Breeding tested APHA's, result a freak?

Is it possible for Dam and Sire that have been genetically tested as APHA to produce what looks like a few spot appaloosa?

The only DNA testing relative to the APHA is for parental verification. Is that what you are referring to?

Do you mean two registered APHA horses to produce what looks like an Appaloose? Maybe I guess. I know some years ago, QH/TB/Appalooses were interbred often.

Do you have picture?? I have seen occasional markings on paints that have appy appearance to their patterning usually can pick out the paint traits over appy ones. horse may look appy like in color but possess no other characteristics like mottling etc

It could just be the way the white pattern is expressing that makes the foal look like a few spot Appaloosa. Have the parents been tested to see what white patterns they carry? Or better yet, do you have pics of all three?

Well, two rgistered QHs have been bred to produce an Appy spotted foal before, so maybe... I'm not that familiar with the LP and PATN genetics.

If this did happen, the resulting foal would be denied registry. Appy patterns are not allowed in APHA, even if parent identification is verified.

Sorry, I couldn't find this thread again. I don't know a thing about APHA guidelines. Both parents are registered- but the offspring can't be registered, is what I understand. I'm buying the gelding regardless. I just found it fascinating that he is out of paints. I don't buy for papers anyway. Love his colors.... Do you guys think he will lose the dark areas on his legs and roan out completely?
