The Appaloosa - the horse destined to be different...
Appaloosas come in all shapes, sizes and colours. What's more,
Appaloosas may change as they get older, developing more white,
and producing coat patterns you wouldn't have dreamed of.
Some Appaloosas have no white at all, while some are almost
completely white. Others have a sprinkling of white throughout
their coats, and some have white blankets over their rumps,
with - or without - spots. One thing's for sure, you won't
find it hard to tell any two apart!
Make no mistake though; the Appaloosa is a breed, not a colour
or a coat pattern. Its characteristics go far beyond its colourful
appearance, although Appaloosa colour makes an Appaloosa most
easily recognisable. It is perfectly possible to breed together
2 highly coloured Appaloosas and have the resulting foal born
without a speck of white and for that plain coloured foal
in turn to later produce a coloured foal of its own. The pursuit
of both quality and colour is what keeps Appaloosa breeders
the world over interested - foaling time is just like Christmas! Read more...
