I say appy because if you take a close look there is mottling on the muzzle and the white scalara in the eyes make me think appy.

I have two roans in the pasture...I vote roan!

I vote appy. He looks like one to me, I agree with mountainhorse.

I say Appaloosa roan, based on:
1.The number, shape and distribution of the spots over his shoulders and hips (non-app roans can have dark spots and specks, but they are not usually so numerous and regular/round shaped, nor so concentrated over the hips and top half of the horse)
2. His head is roaned (particularly on the forehead,cheeks, and down the nose on either side of the face marking-- these areas would be solid a non-app roan) with a slight hint of darker varnish mark visible on his nasal bone next to his blaze.
3. Hooves do indeed look faintly striped (striping on some but not all cherstnut LP horses' hooves can be faint to non-existent as compared to the higher contrast striping on black based LP horses' hooves)
4. His resemblance to other, "known" app-roans I have seen/owned, inclluding the palomino/app/roan mare out in my paddock right now.
5. His poofy, short/fine little forelock.

Oh, and gladja missed me

OH-- forgot to add-- I am judging this horse's "appaloosa-ness" based on the presence of LP/app color only-- because being (small "a") appaloosa (as in, app-colored) and being (capital "A") Appaloosa (as in, ApHC-registered) are obviously not always the same.

ApHC will take most colored geldings with unknown/unacceptable pedigrees under their hardship clause, but they make up only a small percent of registered Appaloosas. The majority of registered Appaloosas have 2 registered parents with known documented pedigrees from specific/limited allowable breeding.

Just had to clarify that.

That said, he 's a cute horse as well as a nice color!

Ehn... Roan. :/

I vote appy. It has the white bits around the eyes, and I see a little striping and a little molting.

I vote that he's a roan appy. He looks almost exactly like one of the appy geldings that I worked with over the summer.

Very well said EastoWest. I say Appy becuase his feet are dirty, but you can still tell they are striped.

Appy. True roans don't have roaning on the front part of their face, as eastowest mentioned, and this horse definitely does.
