This hors emay be more genetically than its phenotype is showing.

It is definitely 100% a sabino.

As for the roan/grey look...
There are several things it could be...
A. Simple sabino roaning. Many sabinos look "roan" but are not true roans.
B. A sabino WITH the roan gene. Very hard to tell because the markers of a true roan ios a dark head and legs. Not possible with this one.
C. A sabino going grey. Again, the face is the tell tale part and its covered with white so you can't tell.

My guess is this is simply a sabino with alot of sabino roan. If the horse is going grey, you will loose all that pretty color since the horse wil end up white eventually.

As for those eyes, Id see about gettign them tattooed with eyeliner. It really helps these pink skinned eyes. Ditto the long nose fly mask at all times when the horse is out in the sun.

Already been said but sunscreen and a flymask. I get to put the sunscreen on me and my arabs nose in the summer or else he'll burn quicker than a fly on manure.

Dover currently has a "Crusader" fly mask with an extended nose and ears on SALE right now :) I think its $17, but don't take my word for it. I live in TX and we have a the hottest summer on record and I have a paint with a completely white face that lives outside 24/ about horrible.

I do highly recommend the flymask with extended nose and sunscreen. I use human sunscreen with the highest SPF that I can find (usually baby sunscreen).
