It seems most are in agreeance, haha. In my area a red roan has a bay base, and a strawbrerry roan has a chestnut/sorrel base. Blue roan is a black base.

pretty much.. but.. the gene is roan and to some if you say bay with roaning, it means something different than bay roan. If you say "roaning" many people think of that as a broader term encompassing the rabicano roaning as well, such as exhibited by this mare. FV Alarazzl Rose by FV Fantasy Farwa x Razzldazzl Rose . She's obviously not a chestnut (strawberry) roan. She does have rabicano and sabino though on a flaxen chestnut base.

Around here and almost everybody I know calls Chestnut- Strawberry Roan, and Bays Bay Roan or Red Roan.
