My vote is also for Purple Roan (brown roan).

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yep, I'd say Brown Roan for sure (I have one too, who looked almost EXACTLY the same at that age, except she also has the grey gene, so she had her black points for her foal coat & all he pale parts grey'ed out 1st).
Foal coat


Foal shed

I'd be interested to know where you got her tested by too, as there is only one lab on the planet (as far as I know), that is able to test for Brown (At) atm. All other labs simply test for Agouti & if the horse has it, its 'considered' Bay (they don't have the test that differentiates Bay from Brown yet), as it isnt black or chestnut :)

I know I'm leaning towards a homozygous black based stallion, who will compliment the above filly (who is now 8yrs & also At/a), as the bonus is I'll only get Black or Brown foals from that cross- since Brown is recessive to Bay, but dominate to Black :) Which is why I tested my girl- cuts back on the guess work for me & I'm curious like that lol
