I want to say I read from someone smarter than myself that there isn't known genetics to distinguish the Appy patterns, just a different physical blanket pattern. But I know nothing and don't pretend to! Lol.

Not exactly true. Most people that are into genetics agree that there are two different genes that cause appy patterns - LP and PATN. Some theorise that there are two different PATNs, PATN1 and PATN2, but I don't know enough about appies to go that far lol. Basically, LP causes spots, PATN causes white. So this horse has one copy of LP - causing the spots, but only one, as two copies make no spots again (confusing, I know lol). He also has one copy of PATN I think - a small white blanket, but with two copies you would expect more white, as in a leopard.

Please remember appies are not my forte lol. ND or Face could give more info than me, should they happen upon this.

OP - I would call him a black spotted blanket with varnish roan. A mouthful, but seems fairly accurate looking at him.

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.

The overwhelming odds are he will color out to be a phenotypic leopard...
