What color is he?
 
I've had many people tell me many different things and I would like to know what y'all think? Now that I think about it, I've only really seen one other horse that looked like him and it was still of a little bit. But I'm about to sell him and I would really like to know :-)

He is a sorrel/chestnut (whichever you prefer) with sabino roaning. It's a common color in TWHs and I believe they refer to it as "lit up roan".
In other words, he's not a true red roan. He just has lots of roaning from the sabino gene. The sabino also accounts for his white markings.

Like AnnaLover said, just a loud chestnut sabino.

Would that be the same for this horse?

This was a gelding I used to own and I always wondered about his color.
As far as I know he was out of a almost completely white paint stallion. I know nothing else from his breeding.

BarrelRacer67, you have a very pretty horse!

Poseidon 03-15-2013 11:48 PM

Yep. Chestnut sabino too. I wonder if the stallion he was by was a maximum sabino?

GallopingGuitarist 03-15-2013 11:51 PM

Thanks! I never met the parents of him, and I only have what color his sire was because we happened to meet his 'breeder' (they had a mare...).

Yeah I bet the white horse may have been similar to mine.
Pepper is a chestnut max sabino
