Roan? Rabicano? Purebred Arabian

So, I have two "roans". I haven't tested yet. They say it's not in the Arabians, but roan is an acceptable colour on the registration application.

I say rabicano, but they both have every indicator or roan (dark legs, face, ears, etc) and my rabicanos are "roaned" throughout - butt, head, face, legs, etc.

Tis interesting.

Pink Floyd, Stallion:










And Tessa, Mare. She isn't as extreme, but definitely "roaned".







Winter:



To Spring:

Both are Rabicano. The "roaning" is heavily in the flanks. And the coon tail on Pink Floyd is a dead giveaway. The mare could also be carrying a sabino gene that causes all the "roaning".

I was fairly certain that roan wasn't in Arabs. Even if it's on the registration application, sometimes registries aren't exactly up to date on the genetics "behind the scenes" and only look at what's on the surface.

Kind of like the APHA and them only registering solid, overo, torero and tobiano. When there is frame...splash...sabino...etc.

See my QH's roaning looks more like that, but when I posted to see if he was roan or rabicano I was told roan! My farrier swears hes rabicano, others say roan...he never gets really roany...I dunno.

Tessa probably does. Her sister I own is more sabino then rabicano, but still has both traits. We still haven't identified the sabino gene in Arabian yet, either, and it's very obviously there.
And what do you mean there is no Tovero?!

Thanks! He is an incredible guy. Everyone that meets him, the first comment is usually "He's HUGE!!" LOL
Are the pictures showing up okay? Sometimes they are, sometimes they aren't for me. I'm getting annoyed.

I don't think I'm seeing all of the pics, because there are small boxes ... but I'm on a tablet with not a lot of memory so it could be me.
