Much more rabicano looking than roan, for sure. Clearer pictures would only solidify that in my mind. Chin spots are often caused by sabino, and are unrelated to classic roan.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I had asked the same question about Nikki probably a year ago..It just looks like white ticking to me, like what Nikki has..Scattered white hairs all over her body, around her tail head, and white hairs all throughout her mane and tail. ..When I think Rabicano, I think of all of the cutting horses bloodlines with the major coon tail and excessive white hairs..

We are several months away from sheading season, but I will try to get better pic when I can. We have no idea on his backround or bloodlines, he was an auction rescue. I'm not sure what you mean by coon tail but his mane & tail do have almost ever color possible in it, from blonde to black.

Well....lol I posted the exact same pictures as NdAppy and I don't want to take up the whole thread with the same pictures!

As you can see, the coon tail can be just on the head of the tail or fall all throughout the tail. It is/can be seen on a rabicano but is more prominent on roans..

That def looks like some rabicano he's got going there

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Can you get a pic of just his tail head? I won't say one way or the other off of that pic as it looks like dust/dirt and not necessarily white.

How old is she? Some horses roan out over time... I've had two horses go roan before... ;D

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!
