Constantly changing..roans :)

This is my little guy..He constantly is changing colors on me, unfortunately i don't have any photos of him in the winter. In the winter he is almost completely bay, these photos are from spring and summer.

Roans almost always get dark in the winter. My BO used to have a brown roan mare that looked like brown rabicano in the winter. I had no idea she was a roan until she shed.

Not exactly relevant, but I a forming a theory that bay roans have more of a ´who, me?´ fake-innocent look than other colours... Anyone with me?

Definitely...he has a bad habit of using his mouth to 'explore'..and when he gets in trouble he has this startled expression like 'What?!! I didn't do anything!'
