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.
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.
