What colour/genes do you see in him?
 
Found this mustang for adoption and thought he looks kinda cool. To me he looks mike maybe he's a strawberry roan pinto with sabino... But wanted to see what everyone else thinks

I'd say he's not carrying roan, just sabino. Perhaps another pinto gene like splash, but I'm not great at differentiating between the pinto patterns.

Definitely sorrel, definitely sabino, probably not roan.

I like his look, he's compact and stout and heavy.

Personally, I'd test him for frame with how wide the top of his blaze is and then the concentration of white on the right side of his neck.

I'm debating on whether it would be sabino or maybe dominant white. Chiilaa's better with those two than I am, so I'll leave it at that.

Don't they trim their feet? :lol:

Not usually, which seems odd to me if they advertise them as "pick up all feet".

I'm not sure, but I think they do a quick chop job (if needed) when they first capture them...at the same time as they run them up in the chutes to brand and vaccinate them.
