Hmmmm. That is an interesting color. I'm almost tempted to say he's a bay roan, but I'm not educated enough to be sure.

NO,Does no look like a roan horse.Looks more to be a dark bay or brown horse with Rabicano gene. Has white hair flecking & coon tail marking of such.
Pretty horse but not a Roan...IMO

Interesting in the 2nd pic his head looks like a drk blue roan but his body doesn't follow the same color pattern...also can't help but notice that the poor guy is getting his lip yanked back to his ears by his handlers hand on the bit..geez..maybe a whoa would stop him long enough for the camera

Looks like he may be a very faint roan. Not a blue roan though. I'd lean towards bay roan. If I -really- look at the picture...I actually think he's brown based looking at his flanks. I vote faint brown roan lol

Yes, he is a roan. Not all roan carriers are heavily roaned, some of them only have a few sparse white hairs on them.

As for whether he's a black or a brown roan (those are the only 2 options IMHO), I would have to leave it up to genetic testing to say for certain. He could be a brown roan....or he could just be a blue roan that happens to fade in the sun like lots of other black horses.
