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.

Oh my gosh wow!!! Gorgeous appy :) my mare 'sort' of have a pattern like this and we call her a varnish roan with spotted blanket. And what's with this appy's hair? He has an amazing thick mane! Beautiful!!

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.

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

Lol sometimes appy's have hair I see one here and there lol. Bit that appy is at a show I'm calling extensions on the tail.

I'm not. There are plenty of appies that have full manes and tails these days...
