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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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.

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.

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 thats even possible) or a flaxen sabiano.
