Hi Laura,

My mare doesn't show any other Appy trate...with the exception of her striped (very, very hard / tough feet). She does not show white of eye or mottled skin. Thanks for all the info, I have appreciated the replys...I had never heard of a Bend-or-spot before so already I'm learning from helpful people...My eyes and ears are always open for new info.

Those are called grease spots. Typically they're seen mostly on Pali's and Chestnuts, but can pop up on anything... has nothing to do with appy

Bend Or spots are named for the TB with the same name. That horse was the first horse recognized with a darker spot than his main body color.

Your QH-Appy cross mare could possibly foal a spotted/throw-back to your mare's Appy breeding. Not always happens though.

There is a Hall of Fame Appaloosa stallion who reportedly was the offspring of a solid colored QH dam and solid QH colored sire neither had any known Appaloosa genes in their pedigrees. For reference only, the Stallion was Colida.
