    Not a rose grey or a roan. The sabino causes the roaning and the nice thing about it is it doesn't fade.. Unless the grey gene is in the mix also. I don't think so here. Not max sabino or he'd be all white.. Base color is all you are looking for I am thinking.. Need to see a good summer coat pic. :)

    Here are two places that do the genetic color testing:

    Horse Testing - Equine Genetic Testing

    Horse Coat Color

    University of Kentucky also does genetic color testing, but I couldn't find their site.

    I looked into UCDavis before and it was $40.

    Breed? Looks silver buckskin to me, but silver isn't in a lot of breeds. Is she gaited? Many gaited breeds have silver.

    I test through Animal Genetics

    To REALLY know, you'd need to test extension, agouti, cream, and silver. Would be $90 for all four. (they do an extension/agouti combo for $40, the rest are $25. You just pull out some mane or tail hairs, really easy to do).

    If you want to be cheaper, I really don't see how she does NOT have one cream gene. So you could skip that. No way she has two, her skin would be light and her eyes blue. She is also not champagne. And really it's obvious she's not black, so you don't NEED agouti (if she is "black" than she has at least ONE agouti gene, which makes bay). So if you test for extension to determine if she's buckskin vs palomino, that'll tell you a lot. If she's gaited, and she comes back buckskin, it's more than likely that she's silver buckskin.

    Basically, if you REALLY want to know, 100% without a doubt, $90 for the four tests I mentioned. If you want to go cheap and just have a VERY good guess, $25 for extension.

    Green Broke
    Honestly i've no idea on her breed. Her mom was supposedly full mustang. And they sold her to me as a racking horse but i've only seen her try to gait once maybe twice. And I am not even sure maybe she was just lifting her legs high or something.

    So for cheap go for the Extension/agouti combo alrighties i'll see if I can come up with the money and maybe get this done!

    Ok, here's my guess - Red/Chestnut base coat, with one cream gene = palomino, plus one/two pearl genes which lighten her that bit more but leave the darker skin and darker eyes. Here is a little spiel on pearl:

    Pearl is a dilution gene that is an ‘incomplete recessive cream activated dilution gene”. A horse carrying one copy of Pearl looks almost the same as any solid coated horse, perhaps just a tiny bit lighter in both coat and skin colour. If the horse carries Cream as well as Peark, the Pearl gene is ‘activated’ and the horse looks similar to a Perlino. If the horse has two copies of Pearl, it gives an ‘apricot colour’ on horses with a chestnut base coat and the bay/black/brown colours also go lighter – it isn’t as light as a double cream dilute (Cremello, Perlino), looking more like a light coloured Champagne. There are only a handful of Pearl horses in Australia.

    She could also be a black base coat with agouti plus cream plus pearl - Which explains the darker hairs in her mane and tail.

    She looks like a very light champagne overo to me

    ^She doesn't have the amber colored eyes. No champagne. I'm going to go with chestnut or palomino sabino. And she may also carry the pearl gene, like wild_spot said.

    Yup - Champagne lightens the eyes and any double dilute lightens the skin and eyes so they are out.
