He looks like a blue roan with rabicano markings to me. Still LOVE him, BTW! :)

He looks black in the before-clipping-picture. I don't see a whole lot of roan, but often times it doesn't show up well in photos unless there's a lot of it. I'm actually more interested in the white patch on his bum. Appy patterns are the only ones I know of that will concentrate white there, but it could also be an environmental factor like lacing. How long have you had him? Has that white patch always been there/has it changed at all over time?

Only have had him for 4 months & yes he has had that since he got his winter coat in

Looks Blue roan to me as well, My roan gets more white concentrated on his butt, like an appy before he sheds out, but does NOT have any appy characteristics, and is 100% QH...
Another thing with clipping color differences I find especially with roans is that it really does change their color the most...my mini roan for example...

Roan. Not Grulla. Grulla hair is the same color from the shaft to the tip, Roan is a solid color with white mixed throughout. Varnish is a term used for Appys .

Again, no horse has hair the same colour from root to tip. It's been shown right here in this thread - this is why clipped horses are a different colour to their unclipped coats. Also, varnish is a term used for horse (or ponies) that display the roaning associated with the leopard complex. It is not restricted in the slightest to horses of the Appaloosa breed.

Exactly Chiilaa. That's part of the reason I posted Reminic In Spots. He's 100% AQHA but still has appaloosa characteristics... So does his sister and his dam.
