    He's beautiful. I also wondered if he were crossbred, because of the amount of hair and even feather, he has. I guess I'm not used to seeing Appaloosas with hair and feather.

    A long time ago, I had a beautiful Appy for a little while. I will have to dig out a photo of her. She was pretty famous in the show ring out here in California. Went to Florida and then came back to Cal.

    Do you pronounce his name "Roy" or in the French manner, meaning "King"
    ("Ruah")?

    Are you talking Appalousa, like that bred by the Nez Perce Indians? He looks more like the Knabstrupper horses of Europe.

    He is quite grand, for sure.

    Knabstruppers and appys probably are distantly related.

    History says that when the Native americans were taken over by the white man that their horses were bred out by the Calvary.. they bred a lot of draft etc in. So when a collective effort came back to bring back the appaloosa... basically anything of color was allowed in the registry.... and they allowed outcrossing to Morgans, TB, and Arabians to name a few. So they actually do have quite a bit of mixed blood a ways back. Now the appaloosa varies in type from crossed out Quarter horses (the downfall of the ApHC IMO! They should of closed stud books many years ago)

    To lighter horses who excel in distance work etc. I personally strive to produce all around horses who excel in many disciplines.


    His name is pronounced Roy.. ROI means Return on Investment :)
    Eclat means a type of sweet. ... and non pareil is basically a sprinkle like is put on cupcakes :)

    Interesting. There are indeed many spotted type horses and ponies across the world. I suppose we will never truly know the background of many. Apart from colour though, when I think of a large Appaloosa horse, I think of one with a bit of meat and body about him. Maybe more like a good size QH. This not of course, of Gypsies and Miniature Horses, which also have Appy colouring. Did you mean 'cavalry' in your post?

    yes I did mean that. They actually have done research.. on the LP gene.. so all horses who have it.. were I guess obviously related at one point in time :)
