Appy colours!! I'm kinda lost

Hey guys!

Identifying colours for me has always been a little bit of a week spot for me especially with appys!

I was wondering if you guys would be willing to help me out.

Long story short I rescued an appy colt, and 4 broodmares from a herd of wild horses. My broodmares foaled out.

I know appys change colours, love the breed, but I was wondering what you would call these guys?!?!

Please keep in mind some of these photos are taken through their transition with me, as they where never properly cared for and ran wild with 120 something other horses.

information

Buckaroo : now a 2 year old ( yes I know he is small but his mother was never cared for until I got her so he will develop slower as my colt from the herd tucker is now 15 hands and I got him as a almost a 2 year old at 13 hands) his dam is meshia.

Meshia, Spook and tucker's dams/sires are unknow. Controlled breeding was not happening with this herd.

Tucker is bay or brown with a blanket, and varnish.

Buckaroo is bay or chestnut and varnish (sometimes appy patterning messes with the appearance of colours, looks more red-based to me though).
Meshia looks like a black varnish.

And Spook looks black underneath the varnish, but I don't know what to call the little dark spots.

The pictures are poor quality to judge, but Tucker may also be a snowcap...

Thank you guys!!
I never thought there was such thing as black varnish.
If it helps, spook foaled a tri lepord colt.
I was shocked with the chance of buckaroo this spring! His name was mainley what was his color and because he buck around if you scratched when first born...both things ended fast!

Sorry about picture quality if more are interested in better pics I can get some more or search through my files of pictures.... that maybe a long process ;)

Danaro is the tri lepord appy I have, well I been told he is tri because he has spots that are black, and than solid spots of brown... I am going to try my best to pull up a photo that shows the spots! If you look the spots are black on the legs and rest are brown.

Thank you guys!
