Appy yearling.....varnish roan?
I posted this girl a while back before clipping and it was unknown what was underneath. At that time you all said she could spot out more or just stay lacey. NOW she has a lot of roaning.....would she be a varnish roan even if her legs are not staying dark or could she roan out mostly white too? These pictures are a month after clipping. These appys are WIERD but very VERY interesting....

I vote for varnish roan as with VR, the entire body including legs roan out. It just keeps color on the bony points like shins, facial plains, knees, etc. (the areas look like shadows). Do you see the pixs of the hocks where their is solid color on the bottom outside, and roaning everywhere else? That is typical of VR.

Well, I still think the dam is throwing Sabino into the mix, and that could be accelerating the varnish, she doesn't actually have any more spots......
She could end up white, and then everyone will insist she is a Fewspot....just smile and take their money :laugh1

Really too 'early' to say if that's something like sabino roaning or varnish roaning. Skeets is like that, as is Princess, and all they've done is mix white in with the coloured hairs. I'd stick with lacy blanket.

Sure seems too fast to be anything but varnish.

Is it just my monitor or does the mare look grey to you with dappling rather than a few spot?
