She's a Palomino Appy... Generally when I think Appy spots I think base color spots on a white (or varnished) coat (or butt patch)... She's pretty much what I'd expect from a "Palomino Appy"

Very cute horse btw!

Thanks everyone! Glad to know we guessed right. And she is very sweet, too. A great pony!

Yeah, the light spots are just the base color.

On the left is one of my two palomino leopards...note the light colored spots...

She is a cutie patootie no matter what color she is.

I own a palomino and he has some darker spots on his butt. When I follow my hubby when he is hauling them, Biscuit looks like an App almost. One of his spots is an odd bronze metallic color and the others are just darker gold!

Very pretty mare! Sorry to hear about the Lyme disease, but very good that they caught it and are treating it. I'm not sure, but I don't think treatment will affect her coat.

Thank you all!

Remali- It was very strange actually. We were just out on a quick bareback hop-on ride, and she was being her usual rather high-strung, crowhopping self, then suddenly, she just stopped. We got to one of our favorite galloping spots, a large grassy hill, and it was just like she had lost all her energy. She just stood there. We tried to get her to move, first asking, then demanding, then coaxing, until we noticed that she had started trembling. That was when we decided to walk her back and see what my mom said. It took forever though, Maddie leading and me following on Broddi, sometimes having to whack her to keep her moving. All the while contemplating all sorts of horrible things that she could have, and if it was contagious, she is kept in the same pasture as a pregnant mare, and should we isolate her, ect. It didn't help that we had just talked in 4-H about several horrible equine diseases you can vaccinate against, and the symptoms, some of which were trembling, weakness, ect.

At first, we thought it was colic, then the vet thought grass tetni, then, after a blood test, diagnosed Lyme. She's back to riding tomorrow. We'll see how she does!

Very pretty horse. I keep seeing the word "Varnish" used to describe a color on a horse. Exactly what does that mean?

Varnish is not a color it's a type of roaning.
