Well I'll have to irritate you again, because I'm naive, I just don't believe that any horse can become anything.

Stewie the Moose,is unique, a one off, he has heart, substance I truly would love to promote him as something, but he doesn't have 'it' In his case, no breeding to back him up, nothing outstanding in his conformation, sure I can and will train him to be a useful member of society, but that is his limit, MAYBE. What I want for him is a dressage career, but who knows.

You answered yourself, If Moose doesnt have the right breeding, it is hard to find "IT". But Every horse is here for a purpose even if that purpose is just to love. Not all horses will be amazing jumpers or racers, but they all know how to love unconditionally. I don't feel you are naive if you are willing to learn more!! I learn things every day!!

Wow

Wow, this was an interesting thread to read. Perhaps the only problem I can see is a difference of opinion to breed preferences. Maybe poster should just have included the word "potential" in her right up. And no where did I see any reference to homozygous, yes in an appaloosa x appaloosa few spot leopard would lead us to believe homozygous, but honestly in a cross you have to question. With out a doubt she is a beautiful filly that does show a lot of POTENTIAL to be used as the owner has implied. For some to say she could not do those things because of her breeding is "ignorance" on their part. I have seen many different breeds do things that "they shouldn't". As a breeder and trainer I know the difference between Potential and Trained. I would hope that others on this forum would too. I look at this filly and see a very eye catching filly that could become an amazing eventer or whatever. I have long since said that there is a job for every horse but not every horse is for every job. But shame on the people that say there is no potential there on a filly that they have not seen in person. We all know that stuff happens all the time to change the Potential of young horses or even horses that are currently performing, lets keep that in mind...... If this filly is not a few spot leopard than what would you consider her? Just curious, I know what I would call her.....

Do you not see the complete and total contradiction in those two statements?

Also, your horse is not a fewspot, and is not homozygous, and I have no idea where in the world you pulled the made-up 80% color producing statistic from.

Well, OP, seems your claims went over like a fart in church -- if you want to b.s. Someone about the quality, value, etc of this horse it would be better to target an audience that is horse ignorant.
