White hairs intermixed with an otherwise solid coat is a Roan. I can see that Arab registration has another name for it.

I had the unbelievable privilege of getting to know a son of Serafix. His name was Serasun, and he was lost for a time due to his owner's death and the will being contested. I met and got to know him during those lost years. I was very young and new to horses and had no idea what or who he was...or the import. All I knew was that there was one stallion in the barn I (14 and GREEN) was allowed to take from his stall and handle. That was the little chestnut stallion Serasun. I used to bring him out to groom and hand graze, and he was always incredibly polite and kind. I could hang in his stall and all he'd do is rest his chin on my head. I didn't even know what "stallion" meant, except I knew he could get a mare pregnant. I didn't know that he was an anomaly.

The will was settled, and Serasun was moved on down the line. A few years later, I found a full page ad in a magazine: "Serasun, son of Serafix! Found at last! Standing at stud." I called, and yes, it was the same horse. So he had a soft landing at the end. :) I've NEVER forgotten his nature and willingness. He was unrideable due to injury, but so kind and free of complaint. Sorry to threadjack, but I rarely miss an opportunity to talk about that stallion. I'd love to own a Serasun descendent some day, but those lines are getting more and more distant, and less and less common. Never mind that Serasun and Serafix are both getting so far back in the pedigree that temperaments are going to be less influenced by their blood.

I have 2 yet with Serafix still showing on the paper. Recently sold several others.

Not always. DNA will prove the difference. It isn't "just another name for it".

Seems to be a great cross. I have no Serafix; he was a great stallion. I am loving the Raffon in there. He was always one of my favourites.
This is the pedigree on my other stallion:

Hoping to do a photoshoot today or tomorrow, I can get some. Nice big round feet. He is just BIG.

That is exactly what my vet said yesterday. He won't carry the "classic" roan gene. I'm just going to pull hair. LOL
