What a gorgeous boy christabelle! And definitely do not hold your breath for Lp to show up haha I have a half appy half QH gelding that is now 2 years old who I was hoping would show Lp of some kind. However he has not. Look on your boy for mottling on the muzzle, genitals and around the eyes, and for verticle hoof striping. My boy doesn't have these appy characteristics but if your boy does then there may be hope after all!
Hope the poor guy grows into those adorable, but large, ears LOL.
Oh, and definitely red dun... I just noticed the shoulder barring as well.
If you can't get papers for him from the BLM, you can still register him with a separate agency/foundation. When I got Dobe, I got a sheet in his paperwork that listed a bunch of different places where I could get registration papers for him that would identify his markings, his ID number and/or parent's ID numbers. I would be able to tell you except I have apparently misplaced Dobe's paperwork .
His mommy has mule ears (sorry galaxy it's true!) so I think they are there to stay ;) He will be adorable in a mustang kind of way. I was wondering about the brand because I believe titled and branded mustangs have some protections, also without those to anyone but me he is a grade horse. It does not matter to much though because he is staying in this family. I will look into that info smrobs... Thank you so much. Your Dobe is such a handsome guy! Posted via Mobile Device
