I glanced right over this question before sorry. His mom is a bay roan sabino, she's in the background in the picture. He was a surprise foal after I bought his mom, so the father is unknown.

From the picture, I'm guessing his dam is actually only bay sabino. Sabino causes roaning like that, same with your colt, who would most likely only be chestnut sabino and not red roan sabino, as most would call him.

I call her roan because her body is pretty much solid roan color with only a few small white spots and then her face obviously gives her away as a sabino. I wouldn't consider red a roan at all. I've posted a better picture of Sky.

She looks true roan to me the picture quality isn't great put she appears to have the upside down V's on the front legs.
