Red roan

I was givin a horse, the man said she is a red roan. With her winter coat she is all red but he said when she loses her winter coat she is red and white. Is that normal? I didn't know a coat could be one color but then when it falls out it's another color. If you pet her backwards by her skin it is white but that just seems wierd to me

Most horse's coats change seasonally. Roans generally change too, some to great extremes.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Wow I never would have thought that. I can't wait to see what she looks like in the summer! I have never heard of a red roan until I got her.

We have both a blue roan and a red roan. Each looks solid colored in the winter and then their bodies shed out lighter in the spring. In the pasture right now, it looks like we have a black and a sorrel. :)

I have an overo paint that roans out in the summer, but right now her non white parts just look solid. Assuming the guy wasn't lying to you for some reason, you should definitely have a roan! It kinda cool that her color will be a surprise when she sheds out :)

Here's Fancy in the winter and in the summer. You can't see the roan hairs well in the summer, but you can tell she is much lighter and up close she is very roaned!
