I think there may even be some strawberry roan in there somewhere, he's a cute little bitza...is he branded?

Rawlo the 'roan' that you can see is the 'varnish' roan. Rather than classic roan that causes strawberry roan, it is part of the appy colour family. A good way to distinguish is that classic roan usually leaves the head and legs fairly solid, and while it may change from season to season, it is usually a consistent colour from year to year. Varnish roan on the other hand is very happy to roan the extremities, and as the horse gets older, it will generally roan further.
