I can't tell I've had her for 2 years and her coat color hasn't changed. In the Winter she gets a little darker than the summer but other than that I can't tell.

Thanks for all the replies! The old owners didn't know a lot about horses the only thing they knew was she was a mustang pony mix if that helps any

How old is this horse? If she's older than 5, then gray would have definitely made an obvious appearance by this point.

I agree with the concensus that she's either classic roan or expressing sabino roan or maybe a combination of both. The only way to say for certain which it was would be to have her color tested. But, if you don't want to bother with that, you can just call her a blue roan and you would be technically correct.

She's a pretty girl.
Thank you!! She is 6 years old, I'm not too filmilar with greys so I don't know how to tell, is there certain areas that lighten with age?

She looks a lot like Coronado's dam who is a smoky black sabino with no roan:



That's not to say your mare couldn't be roan as well, but sabino is DEFINITELY present.
I would say that is her coloring, she does sometimes have the hues of brown in her coat and tail. I've never heard of a black sabino before thank you!

Look at the face of this horse. It shows what I was talking about - the head is usually one of the first part of the body to show grey. You can also see the silvery colour at the bottom of the tail, another significant sign of grey. Interestingly, this horse is also showing the beginning of a "fake" sock, which many greys show.

If thats so then I do agree with you, she must be a sabino or something. Her face marking hasn't gotten any lighter around the edges in the past two years, atl least not noticeably. Thank you for the help! :D
