There's a pure QH gelding at my stable - a palomino with brown spots all over him. They're about mid-size and a little bit spread out, not like a ton of them. It reminds me a little bit of some leopard appaloosas I've seen, which confuses me. He has some brown hairs spread throughout his mane and tail and one thicker brown streak in his tail.
Is there an explanation for this? It's been confusing me ever since he moved in I'm pretty interested in equine colour genetics and such, but don't know a ton about all of that yet.
