Its an appaloosa pattern. I don't know enough to say it only occurs in the Appy breed though.

Looks like a black based roan to me, also known as blue roan.

The reason for not using a clipped horse's coat for judging the colour is that the hair shaft is not the same colour all the way down. As well as that, the colour is also being influenced by the colour of the skin below, while longer hair is not. Here is an example of how inaccurate clipped coats are in terms of relation to the real colour of the horse:

Roan. Definitely not a grullo imo

This is my friends Grullo gelding in the summer the most he ever bleaches out

And in winter he usually gets lighter on his back and rump but this pic doesnt show it

And they will have some or all of the following markings- dark face, cobwebbing around the eyes and forehead, dark mottling on the body, leg barring (sometimes called tiger striping), dark ear tips and edging, dark ear barring, dark shadowing of the neck, dark dorsal and transverse striping, and dark mane and tail guard hairs.
As you can see with my friends horse, he has the dark face, dark eartips and edging, leg bars, dark dorsal and the dark mane/tail

Which I don't see with your horse but that's just my opinion. I could be wrong

He looks blue roan to me. I don't see a dorsal stripe or any leg baring like you'd see in a grulla or other dun colored horses.

Yeah I definitely I'm thinking blue as well

He could very well have appaloosa characteristics and be an AQHA...

What's his breeding?

This guy IS AQHA registered and DNA verified.

I would say blue roan. Im not the most experienced horse person but he is more of a purpley color(that blues have), than a dull reddish that a grulla would have. :) be proud, blue roans are beautiful, especially yourss!
