I beg to differ, ponyboy. IMHO a horse can have the Pangare gene and the sabino gene all in one. I still look at him and see Belgian/Pangare coloring above the white stockings that is actually very even.
Yeah, Blue, if you look really close, you can see the irregular, very tall stockings. On his back legs, they extend all the way up nearly to his stifle and plus the splatter looking white on his face. All signs of a pinto gene.
The horse is a definate roan in my opinion. You said he didn't look like a typical roan-- Look up roan clydesdales. They look anything but typical. Most roan clydesdales I've seen don't go by the typical "dark points, lighter body" rule.
