When Blue was born, he was something else, dark bay with white spots on his hips and a white tail
But as he got older, he started getting whiter (yearling)
By the time he was a 2 year old he was sort of black with a dusting of white (pictured beside his dam she's on the left he's on the right)
And by the time he was five he white (gray) with a few black and brown spots on his hips, essentially inside out of what he was. (photo taken at 26 yrs)
We re-bred the mare to another stallion, Copper Talks, who always threw spotted foals
Sonny was born when Blue was 2, and he looked nearly identical to baby Blue, except he had no white spots and his tail was black. We thought he might turn inside out too, but he never changed. (photos taken at 24).
They are both registered as appaloosas. Sonny's "official" breeding is 1/2 appy, 1/4 TB and 1/4 QH. Blue is 3/4 appaloosa 1/4 Thoroughbred.
