Appy Question.
This is Pagan:- IMAGE(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v131/rabbitsfizz/Farley%202010/Farley07052010020.jpg) IMAGE(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v131/rabbitsfizz/Farley%202010/Farley07052010021.jpg) What you see is the only white on this mare. No sclera. No striped hooves. Nada. Not even looking with a speculum...... She is by Rabbit o/o an Appy mare that was by Rabbit o/o and Appy mare....I know her pedigree for at least five generations, it is all Appy on the dams side. So, I have a solid...no problemo. Until two years ago she threw a pinto colt by Carlos that is now, definitely, Pintaloosa. This is Disney:- IMAGE(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v131/rabbitsfizz/tn_IMG_0283.jpg) Up on the top of his rump, in the chestnut, last year he started "roaning", this year the "roan" (which I put down to Sabino) has dark, even spots in it, and is spreading across the chestnut of his rump. I'm stumped. Suggestions?? :sign

Re: Appy Question.

Got a friend who has one like that and there's me saying - no way it can produce LP foals...but it does !

Re: Appy Question.

Yeah, uhm, remember my Ms Pearl??? LOL Any chance of a pix of her feet? Are they solid solid black as night black? or are they sort of slatey grey?

Black is showing itself to be a pretty good supressor of Lp expression, the "hidden" appies I've come across are at least black-based, most are actually black.

Hard to see her eyes for her hair-do, but then to see Ms Pearl's sclera you have to be at the right angle to her eyeball (and with her looking forward...not an easy pose to get to).

It's only this past season that she started showing proper appaloosa striping on her feet, and she's 18.

Re: Appy Question.

Don't mini's make their own rules as they go along? Changing them at whim or wind direction?

Re: Appy Question.

Very true Heidi, but they do seem to stick to Appy rules, as we know them.
Trouble is the Appy rules keep changing with the wind :rofl

OK, Diane, no her feet are black, I shall compare them with one of my black horses feet tomorrow, but when I showed her I used to put black varnish on them and they looked the same only shiny (and clean).
Her colt (Disney) was born with one "wild" eye, but she does not even have this, she has no more than the usual amount of white and can only show that when she is alarmed (which is often as she is neurotic).
I agree with Black as a suppressor, not just of Appy, either.
Red males seem to express all patterns best, and Disney is Red base!
