I run appaloosas, so I would say YES! But a lot of the appy barrel horses have a lot of QH and TB in them. Paints are another good option to look at. I guess a lot of it has to do with how competitive you want to be, and on what kind of circuit. I just got my 5 year old appy mare to the point where I can send her off to the trainer for her barrel/pole foundation, and I picked her up for under $1500. I have a friend who is a "breed snob" and he tells me all the time how great a horse she will turn into. He wouldn't mind owning her, so I know she's good, LOL.
