Yeah, me too. Dark green may be the best pick for her.

Years ago we had a horse. I think he was supposed to be a bay roan, but minus the black, no matter how you looked at him his coat looked PURPLE... I have never seen another horse like him. I'll see if I can google up a horse close to his colour here

She's a looker, that's for sure.

I consider any chestnut-based roan to be chestnut/red/strawberry roan.
Bay with roan is bay/red roan (I personally don't call chestnut roans "red roan").
Brown with roan, to me, is purple roan.

I would love to see more pictures. This horse is much nicer than the ones the BLM used to bring around her for adoption. How tall is she?

I just wanted to say that I am hopelessly jealous of your purple horse!

Here's a picture of me next to her, you can get a sense of her size. She's a good sized girl for a mustang. I'm 5'6''. Anything much taller than she is, and I have issues getting up in the saddle without a crane.

And here's another picture of her. This is when she was barely handled, and everything about her was still relaxed. She's a very easy-going horse.
