I have a AQHA palomino satllion who has splotches of Roan on his body and white hairs if you look really close through-out his coat. He also has a coon tail. His sire which is a palomino has sired tons of roans and palominos with roan and coon tails. But I printed out a four generation pedigree and there is not one roan in his pedigree. Is it that a horse in each generation actually was a roan but not reconized as a roan and the gene has been carried through to my stallion? Or can the roan gene just pop up? My stallion sired a colt this year with roan patches and also had a coon tail. Not very familiar with the roan gene.

I have an own son of Doc O'Lena and many of his babies have roaning of the flanks and barrel. A few have coon tails. He is solid bay. There are no roans in his pedigree either. The older the babies get, the more roan they get.

One of his foals is a Palomino and he is also getting some roaning. Even some of the bays have roaning. I think that looks beautiful, but I have no idea about the roan gene.

The roan gene does not skip generations. With that said how much white do your stallions have? The sabino gene can cause roaning in the coat and can be present without being expressed.

You can see pictures of my stallion at www.brassfieldranch.com -on the home page there is a picture with out a saddle and a picture from behind on his page, SPC CUt N Oak. He has white hairs through-out his barrel and you can see the white splotches in the picture. He is also double-bred Doc O'Lena. His sire has also sired roans and you can see him on my stallions page, very little roan on his coat.

It is probably RABICANO roaning, which is different than a true "roan". Rabicano is actually a ticking pattern, causing the coon tail and roaning in various degrees about the flanks, usually. It is not a true roan.
