    Default Calling all color experts, odd color

    Can you tell me about a horse that is a reg bay Tb, but she has white, red and black in her tail and white flecks throughout her coat. Actually a lot of white in her tail.

    No she's not turning grey

    Have you seen this before and does she possibly carry a gene for odd color?

    I'd also hazard a guess that this is a roaning pattern, or maybe rabicano. Any pictures?

    I agree with the above, is it a Red Roan?

    It would be helpful if you posted a picture.

    Yes, I looked up Rabicano and I would say definately a Rabicano. Most of the photos of rabicano are chestnut and this gal is dark bay, but lots and lots of white in tail and flecks throughout the body.

    No photos at this time, but your info helped me.
