What color is she?

Hey all!

I'm new to the forum and I'm introducing my pony Precious. She is a welsh cross that I've owned for almost ten years now. Ever since I've owned her, I've never known what color to call her. I've heard a lot of different things, so I'm curious to see what you guys think!

Do you know what she is crossed with? She seems to have some appy characteristics. If not, she looks to be a chestnut with sabino and a flaxen mane and tail. She is adorable no matter what color she is!

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and go out on a limb (dangerous combo ). I'm going to say she's chestnut with flaxen, sooty, and sabino. I say sooty because of the "dirty" look to her mane and tail.

Hmm I have actually never heard sabino chestnut with flaxen mane and tail... that's interesting!

And nope, I don't know what she's crossed with! I would hesistate to say appy only because her mane and tail are reeeeaally thick!

You'll find that only the "foundation bred" appys have the thin, ratty manes and tails people usually associate with appys. The more "modern" appys have such an infusion of stock horse and other blood that they've lost a lot of what people consider the "traditional" appy traits.

That being said, I'm not seeing any appy traits in her, period.

I'm not a colour expert, I'm just going off of what I have learned from the knowledgable folks here. My first guess was chestnut with sabino, flaxen and sooty. But that's really just a stab in the dark, there are others on here that would know more than me. Whatever her official colour may turn out to be, she is sure pretty.

Not Appy. That's sabino causing all of the loudness. Possibly frame with how wide her face white is and the patches of bigger white on her body strike me as maybe frame, but I wouldn't be surprised if she were only sabino. Testing for frame would know for sure.

She's also a chestnut, not bay.

I would say sabino for sure and would guess, like the others, that her base is chestnut with flaxen. Possibly sooty
Gorgeous by the way!
