There are basically four color combos in appys.. obviously the PATN gene can cuase variations of these colors.. but there is

Leopard.. LP/lp (shows spots, striped hooves, mottled skin)
Fewspot/snowcap... LP/LP ( can NEVER have a solid noncharacteristic horse... does NOT have hoof stripes and may or may not have mottled skin..)
Solid Non Characteristic... lp/lp (solid hooves, no mottling)


There are obviously variations of colors within these genetics.. roaning, etc.

I'll bet this guy has never had a solid NC horse. Because im pretty dang confident he is LP/LP.

Yeah, he is my Barn owner's horse, but she doesn't spend much time on internet forums so I am doing research and stuff for her. She came from H/J backround with Thoroughbreds and Warmbloods and such, so Appys are new to her as well.

I will pass on the info to her about the tests. I'm sure she's going to want to do them. I can't wait to see what comes of it!

He does have mottled skin, by the way. It is quite clumpy in some areas and not at all in others. It is quite sparse around his eyes and mouth but it is there.

That is not mottling. That is just skin pigment.. mottling looks like this...

^^Oh, okie doke. I should say then, he has mottled skin, but not hair. It can be seen very well when he is hosed down.

Yeah, he could be a snowcap, but it's hard to tell. I haven't seen a snowcap with a blanket that small. I'm used to snowcaps having a larger blanket like my former gelding Rambo...

Usually they do. Unless they have the roaning gene....

3 year old with her first foal:

Today.. she looks like a fewspot. But since I have a baby photo I know she is a snocap:
