    Rbarlo - If you are going to tout him as a roan and use him as an example of a roan, you need to have a picture that shows him as roan. Being as you don't, we can only see that he does not look roan.

    I can't even see a picture of him! And I would love to.

    Sometimes there are exceptions as to what a horse should look like for what it is.

    Edit to add:
    What about this guy? If you just took a quick look, would you say yes or no to roan? He IS a true/classic roan btw...just doesn't have normal expression of it. I've seen him in person several times.

    And not saying her pony is a special case like that...just that it happens. Heck, I can't even see his picture..LOL

    Blackcricket - I don't like to make observations horse's colors off of one picture, and wouldn't say more on the one you posted other than he is a buckskin. The best way to say for sure what color a horse is outside of testing is to have many pictures over the course of a year and in different lights. This is to see the coat in winter and summer as well as low and high lights. Most horses though, do not need that many pictures to get an idea of their true color.

    Not the best pic of him

    And his dad (think he's a "true" roam)

    And that right there is a perfect example of why I say pictures from different times of the year.

    If I could find more pictures of that horse in various times of the year I would post them. I've seen him at various times and he just looks buckskin, no matter what time of the year (he lives just up the road from me, and at one point I had a horse at their barn for training and they run a local 4-H club I helped out with for a while). His sire was the same way, roan, but not a typical expression of it.

    Those tend to be the exception to the rules. Always a few out there. Hence why it is said that it is not typical.
        10-21-2011, 01:52 PM
    Yup. I think it is common with this particular line of horses with that buckskin. I never would have known he was roan had I not seen a handful of his weanling true roan foals and their solid bay and chestnut dams!
    His name is Sunfrost Bronsin and his sire is PC Bronsin.

    I hate judging color from winter pictures of horses the most--especially roans as they get so much darker usually!
        10-21-2011, 02:19 PM
    Palominos and buckskins tend to be harder to identify as roan unless they are very obvious because they usually have lighter hairs, so it makes them just look lighter overall.

    Rbarlo, the reason your pony has lighter legs is because he has a chestnut base and their legs tend to get lighter as they go down.
