Blue and white?
My mare has Blue and White patches with a few brown spots. Is she classed as a Skewbald/Pinto or is there a specific name for this colour?

Can't give any suggestions on what your horse's color is without pictures.

Without pictures, the first thing that I imagined was a My Little Pony. Ha. Please post some pictures.

WELCOME to the forum!

Photos would be very helpful. If you need help learning how to post them, let us know.

Im going to assume blue patches with brown spots would be a blue roan pinto (depending on breed) or possible bay roan. As the others said, pictures are best.

Is this the mare in question?

If so, she's a gray tobiano, who will eventually turn either white or fleabitten (aquiring more very small, dark freckles) in her "blue" patches. And she's also not a Thoroughbred, or at least not a purebred one.

How in the worl can you know that?!? Not questioning you at all, just impressed!:clap:

Ha! TB's don't come in spots like that--no tobiano in the breed. :wink:

Doh! Easy as that! Still impressed!

Thanks guys! And yes that is my mare. I know she's not a purebred thoroughbred - only put thoroughbred as there was no option for cross breeds. She is 3/4 thoroughbred and 1/4 welsh cob. Are you certain she will change colour? As I met her 12 year old mum who was still blue and white. Unless you mean she will change in her much later life?
