    He's as Badass Brown right?

    So now that Sparta is officially 2 years old and showing his true colors, he is a Badass Brown isn't he? I recently seen someone post about a horse that looks similar to him that was a Brownskin, but i'm not really sure if there is a way sparta could be that which leads him to just being Seal brown. Right?

    Photos from the last 2 days. The ones of him running was because we let the little filly out, and he was being a real witch, which isn't like him at all!

    These are from late last summer


    And this year. A couple of weeks ago





    And from yesterday

    His mom was a Chesnut Varnish Roan blanket Appy, and I never got to see the sire. Just know that he was a "Black" QH meaning he could be a large various amounts of things sadly.

    If he were mine, I would be thinking about a cream test lol. He just has that golden tint to his coat, right?

    He certainly does. I have photos of his Dam if you want those. I WILL say. Not sure if it makes to much of a difference, but sparta has 3 full siblings. 2 palomino sisters, and Black Varnish roan appy brother. So he may just be a brownskin after all.

    Well that makes it slightly easier. If the two palominos are his full sisters, they have to have a cream gene from a parent, so he could have it too. I am actually leaning toward smoky black though. Do you have baby pictures?

    Actually, I went back through your old posts like a crazy stalker. I am far more confident in saying he looks like a smoky black to me. I would be testing him for extension and for cream if I owned him

    What genetically would be a smokey black? Black based + Cream?

    Anna. Thank you! Went in half with another lady, and we bought sparta's mom, I was to take the baby when it was born. And I am thankful that we did that because I truely believe this boy is my heart horse! And I am very thankful to have owned him from the day he was born and continue to own and love him until the day he passes.
