Weird colour?

I was looking at horses for sale when I came across this guy. The ad says he's liver chestnut, but from the lighting and his body angle he looks blue roan to me. But if he is he's got a VERY odd mane and tail... What do you guys think he is?

Definitely not a blue roan, if he is roaned at all he'd be a chocolate roan maybe. Liver chestnut (just chestnut, rather) may be his base color...

Definitely grey. As for what colour under the grey, impossible to really be sure.

Rare liver chestnut with flaxen grey mane and tail? I wonder what we will hear of next.

How do you tell the difference between roan and grey? Do certain base colors not roan? Does grey affect more of the body?

Roan and grey can and do affect all base colors.


What is causing everyone to say grey with this pony is the lightening of the tail and the white that is evenly distributed on the body and face.

Roan will not effect the tail and does not put white hairs on the face.

I think also the picture was taken somewhat poorly...the lighting is sooooo bright and hitting him from behind and the right.

He does look like he could be graying out too. His color reminds me a lot of the Andalusian colt who lives with Reno. The baby is graying out and looks a lot like that (except his base color was bay I think).
