OP, why don't you have actual sale photos of your horse?
Pictures where you can see the horse's conformation, pictures of the horse's movements, etc. can be very helpful when selling a horse.

Again, WOW

You know I just joined this forum today..... This thread has turned me off of it for sure.... "Farts in Church", wow are you people really that uneducated. OP has done nothing wrong and you all act like she is a thief. All she is doing is showing how much she loves her horse. "Grade", last time I checked the AWBA and the CSHA were infact registry and a "Grade" horse is one simply without registry. Good Lord people, do you really have nothing else to do with you lives. If you do not like the filly simply pass it by, but going at someone like this only makes you all the idiots. Oh and as for the "rare", how many App/Clyde crosses have you seen? That is what makes it "rare". Look the definition up.
Rare/re(ə)r/Adjective
1. (of an event, situation, or condition) Not occurring very often.
2. (of a thing) Not found in large numbers and consequently of interest or value

Night All........

I'm not saying that the filly is rare or trying to be mean...but the photo that I see... isn't that a snowcap...? Or am I wrong? I thought few spots were white along the neck.

Few spot

Snowcap

But then again I only see the one photo and I'm definitely not an expert on the matter.

I have seen no one act like she is a thief. OP posted on a public forum, so yes, of course she is at the mercy of opinionated horse people. Asking how the seller knows that the horse will be an eventer is a legitimate concern, as is the genetic status (homo, hetero, etc.) of the horse in question.

Welcome to the forum, but don't be so sensitive, no one meant any harm!

Can't be a true snowcap SUJ. To be a snowcap the horse has to get the appy genes from both sides as being a snowcap makes them homozygous for color.

Snowcap/fewspot are basically the same thing. One just has more color/white than they other. They are both homozygous and will produce color.

The point being made is that the horse is not a few spot (or a snowcap) then. Period.
This seller is telling us we are clueless about genetics and such but she is missing the mark by using terms that are not accurate.


A seller (any seller) making claims and using words like rare tend to turn off real buyers. Fluff like that does drag in the 'oh wow, purty horzeees' type buyer. It make the real serious buyers flip to the next ad.
Rare does not mean it is better. It is rare that my dogs stool is almost liquid. Usually it is a nice easy to pick up consistency. Should I consider those gooey piles something special, just because they are rare?

Just because lots of people do not breed their appy mare to a clydsdale does not make it special rare.

Being registered with a registry that is not a breed registry does not mean the horse is still not a grade horse. Mixed breed = grade.

My dog has papers with the UKC (so we could do obedience). So she is registered with a pretty well known registry. She is still a mutt.

I have to seriously question your integrity and knowledge as a "trainer" of eventing Warmbloods if you believe that Clydesdale bone is an asset in eventing.

I am not talking about novice levels here, if your claim is that your filly can do the "green as grass" eventing levels, then you are correct - ANY horse can do those levels, even if he's the pigeonest toed cow hocked knock kneed jug headed colt of the group.

If you're claiming this filly can do advanced levels, and that somehow both Clydesdales and Apploosa's are destroying the competition at ADVANCED levels, then I call your bluff and your astounding ignorance - moreso that you would have the audacity to call ME ignorant, as if somehow I wasn't aware that Appaloosa's are the new Olympic eventers.

Typically when someone touts a youngster as a prospect, it's because they will excell in it. Perhaps I should breed my Arabian to a Percheron and tell people it's a barrel racing prospect? I mean, my Arab has won ribbons in barrel racing and a girl I know barrel raced her Percheron bareback at a show 2 years ago, so they MUST be barrel racer producing parents...right?

What color is the non-appaloosa parent? As someone with a lot of experience with grey Appaloosas, I would venture a guess and say she looks grey to me.
