I have a question for all you appy lovers.I don't own an appy but am interested in all breeds.We went to looked at some horses that a man had for sale and he had an appy with a blue eye the first thing I thought was there was some paint in the back ground.He had the coat pattern of an appy but never thought they could have blue eyes. The man said he was registered but I never seen the papers because he wasn't what we were there to looked at in the first place.Just curious to know.

There are a several things that make an appy an appy.

I forget most....but I think that one of the things is that the whites of there eyes show....I expect I am wrong...I think I will go look it up.

Alright I found it.....

Although Appaloosas are most commonly recognized by their colorful coat patterns, they also have other distinctive characteristics. The four identifiable characteristics are: coat pattern, mottled skin, white sclera, and striped hooves. In order to receive regular registration, a horse must have a recognizable coat pattern or mottled skin and one other characteristic. Horses which receive regular registration are issued numbers (no letters precede the number.) Those not displaying a coat pattern or mottled skin and one other characteristic will be classified as non-characteristic (N/C)) and their registration numbers preceded by the letter "N." Horses which complete the Certified Pedigree Option (CPO) program are issued numbers preceded by the letters "CN."
