Bay Roan? Or Brown Roan...
Is there such a thing as brown roan?
I was looking at Bunny today and since she is losing a lot of her white hairs as her winter coat is growing in, and around where her black points should be as a bay, are more of the reddish brown color you see in brown horses.
Hopefully the pictures help, you can see the more brown color coming in on her shoulder.
Yes there is such a thing as a brown roan and IMPO you have a brown roan :-)
Lovely coloring!! Roans are really pretty, like yours. I noticed that the TB broodmare farm on my way home from work, has had a chestnut roan foal this year. Didn't even know that TB's could be roan--looker, none the less. =D
I can't wait to see what she looks like once she gets her full winter coat in. :D Will update with photos once that happens.
And thank you everyone. (:
There is one line of TBs that are roan, but all of them are within Australia.
I think she's bay roan...
the mane's brown in the first picture but it looks black in the last one and she's got black stockings on her legs, consistent with the bay colouring.
She looks a similar colour to a pony I ride who is bay roan too.
Horseybex: Her mane is Black, white, red and brown. :b I think thats due to the roaning though. Her tail is mostly all black. She does have black legs, but I saw another thread on here somewhere when the horse had black legs but the rest was more brown, with the tan. I'll try and find it, but everyone said he was brown. Thats what made me think it was more possible for her.
