What color is this QH??

This isnt my horse, but I've been looking into OTQH's and came across this girl. She's a QH, but what color is she? Brindle or rabicano? I really have no clue lol. She's beautiful though

I'd say a chestnut/sorrel with sabino, and maybe a skunk tail

if it were a roan the head and legs would be darker than the rest of the body, and the white hairs would be more evenly spread and not clumped together like they are

I would wager rabicano, but that is my unprofessional opinion.

My best guess is that she's probably carrying both sabino and rabicano...but it's likely the rabicano that is giving her the roaning.

She is a very beautiful mare.

I'm with RunSlideStop. Rabicano all the way. In fact, if you google "rabicano quarter horse," that horse's twin comes up: http://qualityhorses.net/wp-content/...hd-500x400.jpg

Equine Genetics: Rabicano-Not Roan

Rabicano - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (I usually don't like/trust Wikipedia, but this article is not bad)

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I was thinking rabicano, partly because of the white/greying at the base of her tail, which is a sign of rabicano is it not?

And yes, I'd love to own her :( Dash for Cash, Special Effort and Benduino bred, and in foal to Mac Meyers. Bet it's gonna be a beautiful baby as well!

Chestnut Rabicano Sabino. No doubt.
Not roan and not brindle.

Sabino and rabicano for sure. Sabino is causing the face white and leg white. Rabicano is causing the barrel white and the tail white. Rabicano loves to form stripes, which is where the brindle confusion comes in, but it's just rabicano.

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.
