Let's See Those Ever-Changing Roans!

I have a mare who is a bay roan, and boy do those roans change with the seasons! Now, in winter, she looks like any old bay. I have a horse that I'm training who is a darker bay, and they look like twins in the winter. (Aside from the great height difference, as my mare is pony sized and the other horse is easily 16 hands. ) The mare is Gypsy, who is about 22 years old. Here are some pictures of her drastic changes. I would love to see other roans and how much they change from winter/summer.

Holy Cow! Are you sure nobody's switching out horses on you?
She looks really different! I know roans are notorious for such, I don't own one so I can't contribute but I can't wait to see who posts.

My bay roan sabino mare in the summer.

And in the winter, taken just a few days ago, eating next to her sabino colt.

She is almost Black right now... you almost can't tell she is a blue roan.

My baby doesn't even look like the same horse. Of course, she's gotten bigger because she's not even 2 yet!
