I have 9 Appaloosas on my farm at the present time,and their personalities vary quite a bit. I have 3 that are very quiet, willing, and affectionate, one that is very sweet but also smart and naughty, one that tends to be shy and almost panicky, one that tries hard but is clumsy and accident prone, one that is super athletic, talented, kind of hot, but absolutely loves people and would do anything asked as long as it was explained so she could understand (and who I would NEVER put an inexperienced rider on), and one that is totally bomb proof beginner safe......
It depends on bloodlines, training, ealy handling, how their mommas acted, and etc. Without knowing more about the breeding and individual temperaments of the parents, its pretty impossible to guess on the foal's temperament, other than to say the foal could be a blend of mom and dad's personalities, or could lean more toward one or the other, or could be completely its own unique self..... with the caveat that some of their attitude usually comes more from mom since she raises the foal.
