    I agree with the consensus, probably chestnut with sooty (though there are some pix that make me really wonder if she might be bay). Sabino pattern definitely, beyond that, I have no idea on pinto pattern.

    100% no Appy traits at all. She's a gorgeous little girl, very stout and well balanced.

    Also, she's rocking the mohawk!

    Thanks you guys! I agree she looks chestnut from the barrel back, but I feel like by her shoulder and neck she's a lot more gray! Not sure if you can see it here (and don't mind the hairdo lol) but she even has some black specks mixed in

    Thanks! Her mane is literally so thick that one day I got completely fed up trying to get it to stay on one side that I just chopped it all off I think she pulls it off nicely too!

    I could be blowing smoke here, but it looks like the sooty and the sabino are mixing up front to cause that roan-y/gray-y look.

    Just curious, what do you guys mean by sooty? I have never heard that term applied to her either.

    Okay, looking at the new picture, she's 100% chestnut. No bay at all or else she would have black tips on her ears.

    Sooty is just what we call the gene that tends to make certain areas of the coat darker...most generally it's more obvious on the neck and shoulders. It can give them a smoke-stained look on their body or mix darker hairs in with their mane/tail.

    Also, she's is not gray. Sabino is notorious for giving a horse a full body roan look.

    Sooty makes usually the mane and tail, and sometimes body (working from the extremities inward) to look dirty, or like they've been covered in sooty.

    Here's a palomino with sooty: http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/k.../treasure2.jpg
