    I am assuming that this picture is her back. This is the give-away for me - for a minimal rabicano, I would expect no white to reach her back at all.

    I was going by the tail too.

    Yes, right behind her withers. I was kind of worried about saddle fit but I am almost 100% it fits close to perfect. She has no soreness and with the other white hairs I am just not thinking its the saddle doing it. I know nothing about rabicano so forgive me if I come off dumb. Hahaha

    Nothing to forgive. You are not coming off as dumb, you are coming off as someone that is curious and wants to learn more. I love it when people ask why I think something, because it means I need to think about it too. You will notice I always try to explain the why when I say what I think is going on with a horse. It helps me makes sure that what I think matches with the evidence and it lets other people learn not just what colour it is, but what signs they can look for

    These are the same as my horse.
    I've ruled out my saddle, because it's a wintec and we measured her and whatnot and changed the gullet.
    And she's had white for a really really long time (since before I got her) but they just pop up even more and more

    Jack has almost the same thing. His starts at his ribs, starts fading out at his flanks & is heavy up around his tail head. With his winter coat, you can hardly see it, but in the summer time, it looks like someone threw baby powder on him. He also has a softball size white patch under his throat latch & his bottom lip is white. My vet said it is roaning & has him listed as a red roan on his vet file

    Littrella, I would need to see more pics, but I think your boy might be a minimal rabicano. He's not a roan though.

    Roans wouldn't have white on their head like that

    Not the best picture, this was taken last spring when he first started sheading. Right now with his full winter fuzzys, you can't see any of the white on his body. Tried to highlight the areas where he does have it & in this pic, you can't see the patch on his throat latch area
