Mystery solved

Our latest monthly mystery horse is a gorgeous part-bred Arab/TB called Tanlee Romeo. He has a chocolate coat that is lighter than most smokey blacks (black buckskins) but more evenly coloured that most dark buckskins. He also has a very large blaze, four high socks and a white tail tip. White markings on the end of the tail are often a sign that splashed white is present, but splashed white is extremely rare in the Arabian and Thoroughbred breeds.

To identify Romeo's colours and patterns we tested for red/black, agouti, cream, silver, dun/d1, W20, SW1 and frame overo.
