    I was thinking maybe a palomino roan. Does anyone know? 20180625_114601.jpg

  4. Looks like a yellow roan, aka palomino roan. Could just be a palomino in seriously bad coat condition, can't really tell from the photos.

    Looks like a red roan to me.
     
  6. Sorrel roan would have a red mane and tail, rather than blond. Bay roan would have a black mane and tail. There is some possibility of a flaxen sorrel roan, but usually the points would be darker and more red.

    When you look closely at the coat, is there one solid color, or two or more colors mixed in? If more than one color, are the different colors seen on each hair shaft, or are individual hairs each one color?

    Do you know the breed?
    Not totally sure, but judging by the way the face mottles, I think it's a Paint with few markings, but I could be wrong.
    Sabino?
