    What do you see?

    I'm usually on the other side of the guessing, so I thought I'd let everyone have a go at my new filly. She was advertised as a blue roan overo. >_<

    No idea about dam or sire unfortunately as her papers were fake. But I really like her patterns. Sorry about the dirty pics, these were taken the day she arrived. Rain for two weeks straight has made it impossible to take update pics. Her sunburn is HUGELY improved now.

    She looks dark brown, maybe a black to me. Obviously overo, frame, her butt looks sabino...Not sure about the splash, still learning myself. XD

    Frame, splash and sabino :)

    Frame because of the way she has a dark leg, and the white doesn't cross her back, and the way she has colour on the bottom of her neck and on the front of her chest. Splash because there's more white on one side of her face than the other, and sabino because the edges of her white are jagged and roany, and the white avoids one eye and the other is dark despite the pink skin around it.

    She's such a cool colour :) I think either brown or fading black, hard to say when all her soft areas are white :P

    I agree with frame splash and sabino. I also think brown - the paleness in her flanks is there, as is the paleness between her butt cheeks. However, it is quite golden rather than the russet tones I normally associate with brown, so should you feel like testing her to appease my curious nature, I would go with an At test, and cream...

    All three overo genes...

    Although, according to Chiilaa, there's like 50 different variations, and we just don't know it:)

    Ooh. I never thought to test for cream. I can do that. This far I have quite a list of tests to do.

    Since I don't know her background, she'll have a HERDA and HYPP test. Then I intend to test for LWO just to have the paper on file.

    So I'll add At and Cream to the list. The light areas are very golden and that golden hue stripes across her back as well in places but is most noticeable on the butt cheeks.

    Should I have the splash tests done as well for fun?

    She doesn't make it easy! She has color in weird places and not a ton of it. Her one colored leg is my favorite part. The eye patch is 2nd.

    To give a bit more detail, she was left in the sun pretty badly. She had scabs on her back, chest, legs and rump. So I've wondered if that has effected her coat in ways. She is completely shed off at this point.

    I don't know, as Chiilaa said- some obviously splash and sabino patterned horses come back negative in their tests, because there are different strains within the color. Am I right?
