Appy Color Questions *Pics*

A good friend of mine has an Appy gelding, he's papered she just never got the papers. Built like a tank, 11 years old... Only thing that has us stumped is his color... So a question for all you appy experts, what color and blanket type would you call Cutter?

i'd guess that he was born with a blanket and is a varnish of some type. the base color i would say is chestnut/sorrel.

edit: with the dark legs perhaps he was a bay. *shrug* appys are a new color every day it seems. :P

He has all the signs of a roan I think, his legs are dark but they arent black, they are more of a brownish grey but dark... He has the little red points of a red roan. Were just not sure what exactly he is! He has us stumped! Awsome thing with his spots is he has a perfect heart on his left hip!

from what i understand (there are more experienced appy color people on this board), a roan is BORN a roan whereas a varnish "roans" out with age. if that makes sense.

My best guess would be that he is a buckskin varnish roan with a spotted blanket.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The red roan doesnt fit because his points are darker, and in the pics his spots look red, and they really arent, they are kind of an off set tan color... If that makes sense! :-/

She never got that far with the papers, the previous owner still has them, hes her every day trail horse and with her for life so she really wasnt intereted in papers. Hes a nice horse all around! Pictures dont do him justice, and they dont tell his color to well, they were all taken with my android so they arent that great either!

My guess is Bay Varnish with spotted blanket.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
