I'm torn between a really sun faded blue roan or a bay roan..More so towards a bay roan..

I don't think brown because he doesn't have the muzzle, I don't see just a rabicano gene at all... I'm also not fantastic with colors, I just wanted to throw a guess out there before the color experts find this!

Brown roan. Remember, as well as roans being minimal some times, they are also seasonal. So a summer roan is going to look different to the same roan in winter. Generally they are paler in winter and darker in summer IME.

Since summer coats fade, is it the winter coat that you go by for actual color?

I am going to disagree with not roan/rabicano.

I think he IS roan, but very faint. I believe he is bay, not brown. I don't know where you get rabicano, I see no skunk tail!

He also looks sun bleached :/

Also keep in mind that there can be minimal expressions of rabicano.

Yeah, but I just don't see it, at all. I see roaning all over the flanks, and you don't usually see that in just a minimally expressed rabicano.

He is definitely not bay. He is a pretty typical brown with roaning.

And I'd want to see a better picture of the taill. Looking at the last picture you can see the roaning stripes in the tail.

Okay, have to ask.. Why brown? I know the flank and other areas are lighter but the muzzle isn't?

A lot of times the muzzle is more prominently faded with a winter coat than in the summer. Summer browns usually look even closer to bays and make it even more difficult to distinguish in some horses.

The bay coat is also very uniform throughout, not faded in and out typically.
