Anyone had a roan that one year didn't roan?

Maybe stupid but I have only just realized that my Strawberry roan stallion didn't roan ever much last year like he has the other years. Has anyone ever seen this before that can explain why he didn't roan as much last year?

To me it looks like he still did roan a bit. How much sun have you guys had so far? The sun can also be a factor

We have a 23 yo welsh that typically roans out a good bit in the summer but this past summer he did not. He just looked like a chestnut.

How old is your mini? I noticed with ours that in their first year they get alomst white during the winter, next winter a bit less, and as adults they do show roaning, but it isn't as dramatic any more.

The strawberry roan welsh A my kids had seemed to have more white in the winter as he got older but remained the same in the summer throughout his entire life.
