That certainly is unusual. I'm really curious now.
That certainly is interesting. My first thought was OMG that horse is giraffe colored! But it looks close to a pattern that's seen with traditionally with dapple grays, it's just that this horse has a chestnut base as opposed to a black one. http://www.thehorseguide.com/images/DappleGrey.jpg
I'm interested to hear what others think though. It's definitely a horse of a different color :lol:

If there is a registered Appalousa, then THAT is the color. I think he's a red roan, myself.

FYI the Craigslist ad states that the horse is a papered saddlebred.
In the picture of the black based grey that Ink shared, the white areas are the circle parts of the dapple pattern with the dark body hairs making a lace pattern. The chestnut has what appears to be a white lace pattern over the entire body. What interests me the most is how the face is colored. That isn't a normal coloring, especially when you look at what happens up by the forelock. Compare that to a giraffe, I don't think this is a roan or a grey. IMO

i still think the horse is regular chesnut with lacing and some kind of pinto gene to create the bald face.

Could it be from fungus? I know a lot of lacing is caused from fungus.
