Reverse Palomino Appaloosa?! Please Help!

Alright, so, this December my friend finally got a horse, Natasha. She's a really nice mare, 16 years old, well trained, ect.

But we have really do not know what color to call her. We were told that she is a palomino appaloosa, but by that, most people think of a palomino horse with white spots. She is the exact opposite; light colored horse with palomino spots, then some odd smudging and roaning on her face, legs, and general coat.

All we know is that she is at least part Appaloosa and part Quarter Horse. Apparently, her mother (and Appy) was bred by a QH stallion in the auction pen! Her previous owners bought her from her mother's buyers when she was a yearling, and according to them, she had a bright chestnut blanket then.

We were thinking palomino varnish roan appaloosa, since she looks a lot like some horses that are claiming to be varnish roans. But, I am no expert on colors, so I'm turning her over to the color experts here. What do you think she is?

The first pic is the day we got her, mid-December. She had been blanketed most of the fall, but when we bought her, she was unblanketed the last few weeks before we picked her up, since we don't blanket.

The next one was taken this week, after she's shedded out a bit and had a nice bath.

I'm not sure? Haha it is the easiest way for me but makes it so you can't choose where your images go. They always end up at the very bottom of the post... I never was 100% on how to insert the images your way so we both learned new things! :)

Early December (she was sort of a Christmas Present!)

Taken mid-April. The ones in the evening were after her bath, the one out on the dirt, with the hoses in the background, was before.

And others from various times during the last 3 months.

Oh, and on Thursday, we found out she actually has Lyme disease, so she's on treatment right now. No clue if that would dull or change her coat in any way...

And sorry if those don't work.

Agreed she is a varnish palomino. The appy spots don't have to be dark.

She is a very cute horse!!
