Is Jet a Bay Roan?

I think colt Jet is a Bay Roan. I don't have any experience in seeing young roan horses. What do you think? His legs are turning black his head is turning read and his back is turing silver.

What color is the sire? If he's not roan, the colt can't be roan. That's a bad picture of his back (at least on my monitor), but it almost looks like he's balding up there with a skin condition, rather than changing color...

yeah its not a great pic cuase it was with my cell phone. Its short silver hairs he doesn't have a skin condition. The undercoat on his body not just there is also sliver colored. Daddy is a buckskin but the Palomino's daddy was a red roan.

Its so hard for me to tell when they r that young, lol....I heard or read somewhere, that their coats arent their adult color until around 2...i think? And it seems to prove true so far for the babies on our farm, but it doesnt apply to paint horses, lol... roans seem to get more white hairs the older they get.

Roan is dominant, therefore the sire or dam must be roan. If neither is roan, the colt is not roan. As a dominant, it can't "skip" a generation...

Face the Mumma is a palomino, and it is her sire that is roan. IME, roan often hides on pallys, so I wouldn't write it off just yet

OP - It can be hard to tell until a few sheds are done if a foal is going to roan. You can test for it if you can't wait

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Yeah roan does hide in pallys i've seen it before. I dunno they are definitely silver hairs. I'm thinking about having him tested. I'm trying really hard to be patient.

Just wanted to clarify here, that I used the word 'hide' but didn't mean it was not there. What I meant was that on palomino, it is often hard to tell if a horse is roan or not, and usually has to be tested to be sure. It's not that the gene isn't having an effect, it's that the white hairs caused blend really well with the creamy coat.
