Maybe a roan. Not sure about that but I LOVE the name. How cute

I got told Blue Roan, but he's not really that blue colour so im not sure. Plus he has the spots around his mouth & eyes..
& yeah I love his name too lol suits him. He's a sweetie :)

To my knowledge a roan is supposed to have a dark head and legs and you can clearly see light coloring on his face, if he's a roan there is also something else working on his coloring there. Very cute!

Looks like he is carrying LP (appaloosa coloring), or grey. Hard to tell with just the one picture.

That was my thought from the one photo too.

He looks like a varnish grey to me. Possibly with a snowflake pattern? As he's got larger white spots.

Yup I say Varnish roan, especially if he is on the younger side of things. With either a snowflake pattern or MAYBE fewspot but i'm not so sure on that one. Gorgeous boy either way!

I don't think he's all that young, I think he's about 8 im not too sure i'll have to ask her. So you definitely think he has appy in him? He came from a dealer so we have no idea lol
