This is the newest member of our horse family. We were told he is full blood arabian BUT I've never seen his coloring before on an arabian. He has very arab features such as nose scoop, head and neck with the up held tail. Just having trouble pin pointing if he is in fact mixed with something or if he is full blood what color he should be called. Thanks for your help in advance!

He is fleabitten grey. He is a grey horse with little flecks of his original coat colour. It is very common in Arabians :-)

Also he has a pink mark on his nose which I've heard is not an arab feature? And yes his mane is yellow/orange...all the time.

The pink mark is where he would have a snip if his hair was dark and covered his nose. White markings have pink skin. As for his mane and tail being yellow, that is probably stained that way. A lot of work can get the colour back to white, try searching in the grooming section :-)

ok I'll look that up! Thanks. What about the yellow/orange mane? Normal or...

Chiilaa 06-15-2012 11:31 PM

Normal. As I said, probably staining.

ok thanks! First white horse so I'm a little green on the subject! thanks again!

Chiilaa 06-15-2012 11:32 PM

No worries :-)

After just a few minutes searching I found other flea bitten arabs with gold, yellow, bay and orange manes that are always that color. It may just be his genetics but I'm going to work on it anyway.

They have pink noses. The yellow is just accumulated dirt and age.. good shampooing and blueing will help lift out the yellow.
