If you look up sabino paints Scenic Jetalito usually comes up. Heres a pic of him he was a pretty boy. Im almost certain this is what your horse is.

Haha...Of course I remember her, but not the small details. She does still have evidence of her varnish marks as most of them do - most notable in front of the point of the hip, just below the stifle, and on the lower ribs.

I don't know - without yet seeing pictures of the OP's horse when it was younger I'm still guessing either grey or non-Appy like a max sabino as Peppy mentioned. But that's just a guess at this point...

Look at Peppers chest see the dark spots that is actually his skin not his coat. Pepper gets this coloring from his grandpa another sabino paint called Scenic Jetalito.

Wow they do look a lot a like. She does still have color inside of her ears.

I was thinking that the markings on her skin look a lot like this stud: Messler Paint Horses: Sabino and Paint Horses For Sale, Stud Service, Custom Sterling Silver Conchos, Saddle Silver and Jewelry! only without the color.

I don't have any pictures of her when she was younger. She does have the appaloosa mane though, and not a whole lot of tail either (but more than most)

Okay, so here is my question, say that she really is a paint that started out chestnut and turned gray, why then does she still have chestnut color on her legs, hocks, crest, and ears? Wouldn't gray erase all of that?

Grey would, but I don't know about the sabino - I don't much about paints.

Many horses other than Appys have sparse manes and tails. If I may ask, if you don't have pictures from when she was younger, and she doesn't have Appy charactceristics or color pattern, what makes you think she is an Appy?

I own an appaloosa I'm pretty darn positive your horse isn't because of the shape of your horses head, and though is does have a short mane and tail its not thin enough. Look at my app see how thing his mane and tail are?



Here are sabino legs similar to yours. They don't lose all their pigment like a gray also grays most of the time have gray skin that I've seen.



Characteristics that Sabino horses "might" have include:

Apron face
Bald face
Belly spots or splashes
Roaning between front legs
Blaze face
Chin spot
High white stockings
Hoof stripes on dark legs
Ink dots
Irregular face markings
Isolated body spots
Jaw or throat spots or splashes
Leg patches
Lightning strikes
Lip spot
Mottled skin
Roan ticking
Roaning
Snip
Star
Stockings
Strip

I see varnish on the front legs and on that back hock. What I don't see is mottling on the muzzle.. My varnish roan appy had the same spots on his chest, don't remember if he had them anywhere else.

Pics of Cheno at age 32 this past May, just before I let him go over the bridge, and one in March.

Here's my appy's tail see how thing it is. Appy tails can get long but tail is still thin haired. Your horse has a paints mane and tail to me. Also many people when they see peppers dark spots ask me if he is appy. But they are unsure cuase he has tons of hair. His mane is so thick is spilts in half and he still has plenty of mane.

Appy tail!
