    Thank you! I am very biased, as he's the first foal I've ever witnessed being born. He is sooo sweet and will roll over for a belly rub if I scratch it when he's lying down. And he let's me snuggle all over when he's napping :)

We both know there are fence jumpers and dishonest breeders, and know that before DNA filing a lot of horses were misregistered. I forget how far back they went with Reminic, but if I remember it was only 1 or maybe 2 generations - DNA was probably unavailable back any farther.

    I am just not a believer in spontaneous LP/PATN mutations. Obviously it has happened at least once sometime in the last 55 million years, but the odds are a bazillion to one...with those kind of odds if it looks like an Appy, it is probably an Appy...
    Yep I remember those discussions. That was when he was for sale and was bought by the Canadians.

    And I agree. APHA, ApHC and AQHA have so much mingled blood it wouldn't surprise me in the least that a little ways back in Reminic In Spots pedigree is something hinky going on (weren't there some breeders running bands of mixed horses and then just registering with whatever registry based on looks? I know people would register better looking horses as having a sire/dam they didn't actually have...), and you are correct, they did not DNA test that far back.

    On the Varnish thing... That's why I try not to refer to it as varnish roan and try to just call it varnish. I figured he was going to be a varnish as well. I'm more surprised at the ones that keep their blankets than by the ones that do.

    I will be sure to update this thread as their breeding and registration if possible is figured out. I want it to happen now, I'm so impatient and curious lol

    Lins very cute foal! Your so lucky!!!

    He is four yrs and 16.3hh
    Not enough to go by in that picture, but I would probably be clueless anyway. Seeing as it is an Appy thread, I assume he is an Appy or part Appy. As he is too young to have greyed out that far I would guess he is a fewspot, which means both sire and dam are Appys, which would make him "all Appy". As to his pedigree mix, hard to say. He is tall and light boned for his size, so he could have TB in his pedigree, or he might have come out of some taller halter or sporthorse lines, although he has more of a WP build, which would suggest QH influence.

    As I said - pretty clueless...just speculating...
