Appy? Really?
So my best friend and business partner took me to introduce the newest horse she will be training and I will be standing. The stallion's name is Arete (like earring). And as I was looking at him, we came across one of his mares bred to him. She is supposedly registered Appy but I see nothing Appy about her. I see Sabino and maybe something else. Figured I'd post the pictures and let you guys take a gander as well.

Anything you'd like to contribute? Thanks guys!

Looks like a horse going grey and he does not appear to have any Appy characteristics from what I can see. You are right I would suspect sabino for her markings. Have you checked the genital area as well for spotting just in case?

The sorrel right? A horse can be ApHC and be non-characteristic. They have a separate registry category for them.

Nice horses. The mare could be Appy, non-characteristic like admin said.

Yea, I've seen solid bred apps. But my questioning was because supposedly, she was registered as having appy characteristics.

Her papers are buried somewhere. I asked him to pull them up. It'd be interesting to see what they say.

Re: Appy? Really?

Surely they didn't call her characteristic based on the stifle spot???

Yea, the stallion is an Andalusian. I was just inquiring about the mare. :)

I have a feeling it is either from that or the black Bend-Or type spots on her side.

Swinghorse, you can PM me the name, and I can look her up, if you don't want to put her registered name on the forum.
