That's sort of a shame that they'd register horses like that. It seems the true Appaloosas are just diminishing and being taken over by QH and arab appy crosses. But since that boy is a gelding I don't consider it as bad if he were registered. It's just when they breed away all the original qualities of a cool horse it makes me a bit angry that they would be so lenient.

Moe is quite the character. I'll attach some pictures from when we first brought our mare home. He has his head held high aswell as his tail while he's prancing around. That's the only horse he'd been with for a while, so he had reason to be quite happy. And this would be the first time he got to show off for a mare in a quite long time. XD Those moments are when he seems most arab to me. X3

He didn't quite understand why she kept on running away, though. :/ But that fat mare only trotted a few strides before she just stopped and munched on the grass.

I agree about the registration, it seems true appies are either gone or never really existed depending on how you look at it...

He looks just like my boy when I brought my new mare home. I agree with you on the registration. I have no desire to register him with him being a cross breed and a gelding. No point in my eyes. Wont make me love him any more :)

Also, what camera do you have? Beautiful clarity in your pictures, I love it. I am a shutterbug, I had a Canon 300D but it died on me the other day. :(

I actually use my mother's camera. It's a Nikon D5000. It does quite a bit of justice to Moe, I'd say. But horses like my mare, Sadie, just aren't photogenic. She's a major fatty, but Moe somehow keeps himself conditioned rather well. He's always been like that, too. Perhaps it's just his hot-headedness that keeps him running around like some sort of crazed lion.

Also, on the topic of an Arab x Appaloosa, I believe they are sometimes called an Araloosa. Just one of them fancy names that pretty much mean nothing. (Like a Labradoodle dog, or a Border Jack.)

I've never heard of the word Sarmadee, but I believe Sarmadi means something in arabic. I saw it somewhere but I can't find it again.

Not sure there is any such thing as a 'true' Appaloosa.

"A significant crossbreeding influence used to revitalize the Appaloosa was the Arabian horse, as evidenced by early registration lists which show Arabian-Appaloosa crossbreeds as ten of the first fifteen horses registered with the ApHC.[62] For example, one of Claude Thompson's major herd sires was Ferras, an Arabian stallion bred by W.K. Kellogg from horses imported from the Crabbet Arabian Stud of England.[63] Ferras then sired Red Eagle, a prominent Appaloosa stallion,[63] who was added to the Appaloosa Hall of Fame in 1988. Later, Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse lines were added, as well as crosses from other breeds, including Morgans and Standardbreds.[64] In 1983, the ApHC reduced the number of allowable outcrosses to three main breeds: the Arabian horse, the American Quarter Horse and the Thoroughbred.[65]"

Those are expensive cameras, but clearly worth the money! I looked through some of your other pictures, Moe is very beautiful and fit for sure! Your mare looks like mine, although I've cut back her feed a little bit from what the people before me were feeding her...8lbs a day for a horse that isnt even getting ridden (Im pregnant) was WAY too much in my eyes.

I have heard of the Araloosa...I had never heard of Sarmadee either until that woman mentioned it to me. Afterwards, I looked it up online, and from what I found its a name of a breeding farm "Sarmadee Arabians"..maybe that's where she got it from. They cross Arabians and Appaloosas...and upon further reading their site actually does refer to the breed as Araloosas.

Bsms - Perhaps not. But my thought of a "true appaloosa" is mainly the Appaloosas that the native americans had. So I really like the look of alot of "Foundation" Appaloosas, so any one of them that look obviously like other breeds sort of dissappoint me.

TxCntrySweetheart - That was exactally it! That's where I saw it, too. For some reason I thought it was spelt different, but my mind plays tricks with me all the time. XD That's sort of wierd that someone would think a farm name is an actual breed in general.

The camera was definitely worth the money. My dad got it as a gift to my mother because she takes just a buttload of pictures. Of course the ones she actually uses are usually mine. -.-

Ironically the spotted horses of the Nez and other tribes had almost no influence in the Appaloosa breed. Most of the first registered (and therefore foundation) were grade and many Ben then were part or mostly quarter horse, Arab, tb an of course their were Morgans, drafts, some Spanish mustangs were cross registered with the ApHc, but now outcrosses are only Arab, QH and TB
