Well.. I had a negihbor that used to raise appys, his solid black colt by the time it was six months was a dazzling white with huge black polka dots all over its little body , some were the peacock spots and he was registered as a Leopard and stood as stud as Leopard for many years, after an excellant show career with many grand championships.

Looks like a grulla, I could be wrong. My neighbors had a filly last year born a buckskin paint, then she'd the buckskin, started to look grulla, then she'd out and was a seal brown! Crazy how much they change!

ApHC does not register horses as leopards...
NdAppy and Chiilaa like this.

I didn't know that Face. So, technically, what would a leopard be registered as?

Guide to Identifying an Appaloosa

Quote:
Blanket - refers to a horse which has a solid white area normally over, but not limited to, the hip area with a contrasting base color.
Spots - refers to a horse which has white or dark spots over all or a portion of its body.
Blanket With Spots - refers to a horse with a white blanket which has dark spots within the white. The spots are usually the same color as the horse's base color.
Roan - A horse exhibiting the Appaloosa roan pattern develops a lighter colored area on the forehead, jowls and frontal bones of the face, over the back, loin and hips. Darker areas may appear along the frontal bones of the face as well and also on the legs, stifle, above the eye, point of the hip and behind the elbow. Without an apparent Appaloosa blanket or spots, a horse with only the above-listed characteristics will also need mottled skin and one other characteristic to qualify for regular registration.
Roan Blanket - refers to a horse having the roan pattern consisting of a mixture of light and dark hairs, over a portion of the body. The blanket normally occurs over, but is not limited to, the hip area.
Roan Blanket With Spots - refers to a horse with a roan blanket which has white and/or dark spots within the roan area.
Solid - refers to a horse which has a base color as is described above pages but no contrasting color in the form of an Appaloosa coat pattern. This horse will need mottled skin and one other characteristic to receive regular papers.
I would guess they are registered as blanket with spots.

Unless something has changed very recently that I don't know about, they are registered as Bay Roans, Blue Roans, or Red Roans. To illustrate, if you click on that link NDAppy provided and then click on one of the bay roans - I foget which one, you will see a leopard come up...


ETA - it's been a few years since I registered a leopard...if there have been any recent changes, Ghostwind should know as she has a crop of leopard foals...

Her fewspot is listed as color .. "white" .. description "few spots on head bla bla bla"

One of her leopards is listed as color .. "white" .. description "chestnut spots all over body ... bla bla bla ..."

That's the ApHC for you...they really need to change their system. For one thing, it would differentiate between a true leopard and one that colors out...
