Well I wouldn't jump right to appy as there is more then one breed that carries the appy coloring. :)

But yes he does look to be varnish (LP) roan.

I agree on LP roaning (also called varnish-- associated with appaloosa coloring.) I see LP characteristic mottled skin and white sclera around the eyeball.

>>>>MAYBE fewspot

A fewspot is not a minimally spotted DARK horse, but a white horse with only a few spots. More specifically, it is a horse with a leopard pattern, but 2 copies of the LP gene, which causes the leopard spots to be few and far between, due to the doubling up of LP's "be white" command. Here is a baby fewspot--

No-- I have bred/raised several fewspots in the past, but don't have leopards in my herd currently, so I don't have any photos of fewspots online at the moment.

That foal was bred by a ranch in South Dakota-- Nice program with alot of loud color, and she takes striking photos-- here is the link to their site-- CT Ranch Appaloosas

Thank you for the link. I know someone who has one of their horses. (Didn't realize it until I saw it on their site.)

I'm seeing spots.

What an amusing name and so appropriate! I once tried to research all the horse color combinations and memorize them. There were so many it made my head spin! Then I read a book that said there are actually only two horse colors! Id say Measles is grey with white spots and my grandkids would probably agree.

Im sure that the people at the US Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Division will know the actual color, you could try sending them a couple of photos. Heres the link: https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/index.php

On the bold - That is totally correct! Black and red are the only two colors. Everything else is a modification of one of those two.
