Question Strange color! Appy or Paint or What?

I saw this horse on a for sale site (not wanting to buy) and he caught my attention because of his color. But what would you call his coat color?

Both. Frame is causing the white pinto patterning. Then appy causing the varnish roan over the top.

I personally am a stickler, and I would call him a "bay varnish roan and frame pintaloosa". That's probably the most accurate.

Look at his muzzle. Is he still bay? I see some paler colour!

Edit; I do agree on the rest though. Just thought it was ironic that Chiilaa of all people didn't spot that. Or maybe I'm just seeing things.

Haha...pintaloosas are usually either real pretty or real ugly (color wise)...not too hard to tell which one this one is...

I also suspect there is more in the woopile than just Appy and Paint...

I'm seeing a hint of giraffe in that neck and head set.

Being an avid Appaloosa fan, I personally hate seeing "pintaloosas"

Saying that I wouldn't pass up a good horse whatever it's breeding or colour. I do agree though with the "ugly stick" comment in this case, though! Lol

Varnishing probably has something to do with the lighter muzzle. LP does some fun things with colour... like the blond tail.

I'm not seeing the lighter muzzle as being varnish just because it's too red/tan, I would have thought that if varnish caused it there would be more of a greyish/roany look to it. A lighter muzzle is the ONLY sign my gelding shows of being brown - he is brown, not bay, but doesn't show many signs - and even that typically only in the winter.

It is possible he's brown. It still looks like slight mottling on his muzzle and over the bridge of his nose but then, it could be poor quality of the photo.
