    Might as well give up...most Appys have no "end up" color...

    Some part of me wishes he would stay the color he is now with a nice "crisp" blanket and another part of me hopes he roans/varnishes/greys out some. Blah.. :P

Of course unless one or both parents are homozygous, there is always a chance a foal may be a true solid...
    Oh, the two roans I've owned and seen when they were born were both solid except they both had the "skunk" tail so I just figured that was the same with all roans.

    A lot of roan foals are born with a foal coat that masks the roan till they shed out the following spring.

    I'm not a roan expert, though...have never had one...

    She looks like a bay coat base IMO. My idea of a brown horse is one that looks almost black with the lighter muzzle and lighter flank area.

    Browns can and do vary in shade just as much as any other color. They are not limited to mostly black bodies with lightening around the muzzle and flanks...
