I have to disagree with the "grey" influence comments after seeing the pics and knowing she has appy blood in her veins. Mom is an obvious Varnish Roan.. She is a Varnish Roan.. Yes she will continue to lighten but should keep her varnish points until old age. My appy is a varnish and he still has color on his face and legs. I'd say she got her black basecoat from the Friesian dad. She's very pretty..

Some of that "color" is dirt. His butt is white.
