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.

I think he is a varnish. I do love the pink, but come on! He's a boy! I just couldn't justify it myself.

^ Srsly?

He's definitely a varnish - you can see how the roaning is all through his head and on his legs as well. True roans will always have solid legs and solid heads.

Chestnut Roan (aka. Strawberry or Red Roan)


Chestnut Varnish Roan:

I was always under the impression that strawberries and reds were the same, only strawberries had flaxen manes
