Re: Appaloosas

You might consider the fact that the horses brought over by the Spaniards
were of the Moorish or Barb descent! These horses included some with the
blanket and spots.

Fast forward to the Barbs and Spanish Mustangs being bred today with very
little outside influence and you will find the occasional blanket with

Bob Painter of Midvale Idaho has about 120 of the Barbs where in he can
trace blood lines for a minimum of nine generations. He has some blankets
with spots and can guarantee no quarter horse blood. They are tough horses
and not for the beginner or faint hearted though.

The Appy Registry will have nothing to do with then though, since they are
not of the QH build and do not look like what the Appy people want now. The
will run the ass of any appy around in the long run though.

So, if you want an Appy, realize you will have a hard time not getting a
colored QH when you buy one.
