Varnish roan!

They can start out will little to no varnish on their body but as they age they gradually gain more and more white.
My appy just had a little star on his head that grew larger evey year his blanket also got larger and and his body got more roany every year.

This is my grandmothers 32 year old varnished appy

Click to view this. Need to get pictures from this year added too it, but it's a good representation of how varnish can progress, and it can and will progress on every horse differently.
