MOST Appaloosas now are spotted Quarter Horses... but thats a whole nother argument for a whole nother thread LOL

I love my Appy... but he was fortunate enough to get alot of foundation look to him, and the Indian Shuffle which is totally neat

That second stallion is absolutely gorgeous... Killer mover!

I really want a Appy/Fresian, they make for gorgeous crosses! Just look at this guy [http://www.designsporthorse.com/Gran...ign%20New.htm].
Pretty close! Appaloosa is technically a breed while the spotting is called "Leopard Complex" in the genetics world. There are other breeds of horse with spotting that are unrelated (in the past few hundred years) to the modern Appaloosa breed.

The horse that is the main topic of discussion in this thread is obviously part Friesian - but there are half-Knabstrupper crosses out there that look similarly like Friesians with spots. There was one on Mystic Warrior's breeders sites as well. :)

Would likely never happen with a leopard especially one with a white mane and tail.

... How could this not happen with a leopard, just because of the white mane and tail?

Color genetics don't have anything to do with how thick/thin a horses mane and tail are.

Color genetics don't have anything to do with how thick/thin a horses mane and tail are.

Actually the LP gene (leopard complex) has a lot to do with how thick and long a mane and tail can be as our research has found out. The LP gene tends to affect the black mane and tail hairs the most during the "roaning" process, causing the black hairs to become very delicate as they are being replaced by white which makes them break off. It also affects the red hairs, but generally not to the same extent. I have LP horses that went from having total rat tails to having full, normal looking tails now that they are completely white. Whether the tail becomes full or not depends upon how quickly this process occurs - sometimes it is extremely fast and sometimes so slow that a horse will have a rat tail forever. There are many, many other genetic factors involved that either suppress or enhance this roaning process. True leopard patterned (PATN1) horses are born that way and do not go through the LP roaning process, whereas varnish roan (patn/patn) or blanketed (PATN2) all display this roaning to some degree. Besides this, there are individual family traits involved as variations of mane and tail thickness/length occurs in all breeds.

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that my Remmelt 323 mare is confirmed in foal to the Knabstrupper stallion, Colorado Skrodstrup. The baby will be a Dressage machine. My Grand Prix Dressage trainer/rider really likes her. She has hair down to her forearm and down to her nose right now. Keep an eye out for the baby in May, 2012! Check both out at my website: www.foxhillfarm.yolasite.com
