What color is he?

What would you call my Tejas? His mother is an Appy. His sister is a Palomino with Appy spots on her rump.

He does have a few spots on his as you can see in the pix with the bareback saddle. Is he just a buckskin or a buckskin app?

Ill have to get better pix when he comes home on the 12th :) . Im so excited!!!

It's hard to tell. My guess is that he has a blanket on his bum that is just starting to come through, and will get bigger and bigger. However, the Appy experts should be along fairly soon to tell me I am wrong :P

He is only 5, and with the experience I had with his full sister- she changed colors with the seasons. She was a buckskin in the winter and a palomino in the summer! However, she didnt have a black mane and tail like he does. :) I hope he gets more spots !

What color was his sire and his dam?
    02-05-2011, 02:53 PM
Sire was a tall chestnut, and Dam is in my Avatar. She is a buckskin with Appaloosa characteristics

He's definitely a buckskin with an emerging blanket. I'm not an expert on Appys by any means, but I do know that a lot of them change over time, just like grays get lighter over the years. So he may stay just like that, or he may end up eventually with a big blanket over his butt. He's very cute at any rate.

If his dam wasn't appy I would say buckskin roan with corn spotting, my mare's sire is a classic roan no appy in his pedigree, but some of his foals have spots that would pass for appy, but they're roan with corn spotting.

I'd say app

My girl's sire:

My girls half sister (through sire):

Sometimes roan mimics appy and sometimes appy mimics roan, was the sire or dam roan? If not def. Appy he does have the sclera and he really doesn't have any roan characteristics the more I look at him. In fact, now I'm sure he's not roan.

I would guess he is displaying either the frost pattern or a very light blanket pattern.

It isn't uncommon at all for Appy characteristics to skip a generation or two.

Either way, he is a very stunning horse and I adore that deep golden color he has.
