Roan horses sure can catch your eye! This color pattern consists of a base color like bay, black, and chestnut with white hairs overtop. The most common types are red, blue, and bay roan. Each has a slightly different look, though all are gorgeous! You’ll frequently find this color pattern in Quarter horses and Mustangs, but many breeds come in it.
