A picture from the side would be way better.

Sometimes its hard to distinguish bay from brown until winter time. So i wouldnt rule out brown quite yet.

And you didnt say anything about his base color. Which would be the bay/brown. Roaning at the flanks and white at the top of the tail is the racabino pattern.

This horse however, does not have racabino now that i see pictures. I dont see any white at all. Then again, they are not the best pictures. Too far away.

Why would you say rabicano if you don't know what it is? I agree that I don't see any white at all. Seems to be just a bay/brown. I've seen very minimal rabicanos but the top of the tail always gives it away.
