In his prime it would get iceballs on it in winter and drag the ground. I'm nice and cut that off when it happened.

Green Broke
I was told that she was an appy by the place that I adopted her from (local therapy riding program, she had too much attitude for the non-horse volunteers and handicapped riders), I can only assume that they were told that she was an appy by the person who donated her. I don't have any pictures of her as a younger horse. While I was grooming her today I checked her over super, super close and I could barely make out the barest hint of chestnut hairs left on her elbow and her stifle. I tried to take pictures but my cell phone camera was not cooperating with me. She has a long mane, but there's not much too it, and it gets really thin about at her shoulders:



Both of her eyes are also half blue, half brown. Not sure if that supports appy or paint. She has a lot of white showing around her eyes too.

OK, the eye does it...Appy. I couldn't see the mottling on the eyelids in the other picures.

Sadly though, that doesn't solve a whole lot...she could be a Pintaloosa and still have the sabino...

Wacko horses...

The black spots are skin not hair color your horse is a max sabino. Sabinos like pepper and your horse are confused for appaloosa's all the time. When I take pepper places people always ask me if he is an appy. Here pepper has the same black on his face pepper also has chestnut hairs throughout his coat. If the black spot had black hair growing out I'd agree he was an appy but he's a sabino I'm like 99% certain the more pictures I see I wish you could meet pepper in person so I could show you.

Notice the black around his eye and you can see some of his red hairs he still has his winter coat in this picture.

Those black spots are not the same as the spots around an appy's eyes. I am not discounting some sabino or similar unverified as yet influence, but appys do have mottled skin where no dark hair grows..

Black spots like that on the eyelids are quite common in Appys...I have no idea what you are referring to - a black spot on the eylid is a black spot on the eyelid.
Almost all mine have had them. I don't have any close-ups other than this one which I took to record the obvious corneal ulcer...

I was referring to mottled skin and black dots on eyelids as opposed to only one large black dot in the corner of the eyelid I viewed.. Yes, I am saying black dots, mottling is an Appy characteristic. Sorry if I didn't explain it well enough.

In my quote I was referring to the post by PBR on her sabino's black spot.. Not the OP's horse.

Oh...that 'splains it - I thought you were talking about the OP's horse, which had me stumped...

Personally, I think we should get our 2 X 4's out and make the OP get her horse tested so we know exactly what it is...
