Re: [RC] [Guest] Arab/Appy crosses - Karen Sullivan




Deb Ambrose mkkgs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
My Arab/Appy Lippy comes from TnB Spots in Oxford, Ohio.  His breeder,
Terry Kaufman, has his full sister, 3/4 Arab (alas no spots yet), who is
4,
I think, and several younger 1/2 Arabs with color.  Her site is on the
Appaloosa Web Ring.

I have always liked appys and  have had two great Arab/appy crosses; always
sort of looking for a tall cross, however what a vet told me has made me
possibly
reconsider.

I sold an exceptional Arab appy to a friend, becase the mare was just too
small for me.
I never have yet found another horse of any breed that was as smooth and
surefooted as
that mare. Anyway, she developed a tumor over her eye, that had to be
removed as it
would have put pressure on the eye ball. The biopsy showed it was cancerous
(my friend
had it removed and treated and it never reoccured).  Anyway, the vet';s
comment to me was that
he had seen a lot of skin tumors and cancers on appys...and would probably
not buy one for
that reason.  I am wondering if anyone else has had problems with this....
