He looks like a bay roan. I used to have a little mare that was this color. She was out of my paint mare by a blue roan stud.

Wow, what a unique color . I would call him a sooty buckskin roan. The yellowing on his face really gives him away as a buckskin.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I agree, buckskin or a muddier bay roan ;)

bay roan if his face darkens in the winter, if it's only yellowish in the summer then wouldn't that just be sun-bleached?

That's what I had assumed had happened to his face, sun bleaching. I guess I have been really lucky, my horse doesn't bleach out. That little mare that was a bay roan did once, but she was a really dark bay to begin with, so even bleached she was still visibly a bay roan.

Other than the grey from the roaning, what color is his body? He appears to have a lot of roaning, so it's kind of difficult to tell from the picture.

their isn't really much colour too him, other than grey. he's legs below the knee are black and his face is changable, some summers his shoulders go quite dun but it doesn't happen every year, i've had him 5 years now and every year he goes a slightly different colour.
