What is Casper?
Well I was curious. I don't know his exact breeding. One person told me he is arab x paint, another arab x quarter horse.They aren't exactly sure. But I thought he was dapple gray? but he has this kind of roan spot...What is his color considered and what do you think his breeding might be? The pictures mightn not be good enough to guess breeding but..
A very dirty Casper after he rolled...
roan spots. I just brushed him so he's clean. no dirt :)
It looks more reddish on person. also, his dapples are the same color.
I am not as good at picking colours from photos as I want to be. So I am going to have a guess before the experts get in...
My instinct is telling me he is a varnish roan appy.
Looks more appy than paint to me.
He looks like a rose gray.
Have you considered that he might be part Appalousa?
How does this horse move? How does he tend to hold his tail when excited? That dished face, croup and appy coloring looks pretty straightforward ara-appaloosa to me. I vote Arabian/appaloosa hands down.
AraAppaloosa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I have considered him being part appy. No one ever tld me he had any in him though so I just kinda went with paint...hah. He doesn't hold his tail up like an arab though. And I always thought arabs were a little high-strung and had lots of stamina, but Casper is extremely lazy.
appy cross to me... But I'm awful at breeds... :-P
I have rode full blooded arabs before that were the quietest and most reliable of kids horses. They are not all nutty for sure. It may not be arab but his face and croup look araby from here. Dont foget he is certainly a cross and that can tone the arab blood down also.
Better pictures and a video would help but from the little we can see..im pretty sure hes an app cross. The coloring is 100% an app color. He looks like a bay varnish roan. He will change colors and keep lightening over the years a little or even a lot season by season.
Id talk to an appy person who really knows their stuff...i think they could give you good info.
AH! Another thought....He could also be a POA! They are commonly app colored smaller horses and ponies who can have dishy little faces...Certainly a possiblity.
At first glance, I'd say he's grey with a blood marking. His base coat would have been chestnut, hence the marking being reddish, as well as his flea bites being red. No idea on the breed though.
