So what would she be considered?

I am told sabino as she has roaning throughout her coat.Her face markings are all black with a bald face.Her tail has white hairs at the base of the tail(near her butt) so she might be rabicano? What would you consider her?

Is sabino or rabicano a desired trait or not?

Is the roaning through the whole patch of black, or just at the edges?

Gidget 02-18-2011 07:38 PM

it's throughout her back..especially in the summer.
Up near her face and neck it's solid black with the roaning around the edges....

Chiilaa 02-18-2011 07:49 PM

In the spot on her side, how does the roaning appear?

Gidget 02-18-2011 07:53 PM

It is mostly black but it does have white in it

here it is when clipped

Gidget 02-18-2011 07:55 PM

btw,I know I DID a horrible job ion her clip please no comments on the disaster.

I wasn't going to say a word I swear =P

To be honest, I am leaning toward sabino over rabicano. Rab should be denser on the barrel, and usually has some barring in it.

Gidget 02-18-2011 08:09 PM

lol :P

Yea,I clipped her a night before a show thinking it would be quick and easy and I ended up bawling my eyes out and too scared to show her in halter :P

Alright,so rabicano has stripes down the rib cage or just looks like lots of roaning in that area?

Wow that url is huge :(

It tends to give a barring effect and be heavier on the barrel than anywhere else, as you can see with this boy.

She looks Sabino + Splash to me.
