    You're right in that rabicano does not relate to roan. Separate things going on.

    The black filly that turned blue roan - how old is she currently? I would love to see a picture of her - I bet that she is grey not roan...

    I'm curious about a picture as well. Were either parents of your appy roan?

    Colour descriptions like that are very regional and have little to do with the genetics behind it. They are descriptive of the phenotype.

    Rabicano is a gene that causes white ticking (often mistaken for roan) that concentrates on the flank and barrel. It also causes a coontail. It's also mistaken for brindle because the ticking often forms into lines and appears stripey.

    This is a pretty loud rabicano:


    I'm also guessing that the OP's second horse is a varnish roan, which will change from year to year because appaloosa genes are crazy. There's one Appy at my barn that hasn't had any indication of varnish the last 2 years other than ticking that you would typically see on a chestnut horse anyway. This year, she could be easily be mistaken for a minimal roan.

    The mare gave every indication on being a plain bay, no white even. The stallion was a(I think) liver chestnut with 4 high whites, a blaze and a blanket. Appy genetics are.....a bit crazy. I know neither parent was grey or conventional roan, so I guessed varnish

    I sold her as a two year old, I'll have to see if I can dig up pictures, but I'm not sure I can. She was sired by a blue roan stallion, out of a grey mare, but according to her new owners, she is still a roan.
