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

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

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.)
