Bahahaha that's awesome. I didnt even check to see if they had a site. I've never heard of them so obviously that says something. Not that I'm an expert or anything but you know the well known barns in your area. It's a shame though because I REALLY liked this filly. I guess you don't necessarily require intelligence to breed.

Yeah I went and checked out the barn and sure enough, none of their horses have done diddly crap but breed. I don't know why I'm surprised. They seem to have more accomplishments training dogs.

It would be pretty easy for them to prove she's roan instead of gray if they wanted to. They don't even post her name, so you can't check her pedigree to see if either parent was gray or roan. Even a baby picture could prove it (if she were in fact roan)

That would involve actually understanding how roan and grey work, LOL.

The best way to tell the difference between a roan and a grey is that greys get grey heads roads have the solid base color head.
So a red road horse would have a chestnut head starting at the throat latch it will road out. So a blue roan will have a black head this mare has a grey head.

Looks roan to me. She may have started out with a darker head but a grey's mane and tail is close in color to the body color. This filly's are much darker as are her lower legs.
