Yearling Color Mystery (Picture heavy!)

Hey Everyone,
I've got one for you. My chestnut QH was pregnant when I bought her, no one knows who the sire was, breed, color, etc. And the baby she had, has been doing a rainbow fish type of color change throughout her life. When she was born, we thought buckskin. As she got older, we thought maybe she'd be buckskin with a blanket. Then it was bay. Then grulla, and now maybe roan? Hopefully someone here can settle the dispute. She's a little unique...as I've only found one horse online that looked similar to her coloring. So I'm posting pictures of her from pieces of her life so far, and maybe someone can finally solve the mystery of what color she is.

The day she was born


One month


3 Months



7 Months: That's not water, it's her fur


9 Months


11 months


1 year (The middle of her side that grew back white-ish was shaved because her winter coat wasn't shedding and she was covered in sweat because it was far too warm outside)


1 year, 6 months (taken today)

Alright, I can kind of see sooty buckskin, although none of the images I can dig up, have the black around the eyes... Can you find me one that does? Or do you think it's going to turn white?
It's the same darkness/shape on both sides of her face. Or is this maybe just a marking?

Brown is another form of agouti (bay is also a form of agouti). Basically you have a black horse with the brown agouti, the cream gene and the roan gene. Most people refer to brownskins/brown buckskins as sooty buckskins, but that is incorrect as it is NOT caused by sooty. The brown agouti has been isolated so it IS correct to call a horse what it is.

I'm going to go with brownskin roan. She looks much like a filly I use to have. Here she was when I got her as a yearling in the spring.



Then during the summer her yearling year.


This was starting the winter of her yearling year.


Spring as a 2 yr old.


Then one of the last pictures of her as a 2 1/2 yr old before I sold her.


Notice she has the same coloring between the eyes as your girl. I'd love to see better pictures (better lighting) of your girl!

Her face is very similar in that last picture! And the picture of her in the winter looks very familiar as well! I didn't doubt "brownskin roan" was a color...I had just simply never heard of such a thing. But that would make sense why I haven't seen any like her lol..it's apparently not a very common color. I'll see if I have anything better I can dig up as far as pictures! Since I've had her since she was a baby, I've got far too many :X
