What colour is Irvine?

Hes a 13.3hh welsh cob, but what colour is he? He was a 3yr old stallion & had just been broken in in these pictures.
& the video is of me riding him 4 years ago, teaching him to jump but clearly failing lol

Looks like he is a chestnut/sorrel sabino.

Something makes me want to say there is more going on. His colour seems a bit pinkish? ND you are far more the expert than I, what about roan as well as sabino?

I thought it was a little more than that..
The dealer we got him from just said he was ' red blagdon'...whatever that is lol

That sure is a possibility, but I am not so sure on that. His red areas seem to be pretty even in color (even up onto the head). He could be just a more expressed sabino.

Well the sabino gene causes roaning, so I don't think there would be additional roaning in there. I suppose it's possible though. But I have to agree with Sorrel Sabino.

I agree with the strawberry comment.

ND I think you might be right you know... His left hand side of his face is clearly the same colour as his body which would be unusual for roan.

I have read a theory that Clydies don't show Sabino but instead a DW strain. Since he has the roaning and white similar to a Clyde, I am going to say whatever they have is what he has lol.
