    Yep, there are some of us left!

    There are still a handful of breeders who are breeding quality purebred Appaloosas which can excel in the various sport disciplines but they are few and far between. Always have been though :) ...

    Oh goodness, just discovered this horse is the one I sent you a photo of Georgeanne! The one I said looks exactly the same colour as my filly. Small world, and yep, that's exactly her colour. ...

    I couldn't access your link, but googled Wrapatou, and found this : https://www.facebook.com/MountainVillageFarm Is this whom you're referring to? If so, he is as close as damnit to my dark...

    Just checked the test results, and no, dun was not tested for as the testing was done through AG and not UCLA Davis. That will be rectified shortly and my belief is the result will be Dd.

    Not your common, typical grulla no. More what they call Lobo Dun, or dark grulla. Dun is not a TB colour, so having produced duns out of TB mares, it would seem in all likelihood he is dun. It's...

    You can, if you view the foal pages. Quite a few are there - both out of Appaloosa and non-Appaloosa mares.

    I can assure you that is a scam. Just had a warning here about online classifieds consisting of as high as 40% being scams. You get to spot them after a while, but not before people have fallen for...

    Irritatingly, in Appaloosas, that is not necessarily going to be of help if they have a large blanket or are a snowcap or fewspot :) Unless by some luck some of the dorsal stripe is visible...

    Quite a few out of purebred TB mares.

    All around sportability - JG Waps are the way to go :)

    Looking at your mare, OP, my first choice of an Appaloosa Sport Horse sire would be Wap's Rolls Royce. He throws the huge hind end, gorgeous head and thick. long mane and tail.

    I bought one of...

    I'm interested to know, breeding more fillies than colts I don't have much / any experience of this, I have heard cautions about knocking them down to geld. Most people here geld them standing. Is...

    She's a very nice filly, but def needs some more meat on her bones :) You should be able to feel the ribs if you press gently on the sides, but certainly not see them. There's a definite...

    Oh dear me <wiping tears of laughter away> ~ that makes a refreshing change from those of us who speak the Queen's English joking about American English. My English is just fine, what do you think...

    Please don't feel insulted, I love Arabs and their way of moving :)
    This misunderstanding is precisely what I wanted to avoid. I wanted to keep it specifically to the conventional ''sport horse''...

    Oh dear, what I thought was a 'simple' question turned out not to be so simple.

    Thanks mbm, the Arab tail carriage is exactly what I was referring to and I agree 100% with your comments.

    No, you obviously do not understand at all what I'm saying, alibi 18 :) Nevermind.

    What I mean by ''bad movement'' is a horse cantering with the tail over the back. We've all seen those photos of horses cantering or trotting which have their tails stright up in the air or over...

    It pains me to read that so many people think this is typical of an Appaloosa. It pains me even more to admit they are for the most part right. Indiscriminate breeding for colour has been the...

    The least stressful way is to start when they're a couple of weeks old with regular grooming. Use a soft gel rubber brush and just get them used to the feel of something all over their body. ...

    I agree, it's far easier to update FB than a website, though the website is also important as it allows a more personal portrayal of your stud farm / product.

    The other point is, if a PAGE likes...
