I've had a vet say he is a paint/appaloosa mix, another say he is just paint...I know a genetic sample will give me the real answer, just wondering what everyone thinks. I think he is mainly paint with some appaloosa in there. He definitely has red roan in there too. I love how different his coat is. He doesn't have molted skin or vertically striped hooves like an appy but has appy spots. What are your thoughts?

That's a definite pintaloosa pattern.

^^Agreed. He doesn't have the striped hooves because I bet he has white markings on all 4 legs. Not all appys have mottled skin either, but the combination of the odd roaning on his colored spots (looks like varnish roan to me) and the random spots of color on the rest of his body absolutely scream pintaloosa to me.

He looks to be a Pintaloosa to me...has the typical Appy-in-the-rear, Paint-in-the-front markings.

There is no test available yet to determine breed that I am aware of, although an LP test should soon be available commercially...

Your horse is different. That's a very typical snowcap pattern, indicating a homozygous Appaloosa.

The OP's horse, however, shows all signs of being a tobiano or even tovero pintaloosa.

Thanks everyone for their input!

Considering that everyone else has already confirmed that your horse appears to be pinto/appy, I have nothing informative to add. I just wanted to commend you on your halter choice - Smoke has the same one.

I love his halter/lead. Not only the color/quality but the nice pad across the noseband. :)
