Not roan... yes you spotted the sabino but it's not the "roaning" that tells me sabino, it's the blaze and the stockings. Jaggedy stockings are very much a sabino trait [I have two horses with jaggedy stockings, one has a belly splash as well and has to be sabino only, the other shows a few traits that might indicate possible frame], as is symmetrical centralized face white.
The "roaning" is actually rabicano. If you look at the one photo that's a decent shot of his tail, you can see he has quite a lot of white hairs in his tail too? That's a "coon" or "skunk" tail, a rabicano trait, as is the "roaning" which is restricted to his flanks and barrel. If he has a few random white hairs elsewhere that might be something to do with the sabino, or it might just be "red horse flecking" - which many many chestnuts have.
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
