I wish I could have seen her 3 yr old baby. The guy tells me he's a blue roan. But Izzy is a gray (base color black I think) and the sire is chestnut, so I know he's almost certainly a gray too. People really have trouble with roan vs. gray. But if you learn to look for white on the head, it becomes really easy to tell the difference. Grays usually have white hairs peeking from the center of the tail too.
