    Like a person already suggested...google the breed associations website. They will have all the color info there.

    Well, I looked on the Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada website and they had 7 different coat patterns listed.

    If they show 7, then those are the seven kinds they accept.

    I'm actually wondering for a course that I'm taking and one of the questions is basically what are the five main coat colors. I actually asked these questions for a reason apart from curiosity.

    Because I suck at Appys, I googled and found this:
    Blanket - refers to a horse which has a solid white area normally over, but not limited to, the hip area with a contrasting base color.
    Spots (Leopard) - refers to a horse which has white or dark spots over all or a portion of its body.
    Blanket With Spots - refers to a horse with a white blanket which has dark spots within the white. The spots are usually the same color as the horse's base color.
    Varnish Roan - A horse exhibiting the Appaloosa roan pattern develops a lighter colored area on the forehead, jowls and frontal bones of the face, over the back, loin and hips. Darker areas may appear along the frontal bones of the face as well and also on the legs, stifle, above the eye, point of the hip and behind the elbow. Without an apparent Appaloosa blanket or spots, a horse with only the above-listed characteristics will also need mottled skin and one other characteristic to qualify for regular registration.
    Varnish Roan Blanket - refers to a horse having the roan pattern consisting of a mixture of light and dark hairs, over a portion of the body. The blanket normally occurs over, but is not limited to, the hip area.
    Varnish Roan Blanket With Spots - refers to a horse with a roan blanket which has white and/or dark spots within the roan area.

    I think the 'types' are a little broader than that if I recall correctly.

    Snowflake - white spots on dark base.
    Blanket - white starting from butt type area and spreading
    Varnish - roaning

    Then you can have these flavours, with or without spots. The blanket is also known as snowcap, and can extend to cover the entire horse. Spots are not erased by extending Lp caused white, but instead are revealed by it.

    In short, Appaloosas are ridiculous.
