Question Red Roan?

Is Rosie really a strawberry/red roan? I thought she was but now I'm not so sure. Btw, she is darker in the summer(summer pics are in my barn). Opinions?

Yeah varnish roan appy, she's still red though albeit a very dark red, but still red

Is that a type of roan pattern, or a color? Sorry, I'm pretty clueless when it ome to colors. I forgot to mention that she is an Appyloosa/Arabian cross.

Varnish roan, to the extent of my knowledge, is the type of roaning that Appys normally get. They have a lot more white covering up the color, hence the name "varnish", like when you put a clear coat of varnish over paint to seal it. (It looks white at first.) :)

Yup, varnish roan, and many (not all) varnish roans will get whiter year after year. My first horse stormy was a blue varnish roan - he is still kicking now in his 30's but appears white other than like 3 spots on his rump.
