A while back, I was reading a post Andrea from over at The Reeling (http://uncatchablenumber257.blogspot.ca/) made about her little mare Imogen. She was looking into the colouring of her mare as she was a bay with some interesting characteristics. She had white hair roaning throughout her coat, but wasn't a true roan. There was also some white tail and mane hairs (skunk or coon tail). After she did some research, she discovered that her little mare was a rabicano bay!
After reading that post, I wondered whether Koda may be a rabicano as he has the same type of roaning over his body (more so around the flank and lower barrel). He doesn't have too much white on his tail, and even less throughout his mane so may not be a true rabicano bay.
|Roaning along the flank|
|Minor to no white (most likely be more if his herdmates|
hadn't pulled his tail for him over the winter...)
|No white in this forelock!|
In other news, I'm 95% sure I've nailed down our summer competition schedule while keeping the budget in mind, and we're already working towards our first outing - our first dressage show! Stay tuned for updates.
