    Well DANG appy or not! I'd gladly take him off yours hands. Idc if you tried to sell him to me as a percheron/ gypsy cross! Lol your still getting the same horse all the same. And by his looks and what seems to be his personality he looks fantastic!

    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?
