    Tymer - Were you meaning DNA tested, as in checking parentage?
    I'm not sure, the horse's owner just said "We did the tests, he's a pure appy!"

    I wasn't sure if this applied to the thread or not, because I'm not the most educated in genetics. But I thought it might, so I decided to add it.

    I don't think he's an Appy. But he might be a QH or I thought I saw a little warmblood. But I don't think he's pure warblood if he is it's not much. I think he's has some QH in him. Is he a mixed breed?

    I never saw her get fired up or bothered. She is just curious and is defending the man. Jeez.

    He has a white face like an overo paint (you can see the outline of his facial markings)... maybe one warm day you can take a hose to him and try to find any pinto markings. Look for mottling. Is his manly-part mottled? I remember we had a little palomino gelding that was extremely light-colored. He had a wide blaze and looked solid everywhere. We just figured he was a mutt, but when we hosed him down we found spots and mottling on his skin. He was built a lot like your horse, just smaller. He certainly didn't show any "characteristics" of an appy, but he definitely had spots. We still called him a mutt though, haha.

    I'm not guessing, just wanted to say whatever he is, he's a real cutie and you're lucky, and don't dwell on what he is, just who he is.

    Very good point!

    This is my horse Missy who is a registered appaloosa. She is classified as a non-charactoristic appaloosa. No sclera, no stripped hoves, no mottled skin and not a spot on her but both parents are leopard appys.

    ^ Wow. What a presence. She's beautiful.

    Thanks :) Appaloosas can have brown, blue or hazel eyes. A lot of blue eyes in the Mighty Bright line. You can really see my mares dapples in the summer.

    I'd like to add that he is a beautiful horse no matter what breed he is. He very well could be pure appy. There are grey and dapple grey appys and when I first opened your post, the first thing I thought was appaloosa. Good luck to you and Wildfire.
