Mollie's papers have her registered as Sorrel.
When we bought her she was definitely a Chestnut.
Each year she has gotten a bit darker, and the few white hairs she had on her flanks when we bought her as a four year old are spreading.
She also has a few perfectly circular, bright white dots all over her body. From what I've read about birdcatcher spots I don't think that fits here... hers literally appear over night and she's had them for many years without them ever going away.
She has some darker "brindling" on her hind legs/butt.
So basically, for all you color experts out there, what color is my horse?
I should also mention that her mane is considered flaxen (I think) at this point... she also has horizontal white stripes at the top of her tail. I'm not sure whether or not she's a true roan, or someone else mentioned Sabino? I don't even know if that's possible. All your guesses are as good as mine :)
Lastly, a shameless plug for myself, in the pursuit of chocolate. Lauren at She Moved to Texas is having a March Madness contest and Mollie and I have made it to the second round!! If you like this blog or if you like my sassy red mare please send a vote our way :)
