She's 100% not blue roan. She would need a black mane and tail and black legs. None of which this mare has. Also she has no black points at all like a blue roan would have such as on the ears and muzzle. That horse is DEFINITALLY red based. Also flaxen doesnt show up on black based horses. If you cover up her body and just look at her face she looks like a sorrel/chestnut. Hence she is a sorrel/chestnut roan. Maybe liver chestnut. There is no way, if you covered up her body and just looked at her face, that she would look like a black horse. I know everyone wants blue roans and they seem to be worth more but hoping she is and calling her a blue roan doesnt make her more of one. In the wise words of shakespeare "A rose by any other name is just as sweet" You have a lovely red roan! My riding mare is a red roan! Enjoy her!
