What color is he?
 
I just can't figure out what color my little boy is. I'm not all in on the color thing. He is a pure breed Appaloosa

Mother is double white and father is Red Roan I believe.

Looks to me like a snowcap that varnished very quickly or greyed out. Leaning more towards varnish though.

Grey for sure. Varnish doesn't progress on the face like that.

The sire appears to be snowcap chestnut, but not red roan. I think that it appears your guy was chestnut (or possibly bay) snowcap that went gray.

Yep, gray. One of the reasons why gray is sort of frowned on in Appy breeding circles. You lose sight of all those gorgeous markings.

Man, Daddy is beautiful!

he is grey. Looks like Mommas coloring. Appys tend to change .

Absolutely correct. As grey as grey can be. Too bad - looks like he is a snowcap...
