What's going on with this horse's color?

This guy is an appaloosa for sale in my area and his color really intrigues me. It looks like he has spots, but not really, and then he also has that one area of white. Will he get white spots? Or will he remain solid with those darker spots on his rump? He's a 3 year old.

Those hooves don't look striped enough to me, and his skin isn't mottled. To me, it looks like he has spots without a white pattern. I know that appy spots can be darker than the rest of the horse... but I didn't think that it would 'activate' without white.

I think I will wait for ND and Faceman on this one :-P

He is being advertised as 100% foundation bred, and he is registered.

They don't look like Bend Or spots to me. Too uniform and centralised if you know what I mean?

No help sorry but I think he is beautiful. I'm interested to see what people think.

Yeah, they seem way too numerous to be bend or spots. Here's the other side:

Does it say what type of registration he has? Doesn't the ApHC have a section for appy bred horses with no characteristics?

QHDragon 07-05-2011 10:09 PM

He has ApHC papers. Registered name is "S an R Samsun," but I have no way of looking him up.

QHDragon 07-05-2011 10:10 PM

Ugh, HF keeps changing "R" to "are." The are should be "R" :lol:
