    Default Check Out This Beautiful Filly (Not For Sale)

    This filly belongs to one of my clients. She is a yearling German warmblood. Isn't she beautiful...if color is your thing?

    Well, her color is very neat looking. But conformationally she is not really appealing to me.

    As the saying goes - if you can't say something nice, don't say it.

    Very interesting pattern on her. What show is Warrenton? I also think Centerlines comment is not out of line, just her/his opinion.

    Well, there are some spotted warmbloods out there, so I wouldn't assume she doesn't have warmblood breeding. We also don't know her age - she may not be fully mature yet. She looks to be a nice mover and she'll turn heads, that's for sure!

    If I had to guess age, I would say she is two years old.

    If she is a WB I'm assuming she is a Knabstrupper. She's very gangly right now, but cute. It's hard to say anything about a horse at this age, at that angle, in just one movement shot. I've seen some very goofy looking yearlings-3 year olds that turned out gorgeous.

    Do you know who her sire is? Did she come from Gestuet Falkenhorst?

    She looks like a North American Appaloosa (that is roaning) to me!

    The Knabstrupper has all the same patterns that the Appaloosa has (leopards, blankets, snow caps, roans, few spots, etc.). Check out the 2007 foals page at Gestuet Falkenhorst. http://www.gestuet-falkenhorst.de/gffoals2007.html It is believed that the Knabstrupper and the Appaloosa share common ancestors. And, there was the occasional spotted horse like this in the Spanish Riding School at one time (now all Lipizzaners).

    I do not think she looks like a stock-type Appaloosa at all.

    I agree... looks much like a baby.

    Im sure she is a Knabstrupper if the OP said WB.

    I know a dutch lady who has a stallion in Holland, he is three. He is entirely leopard and is apparently Quickstar x Voltaire. Can this color actually happen in Dutch (as in KWPN) horses? This woman doesn't crossbreed ect. The horse LOOKED like a nice Dutch horse but with leopard pattern on coat.

    I'm the owner, and she is by Silvio II - Oldenburg stallion standing in Middleburg. Her dam is a few spot reg. Appy mare, and I know very little about her breeding.

    Here are a few more pictures from when she was around 9 months old:

    No, that's not possible. Has the horse been DNA tested, either for appaloosa patterns or if his breeding matches what they say it is? I would guess someone screwed up the semen or something. Do you have photos of this horse? Are you sure it's leopard spotting and not extensive birdcatcher markings?

    Dazed,
    I am not sure if he has been tested or anything. She just sent me an email with the picture. It looks like a white horse with black dots all over?? She isn't into crossbreeding and only ever uses frozen semen from KWPN stallions here but I am not entirely sure. Maybe it was a screwup?

    I think she is very cute and looks great- especially for a yearling! I especially liked one of the canter pictures, but it looks like the OP removed that picture. Good luck with her!
