Not going back to quote, but who ever said appies don't have blue eyes... They most certainly do. My family used to breed/raise appies and we had more then one that had blue eye(s).

Also just because a horse is long backed doesn't mean it is an appy. I have seen plenty of long backed horses of other breeds that are not appy.

FWIW OP, I don't see or not see appy in him. It is way to easy for grey to erase LP spots. The molting/seclera/striped hooves would still be there is he had those characteristics. Either way, I think you found a great horse regardless of breed and/or color.

These blue eyes would not have been caused by LP though.

I did not say that blue eyes were caused by LP. I was stating that they are appaloosa that do have blue eyes. To say that a horse isn't an appaloosa because of eye color is kind of asinine.

I'm not disagreeing with you. Of course appies can have blue eyes. I was just clarifying for the people that don't know, that they are not caused by the LP gene. Not at all implying that you didn't know that, in fact I was sure at the time of posting that you did know that

Alrighty.

I am pretty sure that in Appies that the blue eyes are caused mostly by splash (not going to say they are all caused by this).

Appys, I have found, can easily vary their coloring. One of the few Appys I knew was 17.2hh, and chestnut through and through. He had a star on his face and that was it. Genetic testing even proved he was PURE Appy. He's a freak of nature.

I would say so too. There are probably cases of Frame causing it in Appies, being stock bred, but I see splash as being far more common.

No.

Genetic testing proved he carried the LP gene. This does not make him an Appaloosa. Appaloosa is a breed, the spotting is a colour.

As far as I knew there wasn't a test for LP available yet? *confused*

Tymer - Were you meaning DNA tested, as in checking parentage?
