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.
