Can I hijack a tad bit?
Okay, so you guys all seem to know the Lp and Appy genes well. Esp. Compared to my next to nothing knowledge. :)
So my mare is 1/2 appy, 1/2 quarter horse. Her mom was a cremello (*I think, cremello, or perlino, but 99% sure cremello, I can find her stuff and check). Her dad was a rather loud leopard Appy, I was told.
She is a buttermilk buckskin, frosted mane and tail. But she has ONE spot. On her neck... But it is black, like her mane and tail. What causes that? Is that just a standard appy spot? And if it is, why only one? It just seems odd to me that her spot is black, my limited knowledge wants it to be a different color. :) (to add, she does have one sock, with some ermine spots/not fully white at the hoof, but I didn't think that was relevant).
Okay that is all, it is something that I have always wanted to find the answer to, since I got her. :)
