My pony... confo critique AND what color is she?

I want to register her, but cannot decide on her coloring.

BTW: she is three years old.

Her dam was a chestnut tobiano pony, her sire was supposedly a pintaloosa. The info on her sire I got from her former owner was this:
"her Dad, who was a Pintoloosa. He stood 14.1, big build, grey and white roan with some dark bay pinto markings. His mother was a chest and white and as a baby he was paint colored, then roaned out as he aged."

What color do you think she is?

I've included as many photos as I could to get the best representation of her coloring. I've owned her for a year and her coloring hasn't really changed.

She does have some silver in her forelock and tail (her mane is totally white) and a few dark spots on her rump area.

I'd also like a confo critique please!! Thanks all!!

Here she is as a foal

Wonder if that is a Sabino gene at play?


My horses have done so well on dac that I became a rep. Stand behind 'em 110%.

Yes, I'd definitely go along with Sabino. There's a pony at the barn I ride at that looks a lot like her, and she's registered as a Sabino.
She's adorable. :)

This horse cannot be a red roan since it does not have a true roan parent. It could be an appy roan and that is what I suspect. That is not at all the same as a roan horse. Sabino will cause roaning but this horse is more "frosted" like an appy. Is there any mottling on the genitals?? that would point to appy also. I also think this horse is carrying the silver gene and you can see that coming out in the mane and forelock.


Pony is a little unbalanced being smaller in the hind end then the front. Head is somewhat coarse but has a kind eye. Neck is okay length but a little ewe necked. I wont comment on legs/pasturns as the horse is not standing square. Croup is weak with a low tail set. Ears seem overly large :)

I agree with you, weefoal.

Don't worry about the overly large ears though, large ears are a sign of a more laid back personality horse. :)

My guess would be that she's gray, hiding chestnut.

It is kinda hard to tell on color at this point. She could be a sabino appy, a varnish roan appy, or she could be graying out. I lean more toward graying out. Especially if her daddy was gray, it is very likely that she will end up being gray too. I won't comment on confo as it is hard to tell from the pix but she is a very cute girl and I love her blue eye and a half. ;)

She is adorable!

Her color is gorgeous, it looks like she was dipped in a glaze.
