You might have seen her brother Twister on ABH, I don't go there (and I think I had quit going there by 2005/2006) and I've had Patti since she was about 6 months or less old. When she's not sun faded she does look black, but in the summer she looks more bay. Right now, she looks like dark chocolate.

She could still be brown. I know of a couple of brown horses who look either bay or very faded black in the summer and then for winter are black as coal and have about as much lightened flank as she does in your picture, but a very obvious brown nose.

Dreamcatcher I am going to be really jealous if you get a brownskin tobiano. If its a filly I get first dibs.
Your post just inspired me. A brownskin with a dish, flowing mane, and tail.
Shalom

Hmm. Maybe. I thought that both of the two foals were for sale at about the same time as Atomic Deluxe because I had thought about buying her. But I may have been confused.

Donald, If it's a Filet you will be the first person I tell! Gotta say, Patti makes some unbelievably good looking and sweet babies. It's one of the many reasons SHE will never be for sale in my lifetime.

Yeah, at the time, I had seen her brother advertised and had been looking for a homozygous tobi saddlebred, which he was, but I didn't want a colt. I wanted a filly. Brenda told me she had his younger sister and I bought her sight unseen, just off what HE looked like. Atomic Deluxe was for sale around that time too, I think, because Gail Therell was very ill and not doing well. He was since purchased by Tracy Caruth, who has also passed away. He may be available now.

Ok Color Gurus! While I was at it, I asked them to add the Splash test on Honey Boo Boo, since she didn't end up being LWO. Here's all her color results:

Bright As A Star
Paint Horse
Agouti: AA
Champagne: nn
Cream: nn
Red/Black: ee
LWO: nn
Pearl: nn
Tobiano: nn
Silver: nn
Splash1: n/SW1
Splash2: nn
Splash3: nn

Some of it was evident and obvious, but I just ran a couple of panels on her. Since Sabino is so hit or miss, I didn't bother with it, but she shows some of the characteristics, so I'm taking it that she is Sabino, as well.

I'm still curious what would make her mane and tail so multi-colored?


Pardon the Lady Parts, but it shows all the colors in her tail real well.

That's just a part of having a chestnut horse IMHO. I'm sure that the sooty gene comes into play somewhere when their mane/tail starts getting that much dark hair, but as of yet, there's no test for sooty. I don't even think the sooty gene has been identified yet.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ok, I was just really curious. I've had bays who came out with manes and tails like that, and they were called Wild Bay, but never had a Coppery Chestnut with that much difference in their mane and tail. Most of my Coppery ones come out like Bo, with coppery manes and tails. I've got a liver chestnut mare who has an absolutely PURPLE tail, it's amazingly mahogany, but that I'm used to with livers.
