Great post faceman!
I was going to say he looks like a lighter base version of a filly my family has... Though she colored out way faster, she's 5 now, I think, and she has varnished out, the black spots show much clearer...though you could see them before ifyou looked very closely. She also has some white spots on her dark coat like this colt. When this filly was born she was black with two white snowflakes on her rump. Now she looks almost grey, with some spots in white and black, I should see about getting some photos of her.
Her full sister is a pretty typical snowcap... Also black. She is starting to varnish a bit, if my memory serves.
Her sire is a bay blanket with spots, but also has these darker bay spots on him, not where the white is. They are kind of neat... It makes him look a bit like a leopard someone dipped in brown paint! His sire was a bay with blanket and spits and his **** a leopard which was born more solid and "leoparded out".
Her dam is a bay varnish roan, only 1/2 Appy. No spots that we've ever seen, she is now 19/20 years old. Was born solid bay. Her sire was a bay with blanket and spots, her dam was Arab/QH, possibly bay, but was grey.
Appy patterns make my head spin!
Regardless of what his pattern is, he is a very attractive colt!
