That pony is definitely not a roan. Aside from being severely overweight, he looks like a flaxen chestnut, maybe silver bay, but I can't see his eyelashes in the pictures.

So, the title of this thread should read "Bella - My registered Paint".

She is cute.

I agree with this. This is the first chance that I had to look at the pony. Not roan, and very overweight.

I am not seeing silver personally. I see flaxen red as well.

I would call this one a chestnut with some sort of KIT mutation (sabino or dominant white...) and the roaning is coming from that...but I'd also wonder about splash on this one.
Neat patterning on her though. Bet it's a pain to keep clean!

I would not classify them as true "roans" either but many of those sabino horses marked like that have been registered & called that for years.You see it often in the Sullivan Heathen lines.

That's because registries are so unbelievably behind on color genetics that they are wrong 90% of the time on things like that, which is why we usually mention in threads not to go by what registries say.

And the average horse owner probably could care less about what color their horse actually is.

Which is why you will see people refer to sabino roan as sabino roan, and classic roan as classic roan. Sabino roan presents very differently to classic roan, and is not the same.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

So true.You can't believe the color history on alot of horses. You see so many classified wrong: Buckskins that are actually duns,roans that are actually greys,tobianos that are actually Toveros,Duns that are dunskins,blacks that are really brown....the list goes

he is definitely roan that's him in his winter coat and he isn't obese like I said he is in his winter coat

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.
