Color question: chestnut TB stallion, sabino?
I love to browse the stallion ads on the Bloodhorse stallion register. I stumbled across this guy earlier today: Sweet Return (GB) and I'm very intrigued by his color. He's chestnut with jagged high whites-- obviously sabino -- and with marked roaning all over his topline.
Is the roaning from the sabino? Or something else? And where did this color come from in the pedigree...? His sire is a pretty normal chestnut; he's got some odd low hind pastern white, but otherwise ordinary coat (no roan). Paternal grandsire Diesis is a normal chestnut with some white. Maternal grandsire Claude Monet is the same-- a chestnut with white.
So... where'd the roan come from?
