What color is he?

I've had many people tell me many different things and I would like to know what y'all think? Now that I think about it, I've only really seen one other horse that looked like him and it was still of a little bit. But I'm about to sell him and I would really like to know

(sorry for such big pictures )

He is a sorrel/chestnut (whichever you prefer) with sabino roaning. It's a common color in TWHs and I believe they refer to it as "lit up roan".
In other words, he's not a true red roan. He just has lots of roaning from the sabino gene. The sabino also accounts for his white markings.

Would that be the same for this horse?

This was a gelding I used to own and I always wondered about his color.
As far as I know he was out of a almost completely white paint stallion. I know nothing else from his breeding.

BarrelRacer67, you have a very pretty horse!

Yep. Chestnut sabino too. I wonder if the stallion he was by was a maximum sabino?

Thanks! I never met the parents of him, and I only have what color his sire was because we happened to meet his 'breeder' (they had a mare...).

Yeah I bet the white horse may have been similar to mine.
Pepper is a chestnut max sabino
