    I was just re-reading this thread and came across this thought--

    >>>> From what I have read this is not enough even for the restricted registration. She basically looks like a Quarter Horse, she has a really thick tail and mane, which I know is not a official characteristic but all the ones I have known have had thin mane and tail.

    Let me reiterate-- a horse from acceptable breeding (at least on regular registered ApHC parent, and the other parent an ApHC horse or a registered horse from the list of ApHC approved breeds) can be 100% totally solid with not one Appaloosa trait and still be eligible for ApHC registration with an "N" (Noncharacteristic) prefix.

    Below are 3 solid, registered Appaloosa mares. These mares all have blanketed Appaloosa sires-- the chestnut mare has a chestnut AQHA dam, the red dun has a palomino Appaloosa colored dam, and the palomino mare has a chestnut solid Appaloosa dam.

    All of these mares have had registered Appaloosa foals. Because they are solid, they must be bred to colored ApHC registered stallions for their foals to be ApHC eligible (but their foals are eligible for registration whether solid or colored-- solids are registerable with an N prefix and are breedable, but are not showable at ApHC shows unless a Permit is applied for and a fee paid, etc.)

    The ApHC likes to be helpful (most of the time). If you know the names of who she was registered with give them a call and see if they can help you.


    Eastowest, great posts!

    I too have one. My gelding most people think is a paint. Buckskin with four white legs and a big white blaze.
    He is out of colored appy parents.
    He was CPOd (back when they called it that) and I can show him at appy shows even.

    Ok, thanks Eastowest and Alwaysbehind that clears that up. I was getting confused ready some of the different sites as they were saying some conflicting things.

    I may try to give ApHA a call. I know her age, her last registered owners name and her barn name may be part of her registared name. I also know the barn name of the colt that she had right before he bought her. The problem is my uncle is no longer able to communicate very well and sometimes he will try really hard to answer our questions but we can not always get an answer. He has communicated her age and that he did get papers when he bought her.
