    It is also very common for appies to have a moderate amount of shade variation in their spots. Your horse sounds like a chestnut to me from the description and not a brown. A chestnut, would, of course have chestnut on the face (as you describe) and you said the legs are chestnut too. A brown horse would have black leg spots and the entire mane and tail would be black, not just a few mixed in hairs.

    See, that's what I thought-- he does almost have black down by his feet-- around the coronets..

    I'll have some pics in the summer, when you can see his color. ;)

    The 'palomino' spots are up by his face, the black are by his withers, and the dark brown/ liver spots are by his butt, and almost look brindle-- he's somethin like a rainbow, lol.
