Roans DO NOT have Blue eyes!
They are okay to breed Roan to Roan, but with the experience, I don’t recommend it.
They do NOT have health issues like some believe that Merles have.
They are listed correctly as Roan through AKC.
It does not take two blue roans to make blue roans.

The best way to get roan is to breed blue roan to a parti and not a solid.
There is also such a thing called Solid Roans, please see below.
I have bred sable roans and I must admit I do not care for it either!
I highly recommend not breeding a merle to a roan, just not a good idea and looks nasty
plus it adds a huge concern to other breeders what exactly is it…lol on top of the merle and roan
issue AKC/ASC already has in play with merle being incorrectly labeled as roans.
I would breed to the most open marked parti possible and also make sure parents behind are open marked.
If they are bred to a closed mark parti then they seem to get darker.
Depending on how the litter was bred you can end up with blue roans, blue roan and tan, red roans,
brown roans and parti’s.
Blue roans when born like a black and white but change as weeks go by.
Red roans are much harder to notice if they will roan and seem to look like red white forever.
Because of ASC not accepting Merle many Merles are registered as roan which they are not.
It is not that they are trying to hide they are Merle just didn’t know how to correctly register them.
This added to a lot of confusion in our breed today.

Roan Merle This was a Merle girl bred to a Roan boy
You would think this girl would be considered Merle.
Technically she is a Merle but technically is a Roan too.
I would not recommend breeding Roan to Merle.
