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

    Ohhh I see it... that would definitely explain why her tail and mane look the way they do!

    One last surprise just for fun... she has a dorsal stripe going down her neck!

    Makes me wonder if she's got fjord in her, or if it's the sooty doing that.

    That is cool. What causes that is the whiter guard hairs on the outsides of her mane. It is probably caused by the sabino roaning. Where I'm from, that would be called a frosted mane or you could say she had frosting.

    Most commonly on regular colored horses, it's seen on duns, but it's also seen on some buckskins...particularly buttermilk buckskins.

    That's sabino and sooty. The manes on Fjords is caused by their "version" of dun that's specific to Fjords. Non-dun Fjords (which do exist) have solid manes and tails. The OP's mare isn't a dun.

    I wonder if she could be dominant white instead of sabino. It just has that look to me which makes me wonder.

    I was waiting for you to say that.

    No clue as to color but that is one really beautiful pony!

    Hmmmm my two bets would be either a strawberry-ish sabiano (not sure if that's even possible) or a flaxen sabiano.
