Red Roan?

Is Rosie really a strawberry/red roan? I thought she was but now I'm not so sure. Btw, she is darker in the summer(summer pics are in my barn). Opinions?

Looks like a varnish roan/appy to me.

That was my thought too.

yeah varnish roan appy, she's still red though albeit a very dark red, but still red

Is that a type of roan pattern, or a color? Sorry, I'm pretty clueless when it ome to colors. I forgot to mention that she is an Appyloosa/Arabian cross.

Varnish roan, to the extent of my knowledge, is the type of roaning that Appys normally get. They have a lot more white covering up the color, hence the name "varnish", like when you put a clear coat of varnish over paint to seal it. (It looks white at first.) :)

Yup, varnish roan, and many (not all) varnish roans will get whiter year after year. My first horse stormy was a blue varnish roan - he is still kicking now in his 30's but appears white other than like 3 spots on his rump.
