Totally normal for a true roan to look "solid" when in full winter coat. You guy is a bay roan and not a red roan.

From what I've seen, roans tend to have a huge range of colors they go through during the year. There's another member on here, Whisper22, who has a roan mare who looks completely different from summer to winter. Cute gelding. Love his face in the second pic.

I don't know exactly what to call Sky. Is there such thing as a roan paint? I was told she was a sabino but I'm not sure exactly what that means. I've already posted these, a couple times actually lol, but here they are again.

Yes there are such things as roan paints. There are a couple of different roans, sabino, true roan, and varnish.

Yes, there are such things as roan paints. If you google, you'll come up with tons of images. Here's an explanation of sabino: sabino horses

My mare change her color all the time. Perhaps not as extreme as your gelding.

Some examples.

Brown greyish


And sometimes she decides to have weird looking dots.

And even almost dark brown.
