Yes I know, but her question implied that browns MUST have black legs and therefore the horse in question can not possibly be a brown because it doesn't have black legs, mane, tail..... which is untrue. Most browns do not have the black, some do, but most do not.

well I know bays have black points too. I was just under the impression that brown is basically like bay, but instead of a red color with black points it was a darker almost black color. I still kind of stick with liver chesnut though. In one of the photos that shows the muzzle up closer. It kind of looks like the "mealyness" of the muzzle could be caused by the mottling of the appy color. Most darker appies have lighter noses because the hair on the nose is thinner and the mottling shows through alot more giving it a pinker hue.

Browns do the not have any different of points than bays do. They are both black based with agouti restricting black I the different ways.

The horse in the op is not liver chestnut. It is black based. It has to be with the sire homozygous black. This is a good example of what LP and PATN can do to a base color.

I believe the official ApHC designation for your Appy would be Funky Sienna Varnish Roan Blanket With Spots...

I like the explanation, that makes sense. I don't know much about the color genetics except for my own horse ha ha. So what color would you call the horse, I don't think you stated an actual color guess....

haha I didn't even consider the fact that the sire was homozygous.. lol! I posted a thread a good while back of an appaloosa sport horse. That was born grulla. And is genetically grulla. But at 2 years old her color turned palomino. Even though she was STILL genetically grulla. It is crazzy what Lp can do.
