What Color and pattern would you consider my Appy.
This is Kelo. Towering a whole 16hh. He is brighter soral in the summer and grey in the winter. Help. :D Sorry if the photos come out to big.

This is early fall.

This is early spring.

Early December if I can remember correctly.

I cant find a good summer pic but this showes a bit more of the red.

Sorry I have no help with your question but I usually do not like how appys look and are colored but he is GORGEOUS! His color and markings are different and look awesoome :)

i'd guess he started out as a chestnut with blanket and has the varnish taking over.

The only thing that is really weird is that he has some leopard spots in there.

He has a blanket and Varnish. He does not have "leopard spots." Some of the spots were probably in his blanket and the rest are being revealed as varnish progresses, which is 110% normal.

Yea, Hes probably some sort of Chestnut/Sorrel (whichever you prefer) on his base, he also looks to have a spotted blanket (you can tell because the varnish roaning is not effecting the clean spots on his butt/torso, that means they are true Appy spots not just a gray horse with odd marks)
He has some Varnishing, so probably will gain more substance with age.
He also must have some sort of gene causing his socks & face marking. I can't really tell what exactly, but they wouldn't be there if he didn't have one, My guess would be Splash and/or Sabino but That could be wrong.

NdAppy is correct on the pattern...spots is spots. He is a freaking moose...

I think Appy means tall by 'moose'. I think...
