Question What in the world is this colorful guy's color?

OKay, so I was browsing through my local CL and I happened to stumble across this wonderfully colored guy. What on earth would you call this color? Either way, would you pay their asking price for him?

I'm not an appy expert, but I'm guessing he has the varnish gene, though I could be wrong, he's definitely a blanket appy with some other gene that is making his mane and tail light while the base color is dark. I would be worried about the fact that he's only 2, and they've already run him around barrels a few times, and they make it sound like they've been riding him a lot, which isn't good for a horse that's only 2, not to mention he's not gelded yet, and you'd have to do that if you bought him, as he's not stud material. The price itself isn't too bad (at least for my area), but there are other reasons why I wouldn't buy him.

No I would not pay that price. I bet he sheds out lighter but he sure is an interesting color now I think he'll be really light once he's older.

Hm.. I'm not sure with the winter coat, but he might just be a chocolate palomino appy.

Definitely not worth $2k. I have no idea about the color. It is pretty cool but well .... not my cup of tea.

Are you looking for a walker? I'm in western Kentucky and there are tons of nice, nice walkers to be had for $300-500.

I can't say on his color. He is certainly a blanket appy but he could also have some varnish in there.

Either way, NO, I would most certainly not pay that much for him. There are so many red flags being sent up in my brain reading that ad that I probably wouldn't even bother to look at him.

Sunedee, yes I am looking for a nice walker. I wouldn't mind running into a very very nicely colored up gelding for a great price that has a great running walk gait instead of a rack which is what my mare has already. I'd like for it to have some spunk to it, but still gentle and laid back. If the horse has papers, fine. If not, fine. I'm basically looking for something to get into showing with.

Looks like a Silver dapple black, blanket appaloosa to me.

Check around middle/eastern Tennessee. That's where a good portion of show walkers are, and those things are going a dime a dozen.

As far as I know, silver is not present in appaloosas at this time. I do agree that he looks silver by his mane and tail. He is a blanket, varnish, black based appaloosa.
