Is pangare causing the frosting on the tail, or is that from something else? That's the thing that was throwing me off, since I don't know enough about pangare to know if that's a related trait!

I would say so. You can see it is the colour of her paler parts, not actually white or grey.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Thank you for all your kind words :) I was confused by the tail frosting too, so it's good to have some experts weigh in. She is a keeper for sure :)

She is defiantly Not a buckskin,
I no doubt would call her a wild bay.
That is when a normal bay has legs that don't extend as high up as a classic bay, resembling the wild ponies that are bay, this also caused by 'pangare' (also called mealy) on them, which she has, the light areas on her soft spots (nose, armpits, flanks).
This would probably be common in a thick native pony breed which she appears to be. If Icelandic's are common around there, then it is very likely she is at least part one.
I can't really define anything else, I am not good at those breeds of pony / European types.

She is not a wild bay in any way, shape or form. Wild bays black points do not extend above their fetlocks and this horse clearly is higher than that...
