My mare had Rabicano, and she didn't have white on the top of her tail. There isn't always skunk tail with rabicano, but it's one of the signs.

This horse is not rabicano. I am wondering if he is going grey if his sire is a grey and went grey at a very young age. You may not have a chestnut horse for long!

Wouldn't there be more signs of grey though? Like on his legs and in his tail?

He appears to be AT LEAST a year and a few months, probably more, and you would see more signs of going grey at this age.

Not necessarily TF. Greys can and do grey at different rates.

The white hairs are sabino at play. You can tell because of the white spreading on his face. Definitely not rabicano. Rabicano likes to isolate to the flank area mostly and often puts a sooty tone in the tail.

I agree that it is sabino causing the white hairs.

My mare was almost 2 before she showed significant grey signs. Until then she was bright bright sorrel.

This was my first thought, and I was sure it had to be sabino, but I wasn't 100%

Yes. I know sabino blurrs facial white and makes them less crisp and clean around the edges as if it is trying to fan out.

I thought the same thing, but I don't know the mother or the fathers history of who had what markings, and as he's growing and shedding out more and more if it is coming out. When he was born he was SOLID chestnut with just the one white sock, and star and snip on his face. I love the fact that he's going to be flashy when he finishes out.
