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
I thought that it may hide on a pally but wasnt 100% 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.
I know I was using hide in the same way we should of said like blend or something.

Granted I haven't seen a whole lot of palomino roans, but the ones I have seen have certainly had the visible pattern.

Yea I could see how visable it is on a darker pally but the really light pale ones might be harder.

Mama's shoulder looks like it has something going on.

This one looks a little more on the rabicano side to me, though I could buy that he's true roan.

Joy does have silver hairs scattered throughout her coat but they are hard to see cause she is a lighter golden pally not a dark pally. If you stare her down you an see it. And since her daddy was a red roan it's possible. Her momma is a palomino like her.

He could very well have inherited the roan gene from his gf. What ever he is, he's nice.

VERY Minimal Roan on Palomino (Results came today 4/22) | Equine Color Genetics

Roan can be difficult to see on palomino, for sure. Not always, but it can be.

Thank you I actually was breeding more for conformation that color but a pretty color would be an extra bonus. He is built just the way I wanted him to be now I just want him to be atleast 15 hands. I prefer talker horses since I'm 5"9 I feel awkward on Joy though it may be cause I'm used to my 16 hand TB paint.
