What color...Blue or Bay Roan??? Not mine.

You are correct that a brown muzzle can indicate a bay roan rather than black. The problem is that some black horses can get sunfading that can mimic the brown muzzle. From those pictures, I am the fence between between a brown roan versus a black roan, though I would I think she is more likely brown rather than black. What colors were her dam and sire?

Unusual color for sure. Surely must have Silver to make the mane so light. Appears much too brown to be a Black/Blue Roan. Perhaps Smokey Silver Black Roan?????

Welcome Pamela, whoever you are. I am in southeastern Oklahoma.

Brown Roan...I don't think she has Silver, that would cause a Flaxen/ whitish mane, not a Grey one.
I had a Connemara Bay Roan mare a few years back who had a Grey mane and tail and my Bay Roan pretending to be Black Roan mare also has a lot of Grey, not as Grey as this mare, but still lots of it!
