    You have heard of Appaloosas right? Tiger horses are a breed... but they carry the same coat patterning that Appaloosas do... and Appaloosas are much mess rare. You mentioned a reservation... Indian reservation I assume. Reservations breeds lots of Appaloosas... in fact... usually ONLY Appaloosas. I have a friend with a registered Appaloosa mare who has a few mares in her pedigree who are simply named "reservation bred mare". If you horse is an App., which I FIRMLY believe he is... he is a "fewspot" App. That is a pattern... it also happens to be a pattern that is "homozygous", which means if he was bred, he would ALWAYS produce foals with a pattern. It also means he had to have two Appaloosa patterned parents... leanding credence to my argument. The color of his hair and skin, eyes, ears, etc... they all point to him being a fewspot. Here: take a look at this:

    Look familiar?

    Foundation bred means that the horse has been bred from very limited lines and trace back to only certain horses in the breed. It's very important to the future of the breed to maintain some of the characteristics the original horses had, and foundation horses assure that.

    OOOOOOHHHHH! I get it now! Well, I am pretty sure he isn't purebred. Could he have these color traits being a cross or mix? I really appreciate it!!! I would have just been stuck! So....the fact that he is Appy, wait! I thought Appys were only types not breeds. Wow, that's new lol.

    Yes, the Appaloosa patterns can be found in several breeds, and obviously in mixed breeds. But his particular patten must come from two patterned parents so they both had to have Appaloosa blood, which is expected since he came off a reservation. You seem convinced that he is mixed, why? In my opinion all evidence points to pure. He even LOOKS like a full blood foundation App.

    I've never had anyone say he's full Appaloosa. Not even someone off of the Reservation. Its sort of suprises me.....but I'm really glad you are helping!

    Well, bottom line is that no one can tell you if he is full blood or not without breeding records. Even the experts can't say because not all horses LOOK like what they really are. All I know is that he looks the part to me and that both of his parents must have had Appaloosa patterning. It just adds up. Do some googling about Apps and in particular, reservation bred Apps. I am sure you will start seeing it make sense.
