What Is he?

This is my horse. He looks like his skin is spotted but the hair grew in white with the rest of him! Some black and some brown came throw on his spots but that's it. Now they look almost indented!

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question of the question wrong!

I'm not sure why the OP keeps making different threads asking what breed this horse might be. One is sufficient.

I was just wondering the correct wording for his color that's all...

I would agree with texasgal but I am no Appy expert so perhaps one will post!

Leopard with grey. That is what he is. His spots are still semi-visible because grey only affects the hair pigment, not the skin pigment. So while the hair turns white, the skin below stays black, and can be visible through a summer coat or wet coat.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I agree, although looking at the size of some of the skin spots, which are substantially larger than normal Appy spots, I wouldn't rule out the possibility he is a grey Pintaloosa...
