True, but I highly doubt it. She does not have any hoof striping or any other appy characteristics that I can see. I do not have an pictures of her body or the spots since they pop up in the winter and I left my barn early fall...but I do have a picture of her cute little face just so you can see who I'm talking about...

She's cute she almost look like she tried to have the badger face markings but its stopped at the bridge of her nose . Well its hard to say though I used to own a bay blanket appaloosa who had solid black feet so they don't always have striped feet. But I wonder why she only has white spots in the winter thats weird maybe it was just strange winter hair.

Hmm, what did you mean she had spots? did you mean like the other horse, or "spots" like we see here on her nose? I guess I am confused because I don't see any spots beside her whites, if they are just in winter then it could just be white ticking. If you meant the whites then that's not appy, but some Overo gene. But if she does have appy spots, she doesn't need to be an appy to have them.

She had random white spots like the other horse I was talking about, just not as many. Maybe 4 or 5 on her butt and a couple on her neck last winter, but this past summer they were gone... I'm guessing they are birdcatcher spots too because they appear and disappear and after reading about them they are said to do that. I posted a picture of the other horses face on the previous page if anyone missed it.

Thanks for all the help everyone, I learned something new!

I'd say birdcatcher. I worked at a place that had a Thoroughbred, definitely NO appy in her pedigree that looked just like the chestnut. Spots just the same over her body and ears. I did have someone once though who tried to tell me that the mare having spots like that was because of some mineral deficiency, but I don't know of that being the symptom of any deficiency.

They look almost exactly like the spots on the little mustang Galaxy someone adopted last year.

Yeah, those are not charactgeristic of Appy spots at all, and she has no other Appy characteristics - no Appy in the woodpile there. Just birdcatcher spots, but I don't recall seeing that many of them before...
