    The buckskin stallion has also sired another roan, a black based one.

    Geesh, that is just too weird. My mares sire is Rolex President. He is in that data base. Would you mind looking to see if he might have been able to pass on a roan gene?

    I am going to go with "definitely possible". The dam's sire's dam is roan, and the dam and the dam's sire are both palomino, so both could be minimal. Given how minimal your mare looks, it could be that she is indeed roan.

    However, maybe I should put a disclaimer in here. Red based horses (chestnut etc) are prone to random white hairs. I would not expect them to be seasonal like your mare, or to be as evenly spread all over her, but that doesn't mean it is impossible. I still am leaning toward minimal roan though.

    Yay!! Lol I've been thinking of getting her tested, do you think it would be worth the money? It's my curiosity that's killing me mostly!! Lol Would a minimally expressed roan still show up as a roan? Probably huh.

    Another question. How do you know the colors of these horses? I know some have pics and some say what color they are, but some don't. Like Sweet Gold, the mare you were talking about. (Maybe I'm looking at the wrong dam) lol

    SWEET GOLD
    B ro XaJNphfDQTVsDyXb 1958
    QUARTER HORSE

    That tells me her name, her colour, some random number I can make no sense of, her year of birth and her breed.

    I also noticed when I had a second look, that the same mare's parent couldn't have produced her if they are those colours lol. Her sire is chestnut and her dam is palomino, but she is either bay, black, blue, brown, buckskin roan (guessing from the B in her listing). All of those colours are black based, so her parents, being both red based, could not have produced her. Just something interesting lol.

    Again, you can see the info right here

    This is on the all breed's page.

    Ha, I guess I didn't notice the B ro. I knew Rolex's said pali...thats really strange. Yeah and sweet baby is out if a black and brown??...oh heck, these horses are so old, back then there might not have been such a thing as registering a roan! Who knows lol

    Her sire is N/N so there is no way it could be passed on. Good eye though :)
