Very, very interesting. I would love to see the results of color testing.

I forgot to put in what my breed guess is. I'm guessing he is an Appaloosa. Because of the eye shape and the way he is built.

Wow he'd be a sight to see. Very strange colouring..My guess Apaloosa cross with something.
Such a colourful horse!

could be an appy breed w/ a draft horse. my uncle owns 3 appy's and I have never seen one as big as him. He is 16'2 and at least 1350lbs and very stout. I will get more pics on here tomorrow

More pics would be awesome. If you could lift his tail to the side and take a pic and one of his chest. A clear one up close at his skin and around his eye. Both sides... lol I'm being demanding. It'll probably help with more pics. And get a few showing his hooves. Are they striped? Appys can come that big, btw. : D

I guess I am the only one that doesn't see Appaloosa in him. Yeah, he's funky, but I don't know if he's funky in an Appaloosa way. I think he's way more unique than that!

First glance he looks like a brindle. But then he reminds me of the strange pinto on this page too, because he almost looks like he has tobiano type markings.

Brindle Icelandic Horses

Chimeric perhaps? He's really beautiful and unique! I can't believe he slipped by in an auction. I would have brought him home for sure, especially since he's saddle broke. And gaited too, what a cool horse!

PS. My guess on breed is Tennessee Walker or Missouri Fox Trotter.

I think his coloring is very interesting. Probably part appy if his coloring is not from something else such as chimeric. But I do know an appy at the barn I work at that kind of gaits sometimes, so it's interesting to hear that at one point some were almost gaited.. Interesting to see what the vet says about him and his crazy coloring! Either way he is a beautiful horse :)

Aw what a cool and colourful horse you have! From the two pics I've seen I guess that he is TWH X Spotted Saddle Horse. He seems large - is he physically big in person?

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.
