She looks like a normal deep red roan with possibly varnish to me..

Wow, on my computer screen, she really looks purple in that video! What a sheen on her as well. Love the way it fluxuates from silver through lavender to purple and back.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

She does look purple!
I say call her a Purple Chestnut, and officially make that a thing!

I know! It's really weird. I've seen people refer to roans as "pink" but not mine. :) I've got a horse of a different color.

I've always considered a purple roan to be a seal brown/dark bay with roan.
I's call her a strawberry roan :)

Gorgeous mare none the less

We had a mahogany bay but his coat was much darker and more that 'punk purple' hair color look. Love the unusual coat colors! You have a lovely horse. 😃

Thank you! Now I'm just trying to decide what color saddle blanket will look best on her. :)
