    That's considered Roan.

    He is a sabino.

    In roans the head and lower legs are colored, not white. "Roan-sabino" is incorrect since sabino patterning has nothing to do with the roan gene.

    If he were panagre he would not have white hairs throughout his whole coat and the lightening on his lower parts would have more even edges.

    Rabicano is just an old-fashioned word for sabino.

    The dappling is caused by his base color and not related to the white patterning.

    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.

    Isn't Sabino a type of paint? I don't think that horse is painted. :)

    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.

    Looks like a sabino to me! :)

    Yep same here I see sabino.

    In agreeance with sabino.

    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.

    No it's not, Rabicano is different than sabino.
