  2. Horse Breeds
    We rescued Finnigan this past spring. When we went to get him, seeing him for the first time, I realized he's also part Arabian besides being Appaloosa. Is this Blanket or Snowflake and would he be considered Varnish? I was wondering if his color will change and what it might change to? I have...
  3. Horse Colors and Genetics
    This is Ekko, she's ten months old. I apologize for her scruffy looking coat, it's muddy and shedding season. Ekko's dam is a brown roan percheronxsomething. Her sire is a leopard appy. Ekko was born a grulla/silvery colour. She shed out that coat quite quickly and appeared brown with a lighter...

  8. Horse Breeds
    I recently moved and have been looking for a horse when I stumbled upon an appaloosa I really liked. I've ridden a few appaloosas but never really knew much about the breed. I've done some research but haven't found much that I found to be really helpful. So if anyone knows anything like if...

    Do you think my appy will change his color? If so what color do you think he will change into and when? He is 2 1/2 and does have a random white dot on his upper right side of his neck and alot of whiteish grey that is on the top of his back.

    Hey everyone, I am starting showing with a new horse, and I am wondering what the judges look for in the ring (whether its on the rail, in a pattern, in a reining class, and so on) for appaloosas (since that is her breed.) Maybe things about her gait, her mane, and i don't know. And by the way...
