Roan in Miniature Horses

Roan allele Rn

I was going to write something up about roans, but Ride A Roan's website and the various color testing sites explain it so much better!

These are photos of some of the roans we've had over the years. Each row is of the same horse as a foal and as they've aged and/or various times of year.



Color testing can be performed through Animal Genetics, UC Davis, Veterinary Genetic Services and a few others. The price varies depending on the test. A full panel can run $100, individuals $25-40-60 depending on which color/coat pattern being tested. Tests use pulled mane or tail hair and take usually a few days to a week.
