Hey, Hey & G'day...
I have a mare that is half appaloosa QH and half full QH. My mare is solid Chestnut (Deep Cherry Red but is darkening to Liver with dark dappling now that I have a rug on her). She does have a couple of dark spots on her flanks one is prominent when she is unruged. Does anyone out there know if the Solid colour with much darker occasional spots is seen in Appy's or is this an odd occurrence?
I would love to put her in foal, later on but worry if she would throw an Appaloosa, nothing against the Appaloosa, just not my preference.
The people I purchased her off never got her registered but mentioned to me that Freckles Gay Doc may be her sire, I am looking at getting a bloodtest done as it has been mentioned for me to do so, but am not sure how this will help me register my Mare.
Cheers to you all, & spare a thought for the people in QLD Australia , who have been devastated by freak floods all over the state, especially those in towns surrounding Toowoomba, human lives have been lost and many have lost stock including horses.
It is heartbreaking to watch.
