Chestnut/Tobiano/Roan horse

One of the minis I know is a chestnut tobiano roan. Extension is (at least somewhat) linked to KIT, right? So, what are your thoughts on this mini mare?

Also, do you think she has mealy? And how does mealy/Pangere work genetically?

Thanks!

This means that roan is liked

This means that roan is liked to one e and tobiano to the other.  I don't see pangare.  I would expect her muzzle and belly to be lighter.

You are sure she is true Roan

You are sure she is true Roan? I would have expected the chest shield to have been roaned as well as the rump, also it would appear she just has a roan "blanket" which is not typical.....

I see this pattern in my own

I see this pattern in my own roans about the time they start to shed.

No, not quite like this I don

No, not quite like this I don't. It's the full colour right down the front that threw me.....

Okay. Do all the KIT genes work in this way?

rabbits - True. If she isn't

rabbits - True. If she isn't a true (Rn) Roan, what type of roan do you think she is? I presumed she was the true roan due to the solid head/legs, but didn't account the solid chest.

Also, I have another roan

Also, I have another roan question for you guys.

Two horses I know (both chestnut-based) were mostly solid; the mare had one stripe and a fetlock, the stud had a stripe w/ large snip, and little (if any) leg-white.

The two horses were bred quite a few times, with most of the foals being non-roan. There was one roan, but I don't think she was a true roan. What do you guys think as far as the stud's/dam's white patterns? Does the stud carry splash or sabino?

 First pic is the roaned horse, second is the roaned horse's full sister, third is the dam (and me riding her; yikes I was little then), and last is the stud.

The head and legs on Roans

The head and legs on Roans can and do stay "solid" but IME at least, they go roany form the head back, all over the body. The bit of that horse that is not white looks solid on the front, and the sort of blanket would indicate Sabino roan to me.....

I have seen photos of a horse

I have seen photos of a horse that tested positive for roan and has several classic roan foals out of non roan mares who by just looking at him would never guess he was classic roan.
