I love the pictures! You all have beautiful horses! I can't wait to see what mine will look like. It's on her papers she is a red roan. I wish I can post pics on here but I have to do everything over my phone so it's harder to post. :(

Harley is a red roan too. He REALLY changes from winter to summer. And I just noticed yesterday that his coal black mane has all of a sudden started getting white hairs in it. So it is going to be really interesting to see what he looks like this spring. Roans are the best cause each spring it is a big suprise as to what color they will be This year. LOL Here is a pic of him this past summer and one taken about three days ago.

Harley your horse is a bay roan. Red roan usually refers to a chestnut based roan, not a bay based roan

Here are a couple of other pictures of him from July. He really does change colors throughout the year. Do you still think he is a bay roan??

Yes he is a bay roan.

I have a Silver Bay Roan that changes every year..he's never been the same twice :) this is him throughout the year, yes he's a mini so he's been clipped...i only clip him once a year because he ends up that ugly grey color

Yep he's a bay roan. Mane and tail are black...if he was a red roan he'd have a red mane/tail as you would find on a chestnut (since that's the base of a red roan).

Misty has a red mane/tail, but she has a lot of white hair mixed in it
