Lots of horses have mottled skin around their genital areas without having any appy blood. My gray gelding, who is most definitely not carrying any sort of LP gene (Appaloosa gene) has mottled skin between his legs and under his tail.
Also, white sclera, by itself, doesn't prove much either. There are lots of full blood QHs out there that have white sclera on one or both eyes. Some of the pinto genes will cause a horse to have white sclera even if they don't have any excessive white markings.
Unless she had some obvious mottling on her face or under her tail, I would say that the mottling on her teats is not an expression of LP.
Of course, the only way to tell for sure if she carried LP would be to test her.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
