I was just curious if there was a special term for chestnut horses that are so deep red they look wine colored.
My girl is clearly a roan with some fun corn spots, and blonde feathers on her feet, but her head and upper neck are so deep red it makes her roaning take on a purple or lavender hue.
When I adopted her, she was more white, and over the summer more red. I haven't seen her full winter coat in yet since it is hard to reach her trainer's in the snow, but she seems really dark again.
Will my roan always be a horse of a different color?
