Trying to figure out what he is?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I bought this horse on a sale on Sat. He doesn't have any paperwork, we also don't know if the Coggins that came with him are even his. The Coggins had no age, name or any distinguishing info. One lady we spoke to said she had him for 5 years (we never even got a name from her) but that didn't match up w/ Coggins either! He is very calm and broke to ride and I love him already I'm just curious. He (Camo) is 16'1-16'2 about 1350lbs and so many different colors! I'm sure he a combo of 2 horses so we may never know what he is. Also we haven't ridden him yet but he seems to be gaited. Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Oh gosh, that's...interesting ! Lol ;) He looks like a palomino appaloosa... but those are some unusual markings. His skin is most likely mottled, which is not uncommon in some palominos, I think. Is he losing hair anywhere? Does he have some sort of fungus? Maybe he is inbetween coats and will shed (or grow) that palomino color out... I honestly am stumped by this feller.

No he is not shedding (or growing) he has an ear fungus that prevents us from putting a headstall on. Those are his colors! We have no clue, and appaloosas aren't gaited, he moves out like my spotted saddle.

Yes... I know appys aren't gaited. We are taking stabs at what he may be crossed between, right? Have you ever heard of a Walkaloosa?

Yes I have but I have never seen either breed built like he is. But it is a possibility thank u.

There are a lot of possibilities. I think one thing can be for certain - he has appaloosa in there somewhere. Or there's a grey gene in there....honestly a first for me

I thought the original appys, as in Chief Joseph's were gaited to a certain extent.

On extremely rare occasions, I think some have a "shuffle". I've seen it in a foundation quarter horse. He was gaited, but pure QH. Very strange.
