    LP can do strange things to base color and "erase" the dark legs of black-based horses. That said, I do believe that this is a chestnut Appaloosa "roan."

    Here's another picture that kinda, sorta shows those couple of spots he has:

    Wish I had some better pictures of him. :(

    I found this interesting: A friend of mine called the ApHC last week to ID a horse she'd bought, and they told her that they no longer recognize "varnish roan" as a color, or at least as a proper term. Now it's plain "roan," which to me is misleading and too easily confused with the KIT gene in Quarter Horses and other breeds.

    They are bottom adjust leathers. I had them made for me by Gary's Leather. They were about $60 shipped, so cost me the same as regular leathers and they have my initials on the buckle covers. I would recommend him to anybody!

    He sort of looks like the red roan at my barn...not sure though. He looks like he is at least some kind of roan.

    Hi, what is LP? Linda Parelli? LMAO..just kidding. But seriously, what are you guys referring to when you keep saying "LP"?
        02-25-2011, 03:56 PM
    LP and PATN are what cause the appaloosa coloring. LP tends to cause more varnish roaning when it is alone or with PATN.

    This is my grade appy mare. This is just a short slide show showing home LP roaning (varnish roaning) can progress. Click to view it.

    Lol No I have all boys. That is the daughter of the woman I bought Phoenix from. The first pictures with her in "training" were at their place. The most recent picture in that is the one with the storm clouds and her being extremely overweight, and that was 2+ years ago.

    Here she was the other day in winter woolies -

    She'll be whiter come spring and she sheds out.
