Roan is an option on a CAHR application. Then it's just...genetics.

Not always. DNA will prove the difference. It isn't "just another name for it".
I always thought that chestnut and sorrel were the same COLOR, just differently used for registration. I have seen many roans of other breeds that look just like this horse.
Send me some links to read. I am interested in how DNA proves that a common color name is innaccurate.

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did! http://www.horseforum.com/general-of...queens-617793/

Seriously? Let's not turn this thread about this beautiful stallion into a petty war on color. If she chooses to test him, we'll know. In the meantime, let's admire this pretty boy Floyd!

I say chesnut, my sister says sorrel. Genetically they are the same. I find it is a breed, english/western thing.
I think what she is saying that while he is roan coloured, he won't carry the roan gene you find in Quarter Horses. Like none of my sabinos carry the sabino 1 gene found in other breeds. They haven't identified the sabino gene in Arabians yet. Could it be the same as the roan? I don't know...

I checked out UC Davis and Animal Genetics. There is a test for roan but I haven't found one for rabicano yet. Might have to send them an email or call and see.
