Grey is ok too :)

I still haven't picked a real name for him yet. I've just always called him "The Big" lol because he's such a big boy. He should finish out at 17 h!

Any name suggestions?

wth. I went back and read the OP. Instead of 3, I read it as him being almost 6. o.O I don't even know how, but I completely discounted gray because of it. Deeeerrrp. Moar caffeine for Po.

This is a pic of Silver Design, who is clearly grey and not roan.

I would say there is a good chance he is actually grey as well, as roans will not have white hair on their faces or below the knees/hocks typically (other than markings.) And it does not affect their manes or tails either.

You have a really pretty BLUE roan. It doesn't matter if there are some brown spots. =D

He looks blue roan to me. Some roans can indeed have white hairs in the mane and tail.

What color are the sire and dam?
