What color would you say this filly is?
 
She's a year old purebred Arabian. Her dam is bay (below)

I believe her sire is also bay. (the filly is not mine)

She was born this color and hasn't changed any. The tail was always a mixture of black and white. There is no white flecking on her face, just on her sides and on her chest.

The owner wanted to register her with the AAHA as roan, but roan is not a recognized color in Arabians and consequently the AAHA registered her as bay.

Her coloring has always intrigued me.

Wow, thats really cool looking! I'm no color/genetics expert at all, so my best guess would be roan. Or maybe rabicano??

Roan isn't an acceptable color in Arabs, apparently. They tried to register her as roan and it was rejected. I had to look up rabicano and I think you might be right. I had not heard of that term before.

Looks like Rabicano to me :)

Bay rabicano for sure. I love rabicano when it is loud.

Thanks. I love learning new things. I had never heard of rabicano before now. Very cool. :)

I adore the skunk tail that is so common with the rabicano gene as well. It gives them an even more unique look. She's a cute little filly.

Unique coloring all around with the combo of wild bay and rabicano.

I wouldn't say wild bay Chiilaa. Looks like normal bay. The black legs tend to stay low while young. Betting as a 2-year-old she would have "regular" bay legs.

She's a brat. She chewed off my mare's tail and I'm still not very happy about it. It looks like someone took a weed whacker to it.

eek! Not so good about the tail chewing, but she's a beautiful filly :) We would call her a Bay Roan in Ireland, as nobody around here would really use Rabicano. Just beautiful colourings, really rare :D
