I had a bit a look around about genetics and colors and found this description of rabicano here.
QUite interesting are the "grades" or noise of this coloring.

A friend's Arabian is colored like that. I said he was a rabicano and she said it was age...he is only 20 so I don't think so. Our barn owner raised him and raced him as a young fellow and now he trail rides. Sakkara has the side markings exactly like that and is a sorrel color with the streaky tail...he is pretty!

This little filly is a pretty girl!!

Easy, bay rabicano. I'm not an expert but I can tell. So pretty with the frosting looking coat

Definitely rabicano. I had a minimally expressed rabicano, he had white flecking on his flanks but no skunk tail. More flecking came out as he got older but it was definitely there when I got him at 5yo.

Sabino has a similar 'roaning' effect but all sabino horses have a white lower lip and jagged edges to their leg markings. This is classic rabicano patterning - which CAN come in conjunction with sabino, but a horse doesn't have to be sabino to be rabicano.

My anglo arab is a sabino, he has uneven/jagged socks on 3 legs and a star/stripe/snip conjoined, plus a white lip and belly splash. He is what would be considered minimally expressed regardless. And he has no roaning at all.

I had a rabicano. No white on the legs, small star on the face, minimally expressed rabicano with flecking through the flanks, body and neck and the odd white hair in his tail.

I have also photographed a medium-expression rabicano warmblood. He had significant visible roaning at the flanks and a marked skunk tail.

I firmly stand by my assessment of rabicano here.

Edit; search google images ;) rabicano horse versus sabino horse. They are very different, and rabicano matches this filly to the letter.

Thank you everyone. I sent the info to the filly's owner and she was thrilled to learn about rabicano and agrees that is what the filly is.
