    What type of appy is this?

    My friend's son recently bought an appy for me. I'm just wondering if it's just a plain ole blanket or something else.

    The appy appears to be a snowcap to me as well. Hard to tell from just the one picture, but why does no one think the appy is a bay?

    Face, if you look at his legs they are sorrel all the way down. On a bay they would be black. This horse is just a sorrel/chestnut with a darker red mane. So dark that in a picture that's as difficult to see as this one that you cannot rely on it to be certain of the color. You have to look at the points. Which are the legs, the nose, the ears.

    The funny thing is, the horse actually has a black mane but no points on it's legs. And it is a beautiful appaloosa, however, it's 1/2 spanish mustang, so unfortunately, unregistered. I'll look into getting better pics.

    Most likely it's the sooty gene making his coat, mane, and tail dark.

    What TB said Face. Look towards the feet. The legs are too red to be a black based horse.
