Thanks so much for your kind words about my photos.
Not only did I go "Wowza" when I saw Lucky Chappy at Churchill, but I
took some closeups of his tail as it's so wildly skunk-taily. He has a
generally bay head (with a few white hairs), but he absolutely,
completely looks like a roan. Just behind his head - from his neck
back - he has tons of white hairs throughout. His belly and midsection
barely show any brown...he looks more like a uniform, medium-grey.
He shows a bit more brown/bay down into his legs near his black
points...but even those "points" (legs and tail) have lots of white
(especially his tail).
If he didn't have that obvious skunk tail, which I've read indicates
rabicano, I'd be very sure he is a roan. And for people who read the
dictionary definition of "roan," rather than just study genetic codes,
he sure fits.
Thanks again, and take good care,
