Tobiano and.... What?
I'm sure your all getting sick of seeing my horses on here, haha, but I was wondering about the roaning on the side of my paint mare. What pattern would like be associated with? Or is this something tobiano does? Also, she would be considered a brown, right? I know she looks black in the picture, but she's not lol.

Just looks like sunbleaching to me, personally :P

Those are just dapples/sun bleaching as the previous poster said. Dark brown/black horses often turn into a red-brown color when in the sun often.

I'm no expert, but I'd figure that the shading around her hair color is actually her skin color. Most Paints have multicolor skin and sometimes when they shed out into their summer coats you can see the skin underneath. The white flecks in her coat seeing as it does not look very consistent could simply be random or acquired markings. But I don't really know too much about color, so I could be wrong. ;3

But I don't even know what exactly I'm supposed to be looking at. xD

Haha, if you look at the line where the brown meets the white on her belly in the first picture, the white roans out into the brown like it's smudged almost. I only ask because it's the only place on her body that does this!

Could have Sabino or maybe frame in her

Kayella 06-15-2012 04:49 PM

Sabino is what is causing the roaning. The blue edging around the spot on her rump is referring to as mapping, or "halos" on appys.

I, however, want to think she's a brown. If that were sunbleaching, she'd be bleached on her back or anywhere else where the sun is most. The flank would be one of the last areas to sun bleach.

I would say dark brown. Blacks dont fade. Now comes the people telling me I am wrong.. :)

NdAppy 06-15-2012 07:11 PM

Blacks can and do fade.

The mare appears to be brown.

The "roaning" is typical of tobianos IMPO.

I debate the same color issue with my paint. I know it is hard to tell in this picture, but she has the same blend in color...mapping?.....I was thinking it was the skin being the darker color under the white hair.

I have been told she is black and white....just not a true black. I have also been told she is brown and white and that she is just a tri-colored tobiano having an abvious three colors. Her mane and tail are black with some red highlights and wherever her legs have color it is black....her body is a managerie of browns and black.....If she were solid I would say she would be a dark bay. So, who knows...she is all mixed up. :lol:
