Palomino Roan ???

I was at a dude ranch in Georgia a couple of years ago and saw the most beautiful colored horse I have ever seen. They said he was a palomino roan when I asked. I wish I had a picture. He was gold, with like flecks of white, but with like a red tint as well. I was just wondering if anyone had a horse with a color like this. If so, I'd love to see pictures!!! Anyone know how this color would happen??

That horse is pretty, but this horse was more white than palomino. I didn't even think he was palomino until they said something. It is so hard to describe. Think of more a mix between a palomino and red roan.

Could you have perhaps been looking at a palomino based grey?

Probably was a flaxen chesnut with roan and the ranch owner assumed it was palomino. Perhaps something similar to this?

Like that! Closer to the bottom one, and slightly redder, but that was it.

Palomino roan happens when you have the coat colour modifiers cream and roan on a chestnut. If the palomino base colour is dark you'll get an obvious palomino roan but if the palomino is a light one it could be hard to pick the roan because the horse would just look like a very light paly with slightly darker legs and head.
