Aw, so cute even if he doesn't have spots. I know almost nothing about appaloosa colouring. Is there a chance he could roan out at all?

Congrats on your baby!

nope no chance. he will stay bay like his dam. basically non characteristic horses are carriers for the LP gene but dont show it themselves. they an produce spots but dont show them :)

Ah, makes sense.

Nonetheless, I'm sure he will be a stunner. Those are some long legs!

the big guy is standing and nursing.. and HOLY CRAP is he big. His leg joints are taller than mommas (mom stands about 15.1)

Wow! Look at them legs!! Solid black-- still an awesome color! ;) ..or bay.. still awesome.. solid horses with no white are very flashy to me.


What color was the stud?
