    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..

    Cheno - age 28 or 29 here


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

    Oh she's gorgeous! She looks like she's doing exactly what my app mare did, she was born pure brown and changed into all the colors she is now (see avatar).

    It's called Varnish roan, it's different from regular roan, the giveaway is the lack (or less) of white on the "bony" areas, her hips, sides etc. Varnish roan also affects the face and head, whereas regular roan doesn't. She may also have some snowflaking, but that could just be the varnish. I love Apps and have done a lot of research on the color genetics. There's no telling what she could end up as, she could stay looking like she does now or she could end up almost completely white, she could even get spots!

    WildFeathers I love your horses color!!!! I think that's gorgeous. I'm excited to see how Moon changes when she gets older. She is 1/2 Friesian but she took more of the Appy side!!!
