    How would I tell if she is a true roan or a varnish?

    Now that the colour gurus have chimed in with the G-D given expertise I can rest in the fact that I now know what a purple roan is.
    I was thinking liver chestnut and now that I know I got it right I can celebrate.
    Anyone else read up on the colour threads and siop after NDappy or Chillaa dispenses with their "rulings"? Shalom

    I didn't know there was such a thing as "purple roans" I just can't get over how if you look at her in the sun, she absolutely looks purple. There's no question. If she's not a "purple roan" I honestly don't know what would be.

    Technically the only thing she is, is a chestnut roan. But people all have their name variations lol

    I've heard brown/"seal bay" roans referred to as purple roan. I don't think it's a widely used term either way, and I can see how a liver chestnut could fit that description!

    The only thing I have that shows her purpliness the best is a little video of us trotting her in the round pen. Once I figure out youtube, I'll see if I can post it.

    Here's the little video from my cell phone of her trotting. When she goes to the far side of the round pen especially, she looks really purple to me. This is the closest thing to match the color I see in real life when I'm with her.
