Well, he is a walkaloosa and they have discovered that the silver gene is in some bloodlines in the Tennessee Walking Horses, so maybe his TWH parent was a silver carrier and that's what that is.

Ahh that could very well be. I did not look at the add other then the picture. I should say I did not read it and I just skimmed the thread.

Could he be any other color besides a silver black blanket varnish then?

With the coat colors on horses being so variable from horse to horse, the only way to know 100% for sure what color he is is to have him tested. Really, all we can do is speculate from a couple of pictures.

His base color could be brown or even liver chestnut. He could be a very dark silver bay. There is just no way to know for sure.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

black based, I.e. He could be black or bay or brown. I highly doubt he is red based though.

So how much would you guys pay for a horse like this one? I'm not really seriously interested in buying him, but I'm just wondering what would be a smart offer to send them if I couldn't find anything else locally.

Personally, I would save his listing only as a last resort. But if it came to that, I don't know that I would go higher than a couple hundred. There are just too many warning bells for me to dish out much, especially their asking price.

In my area, I can get a well bred, well conformed, well started, registered horse for that price.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I was seriously thinking that these people had to be smoking something lol for them to think that this horse was worth that much. I was thinking that I wouldn't pay over $500 for him and even that would be pushing it.

My family has a black Appy filly (two bay parents) with a snowcap and a white tail, and partially white mane like that. The Appy gene can do some strange things to coat color.

Her full sister is also black - was born a snowflake (very few flakes though) and ended up wildly colored (most of her black has faded to a steel grey, but she has these white "dapple" like markings all over her body)... again with the white mane and tail (what little of each she has LOL).

We haven't DNA tested either of them... but as far as we know the only gene they could carry which would explain it would be the Lp gene.
