    I will bet that he is certainly a red base and he looks to me like a dark or liver chestnut (which would explain the black-ish spots).

    Beautiful coloring.

    Not a black base. Legs scream red base. I say a basic varnish chestnut.

    Yeah, I was thinking that it would be weird for his legs and mane to be that dirty blonde color with a black base. Of course, I have no idea how much Appy color can affect mane and tail color.

    He is very sexxy! I think that coupled with his "hunky" build he is a rather stunning horse. I was given the opportunity to buy him, but he was way out of my price range.

    Chestnut is his color, Varnish roaning is his pattern.

    Chestnut. Lp, the appy gene (that gave him his varnish roan) does funky things to shades.

    He is in his twenties now, so I think he is done changing colors. I have known this horse for about 6+ years now, and he got a little whiter in that time, but not much.

    Hes defiantly not a black base because if he was the bottom of his legs would be black and so would his mane tail. Therefore he would be a bay. General rule. Bays got black on there legs.... Other colors do not.

    Lemme correct my post a little bit.... Other colors do not besides Bays Buckskins or Duns. Reds never have black legs....
