HELP! I think my horse is an Appy???

Ok so here's what I know,

I got this mare from a friend of a friend, who inturn got her from an auction. We have all been told that she is a quarter horse as she has no papers. She is a great horse and it really won't matter either way, but I'm starting to think she's an appaloosa and not the quarter horse everyone thought.

I have been doing some looking up every since her first bath. She is solid with a blaze and one stocking and has no other spots anywhere. But when I bathe her, her skin colour is a mix of black and white. Kind of like the moltten look of appys. Her hooves also have vertical striping. She has no white around her eyes or nose though that looks appy.

So hopefully the pics work and would love to hear what everyone thinks!









Just incase here's a link to the webpage

Lol, your horse is not an appaloosa, she just has dapples, which means she is in good shape!

LOL I know the dapples aren't making her an appy. She would*be a solid appy, I was just wondering about the mollted skin colour and striped hooves.

Having stripes on a white leg is common no matter what the breed. She doesn't have any other appaloosa characteristics. IMPO she is not an appy.

palominos frequently have that pink and "mottled" skin ... I believe it is a result of the dilute gene ...

She's a pretty girl!

Thanks! I didn't know that palominos can get the mollted skin
She has striped hooves all the way around not just the one with the white leg.
