What color would you call him?
 
Well i cant find a photo from the side... but he has lots of white hairs in his flanks and white hairs on the top of his tail... but what color would you call him?

Racabino would be his pattern.

A picture from the side would be way better.
I thought my horse was a bay, but she's brown(:

He's a bay.

CLaPorte432 09-09-2012 08:40 AM

Sometimes its hard to distinguish bay from brown until winter time. So i wouldnt rule out brown quite yet.

And you didnt say anything about his base color. Which would be the bay/brown. Roaning at the flanks and white at the top of the tail is the racabino pattern.

This horse however, does not have racabino now that i see pictures. I dont see any white at all. Then again, they are not the best pictures. Too far away.

Brown with rabicano.

Don't know what racabino is. :wink:

Why would you say rabicano if you don't know what it is? I agree that I don't see any white at all. Seems to be just a bay/brown. I've seen very minimal rabicanos but the top of the tail always gives it away.
