So is this horse a roan or a varnish roan? I thought it was simple, but now I'm confused! Lol He's half appaloosa, half QH, striped hooves, chestnut mane and tail, but his forelock has a fair amount of white.... (And I think he looks adorable in pink! :P)
That is a varnish roan. He also appear to have a snowcap blanket. As a general rule, classic roan does not touch the lower legs or face, where as varnish roan does whatever it pleases, continually lightening the horse similarly to gray, but over a longer period of time.
