Appy Manes (and tails)
So I have noticed that many Appaloosas do not have the best manes and tails. I was at moms yesterday and her Appy mare Satin has a very thick very long mane and a nice tail... She is even foundation bred and still somehow got the hair!

I will post hers after Christmas, but, for now, lets see those Appaloosa manes and tails, the wimpy and the long!

Also what size are your Appys? Satin is HUGE, @least 16hh and all legs! I always thought Sppys were smaller horses but she proved me wrong!

this is our Pregnant Appaloosa Snowflake! she has a pretty thick tail. but a wimpy mane lol

Lol, she has about as many spots as Satin, she is a leopard, but she only has maybe 20 spots on her entire body!

are you sure she is a leopard? Snowflake is a Roaned out Blanket appaloose. as she is 14-17 years old. so she used to have a blanket but has pretty much roaned completely out. thats why she has the coloring from her knees down and color on her muzzle mane and tail:D

Danni...I had him for about 4 mos this year. Varnish roan, with lots of spots! haha

She is a leopard... registered so. She looks solid white right now, you can't see her spots 'cause of her long white hair. I will get pics, though I would hate to make everyone jealous cause of her long flowing locks! HEHE

Here is my appy mare, Lilly. She is for sale...

She is 6 years old and maybe about 15 hands, and really stocky. She moves more like an english horse though so hopefully she will find a home with somebody who does that.
She's got a really thick tail, and a longer mane, but it is really thin.

This was my appaloosa mare, Savhanna, who I regretfully don't own anymore.

Her mane was just growing back with the help of MTG, and boy was it one THICK mohawk!

I'm actually going to contact her current owner and tell her if she decides to sell her, I'd be happy to buy her back.

Our POA/Appy actually has plenty of hair although his mane is sort of sparse right now due to playing with our other geldings:

He has enough to braid nicely.

>>>> She is a leopard... registered so.

Where is she registered? Reason I ask is that ApHC doesn't use the terms leopard or blanket, just descriptive language about where the pattern is-- like a B/W eopard would get called "black- white with spots over entire body" or if it had some darker trim, "blue roan- white with spots over body and hips", and a B/W horse with a spotted blanket would be "black- white with spots over loin and hips"-- and etc.
What registry uses the term "leopard"?
