    Looks black to me.

    Are you questioning whether she's roan or not? Do you see any white hairs sprinkled throughout her coat?

    I can't see any from these pics....so.....I'd say "black"

    She looks black, but if both of her parents are roans she may roan out later on...

    My friend has a registered appaloosa gelding, Bob ^^, who was a solid chestnut up until he turned thirteen, and then he started blanketing out like crazy. Sometimes it just takes time :]

    Appaloosa can do crazy things like that.... but as for the Roan gene (which is not linked to Lp), all the roans I've known have been roans since they were young *shrugs*

    I agree with the others...looks black to me. My parents have a blue roan mare, and in the winter (even as a weanling) she does get darker...but you can still see the roan hairs. To me, this filly looks solid black from the pictures you posted.

    blue roan is a black with roan, so if both of her parents were truly blue roans then they only had one roan gene, and neither passed it to her :)

    Black if both were blue roan they were just black w/ roan she just missed the roan. She's looks old enough where she won't roan out, unless she's LP
