What's her base colour and is she greying.

So I know she is a varnish roan tobiano, sabino and splash, but I can't figger out her base colour, she has a black forehead under her forelock but has brown ears and aournd her mouth, noseand 'arm pits' she also has a mixture of brown and black spots, also is she greying?

No idea what colour her parents are but do know there was an old stallion on the property that the people I got Molly from got her from as a foal.





Above is from winter april 2011












Also does she has frame?

Base color is either bay or brown, though i cannot tell you if she is greying. The easiest way to know would be to find out whether one of her parents was grey.

Thank you but wouldn't she have black ears if she was brown and black tips if she was bay?

I have no ways of finding out anything about her parents as I don't even know the name of who bred her all the people told be about them was he was a crazy old man with an old retired appy stallion in the field next to the mares and foals

I'd guess brown as my first guess, bay as my second for her base color. With varnish roan messing with her coat, I have no idea how you'd tell if she was also going gray without DNA testing!

I am thinking she is brown based, but being she is a pintaloosa there is no way to guess for sure as LP messes with base coats.

She is not greying she is "coloring out" or "varnishing." It's appaloosa roan.

Varnishing out, not greying out!

And if you ask me, she is a brown...under all those crazy other genes she has going for her!:)

I know she is Varnishing out but was worried she was greying out as well as she is going light very quickly and would hate her to loose her spot.
Thank you

Varnish can act very fast or very slow it just depends on the horse. She'll keep her appy spots.
