Appy Markings, What Color Is She?

Just got my new mare home, I'm not really good with Appy coloring names so what is she? I'd call her a varnish with blanket and leopard spots, don't know how well you can see the spots since they're on top of her rump but they are there!

Although I'm not an appy breeder and have limited knowledge on all of their colour genes, I do love the breed and have come across many beautiful horses/colours. My best guess would be a bay roan with a spotted blanket.

As to color, her base color is bay. She has a double pattern - blanket with spots and varnish roan. At age 8, her coloring out is progressing pretty well...

Brown base, not bay IMO. Color pattern I am 110% in agreement with Face!

I was wondering about the brown base - mostly from the pictures she posted in her conformation thread - the muzzle sure looks like a brown in those pictures. You are most likely correct...

Yeah I knew she was a bay haha, I have another bay that's a varnish roan with a blanket and he's near his 20s and is almost completely roaned out with his blanket.
