What pattern and color?
 
What is the pattern called on her hip?

And what color would you call her? :)

Yep. and do you have a better picture of her rump? looks like there may possibly be a bit of dappling

Exactly! The dark patch on the hip is just a concentration of the sooty gene.

Same for the dark spots in the mane.

She outgrew her gray mane.

I am not a color person, nor do I know the terminology, bores me to death, however I love your horse's two toned mane!

BubblesBlue 05-19-2012 11:48 PM

Thank you, me too! She actually started out a plain chestnut and became this beautiful little thing! [though not so little anymore! xD]
I was really blessed/lucky with her. :D
