is a type of coat color in horses (and, occasionally, in other
animals, such as dogs and cattle) that is a mixture of white
hairs with a base coat of another color.
red roan horse
gives the horse a lightened appearance, while the mane, tail and
head remain the original color. Roan horses also tend to have
dark lower limbs, and the top of the dark area will have a
pointed or triangular appearance. It is a dominant gene, meaning
that at least one parent must be a roan in order to pass the gene
on (it does not "pop out" from two non-roan parents
with roan lineage).
true roan gene appears in some breeds more than others. Roans are
found in these breeds: Quarter Horses, Saddlebreds, Tennessee
Walking Horses, Connemara Ponies, Miniature horses, American
Paint Horses, Welsh Ponies (though rarely, if ever, in Welsh
Cobs), Shetland Ponies. There are only two roan Morgan horses
known to be alive today, a gelding and an aged mare, so the color
is probably at a dead end in that breed. The true roan gene does
not appear in Arabians and Thoroughbreds; colored individuals in
those breeds are carrying Rabicano or Sabino rather than the
"true" roan gene.
