Is this horse grey?
This mare was for sale in a craiglist ad. She's a registered saddlebred. The seller doesn't specify her color, and I have NO idea as to what color she is. Is she grey or what? I'd love to know.
That certainly is unusual. I'm really curious now.
That certainly is interesting. My first thought was OMG that horse is giraffe colored! But it looks close to a pattern that's seen with traditionally with dapple grays, it's just that this horse has a chestnut base as opposed to a black one.
I'm interested to hear what others think though. It's definitely a horse of a different color :lol:
There is a discussion on this horses already that can be found here - http://www.horseforum.com/horse-colo.../color-114396/
If there is a registered Appalousa, then THAT is the color. I think he's a red roan, myself.
FYI the Craigslist ad states that the horse is a papered saddlebred.
In the picture of the black based grey that Ink shared, the white areas are the circle parts of the dapple pattern with the dark body hairs making a lace pattern. The chestnut has what appears to be a white lace pattern over the entire body. What interests me the most is how the face is colored. That isn't a normal coloring, especially when you look at what happens up by the forelock. Compare that to a giraffe, I don't think this is a roan or a grey. IMO
i still think the horse is regular chesnut with lacing and some kind of pinto gene to create the bald face.
Could it be from fungus? I know a lot of lacing is caused from fungus.
