Interesting!

Leads me to wonder if the horse at our barn that I thought was a bay roan is actually a bay rabicano. He is a bright bay with white ticking along the bottom of his jaw, down the bottom of his neck, and along the bottom of his body, but not on his legs.

Thanks for posting this, so helpful! The only thing I noticed was they missed smokey cream, but that's not a big deal. I'm with A knack for horses, I might have to print this out myself :)

Decent chart, but there are few things that I know are incorrect on it.

There are several obvious mistakes on this chart. A strawberry roan and a red roan are actually 2 different colors. A strawberry roan has a chestnut base coat color with white hair intermingled while a red roan has a bay base coat color with white hair intermingled. Also the pinto patterns can occur on any color. Duns and buckskins are the same thing except for the dorsal stripe on the dun. I wouldn't use this as my primary resource.

Strawberry roan and red roan are the same genetically, just like sorrel and chestnut are the same genetically.

Chestnut + roan = red roan/strawberry roan (your preference on which you use)
Bay + roan = bay roan

Buckskin and dun are not the same, they are caused by different dilutions which is why you can also have dunskins which are horses with both of those dilutions.

Bay + cream = buckskin
Bay + dun = dun/bay dun (your preference on term)
Bay + cream + dun = dunskin

While pinto patterns occur on any color base, the chart was simply stating which color base they demonstrated each pattern on. ;)
