Do not ask the registry to guess the color of your horse. Registries are notoriously behind in the world of color genetic and are wrong quite often.

Okay then plan B, guess. Oh well, I will figure something out when it isn't 1 am. I will also have the time to decide because the membership will take a few weeks. (snail mail and all) then I have to.take photos to send in and yeah, I have awhile to think of something.

Having striped hooves doesn't necessarily mean that she is an appy. It just means that the skin right beside the coronet is a different colour. My mare has one hoof that is half white and half black. That's because she has a half coronet band on the side that is white. X) But she's not an appy. XD Sorry for the parenthesis but I just wanted to clear up any misunderstandings.

For her colour, she's an appy for sure but I wouldn't know what kind. And, I'm with Poseidon, don't e-mail the registry. They'll just throw you off tracks.

We have figured it out she has a roan pattern. Thank you to the appaloosa horse club for having descriptions of the patterns.

And she is a rescue so we have no information or pictures other then birth year, name and the pictures from this year we took of her, literally.

But here is one with less glare, however she is tacked up:
Not to go off topic, but you might consider checking that saddle to make sure it fits her right. It looks pretty unbalanced to me.

Keep in mind that it is a varnish roan, not a classic roan. That is a different gene.

Agree with the varnish roan, chestnut base.. She looks a lot like my old Appy.

Definitely a classic example of the varnishing affect on a horse. She has the stripes of chestnut color on her face next to the blaze and the color left on her legs in particular around the joints.
