Whisper from what I can see in your pictures of her, she has black points at the tops of her socks. If that is so then she is bay, nor red.

Extremely. Jealous!!!! My palomino Gelding sort of does this too, but not to this extent. IN winter mainly but sometimes during fall/summer he gets some spots on him. I don't have any pics, but I think it's just the coolest thing. Also, in his mane/tail, instead of being just white, he's gotten some gray and now some orange seeping in. It's just so cool!!!! I'll try and get some pics. The Orange is mainly at the base of his mane, but I'm thinking it'll get darker. SO EXCITED. Question also, does this coat and mane change mean he's not exactly FULL palomino???? just wondering.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!

No I get that. I meant bay sabino vs bay roan.

I have a grey appy with varnish marks who goes from looking almost completely white in the winter to a much darker grey in the summer for show season and i have a red roan mini who is almost completely solid in the winter but has an amazing summer coat i don't have pictures on my computer of the two extremes or i would post them.

A western horse has guts and commitment, an English horse has grace and elegance, but my horse has it all!

Whinney is truly a silver dapple but goes from this
to this
to this

Not as dramatic as some are, but still a big difference from summer to fall to winter.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

Whisper, it might also be possible for your mare's base color to just be a very dark liver chestnut. ;3 Thought I'd throw that out there too.
