Re: Silver + roan

What a cutie! Too bad I despise the term "red chocolate". At least they're consistent with it.

The unicorn thing... hmmm. *shrug*

Re: Silver + roan

He is a lovely looking boy alright but yeah what are they doing with the Unicorn picture :?

So when they call him a rare red chocolate roan what exactly do they mean?? Is he red based or a bay roan?

= the only reason I do not like RMH. there is a lady around her who thinks she's the sheeit about colors and that she *must* be 100% right and better than other obviously knowledgable enthusiasts. this is a horse, not a dessert, and I believe their colors should be named as such.
anyways... to answer your question..
he is obviously, to me, a silver bay roan. however why they put the red in there beats me!

Re: Silver + roan

Ok - I would have called him bay too because of the black points. Calling him red just confused me - I thought I was missing somthing :hammer

Chocolate in is sometimes used to mean silver and you have chocolate (black silver) and red chocolate (bay silver). Silver is much more widely recognized and I wish they would use that instead of chocolate.

Re: Silver + roan

Red chocolate = bay silver. Chocolate = black silver.

Not technically correct, but they know what color it is and they are very consistent within their breeds (they all use the red chocolate/chocolate terms).

Re: Silver + roan

Dang, much prefer the wanked out terminology we stumbled with when silver was first "thought of"..."black palomino" Anyone remember the Breyer rearing stallion model called that? or am I seriously showing my age here?????

Nice pony, but if you're going to do a unicorn photoshop at least get the horn on straight, that stallion has a squiffy horn. :?

Anyway howsabout Taffy? thats another great term.

Pretty horse though.

No, lets NOT get into the realms of descriptive terminology, let's drag the Equine World, kicking and screaming into the century of the revolving vole (or whenever we are now, I keep forgetting, found my glasses on my head after half an hour looking the other day......*mutter ...grumble...moan....*)
I have a Silver Black Roan, but I am afraid she looks like an odd coloured Yak at the moment and yes, she is sort of a Mini (36")

Rabbit, you're really not going to hear me argue! I do much prefer "silver/insert base colour/", but if someone does feel the need to get weirdly descriptive, I do much prefer 'black palomino' over 'chocolate' (as I consider our stallion as a foal to qualify as "chocolate"-coloured) or even taffy (since whenever I hear taffy, I think flaxen chestnut for some reason--too many New England taffy pulls in my childhood???????).

Re: Silver + roan

I wonder what some of these owners would think if we started using similiar color discriptions for THEM? :angel
