    I just noticed Spirit's "skunk" strip down his front legs, that's really neat!

    OP, stunning, stunning boys. Absolutely drooling over them both.

    My appaloosa filly is a good example of one with a high percentage of AQHA breeding. The furthest back I can trace her appaloosa ancestry is "gray appaloosa mare, 1946". That said, she is a pretty amazing horse regardless, but if I ever breed her, it will be to a shuffling foundation stallion. I think its a shame they don't close the stud books, its getting to the point with many registered appaloosas that they are just quarter horses, sometimes without even the spots!

    Common in appaloosas :) they are called "lightening" marks

    Some more pix of them. Spirit was also born with an S on his left shoulder

    Yes I agree. While I have no problem with outcrossing I don't believe the results of them should be considered purebred.. there should either be a separate registry.. or they should only allow one outcross every x number of generations

    Right now .. there is not a single purebred Appaloosa (purebred is described scientifically as 8 generations or purebred breeding.)
