*sigh* No he won't look like a leopard. He will never look like a leopard. He is not a leopard.

Not a full leopard. What I mean when I said that was that when over the years hell turn white...(right?) and the only thing that wll be left will be his spots and the roan will be gone.

He may retain some color on his boney parts, but that all depends on the horse. Like with grey, LP does it's own thing on each horse.

I wouldn't refer to him as a leopard as that is not what he is, nor will he ever be a leopard regardless of what LP/varnish does to the res of this color.

Possibly. There is no way to predict precisely what will happen to his coat.. He will continue to lighten until he dies. If he turns white, he turns white. If he doesn't, he doesn't. The spots will most likely stay, but they're only on his butt. He will never be called a leopard of any sort though.

I understand that. I got him and everyone said he was a red roan leopard and I thought well that can't be right.

Oh it can be right. There is a difference between appy/varnish roan and true roan though. Most people don't know the difference.
