    You've got me mixed up. I think Meggs? Has the Trakhener. My mare is Swedish and a huge pain in the ass temperament, so throwing a good mind is number 1 in a stallion for me. Thus Knabstrupper.

    I am not good at the color genes. JB is fabulous on them. None of experts on this are reading this. Maybe pm them and ask?

    Miichelle, Altamont has Trakehner horses in her program.

    If your mare is homozygus, for what you want to produce, a solid or a patterned stallion is your best choice. With a patterned stallion, you still have a 25% chance of producing a homozygus foal.

    This search picks up a lot of good threads on this topic. The third thread down is particularly recommended.

    And I think they are renown for super, super ammie friendly temperaments. Great rideablility. That's my excuse for breeding one! I want an easy sofa with spots to ride as I advance in age!
    Coming in late here. Yes there are solid Knabstrupper stallions, the color is not a breed requirement. However I don't know of any here in the USA. There used to be one called Leofric the Dane and he was a solid bay, but he has since been gelded and is now showing in the jumpers!

    A Knabstrupper breeding stallion does have a pedigree requirement, which is 3 generations of approved breeding, as in either Knabstrupper, WB, TB or Arabian, so I'm afraid your mare (3/4 TB) could not have an approved son.

    Knabs are known for their good temperaments and easy going nature. Some of them jump really well and some jump just okay. If you PM me I cna make a few suggestions.

    If you are not worried about which registry you go with, there is frozen semen here from a stallion called Stavsdahl Lobi, who is a Leopard spot and is approved by RPSI. He himself was a great jumper, at one time he was ranked 14th in the Land Rover world rankings for 3 day horses. That was a long time ago, (he's in his 20s now). Lobi has had a few offspring here, but not many.

    Anyway if you want to know more PM me.

    Default One more that jumps well

    I completely forgot, there is of course Colorado Skrødstrup, who is a great jumper in his own right, plus his dam is Jeanette Skrødstrup who has had a number of good jumping sons incluing Fairbanks Skødstrup. So Colorado would be a good one to breed too.

    Hi Melyni,
    Somehow this kind of got off track and I haven't been online to comment. I'm not interested in keeping a stallion out of my mare, I'm only interested in the requirements for registering her offspring and I wanted to know if there were any solid colored Knabstrupper stallions. My mare is a few spot and I would prefer to breed her to a solid colored stallion.

    Thanks everyone for all of the replies!

    Boy, how did I miss this thread?

    Miichelle, if your mare is bred to a Knabstrupper stallion, you of course know that the foal cannot be registered with the ApHC.

    It could, however, be registered with the Appaloosa Sport Horse Registry (if they are still around - I haven't kept track of them).

    You could also get your mare inspected by the KNN or the RPSI and have the foal registered (albeit in the lowest books) of either of those registries. But it would be registered.

    No solid Knabstrupper stallions around the U.S. right now and don't really know of one anywhere at the moment, but like others have said, if you breed to one of the heterozygous leopard spotted stallions, you'd only have a 25% chance of getting another few spot. There are quite a few to choose from now for fresh semen and there are even more if you will use frozen. There is even semen left of the fabulous Apollon.

    If registration with ApHC is important to you, then look for a really nice jumping line TB that has been tested and approved by one of the WB registries. There are some lovely ones around.

    Yes, some of us are still here....Still breeding, showing and selling spotted horses. I have to admit I am terrible at marketing my horses. I would rather spend my time in the barn. I am currently rounding up info on babies from my horses so I can update my web site. If anyone knows of any, please pass on the info. Confettifarms.com, we are also on Facebook.

    I have to say - I have a granddaughter of Mellanie's Chocklate Confetti and I get ENDLESS compliments on her. Every single day someone stops me to say how "pretty" she is, or what a good looking horse, or a comment about her jump, or about her amazing personality.

    I board at a large barn - and people always come up to me - "Oh! you have that wonderful Appaloosa mare - the one who greets everyone with such a happy face"

    And she is built well, athletic. Does everything from jumping and dressage, to hard 15+ mile trail rides in steep hills and rocky conditions - barefoot to boot!

    I often get " I don't usually like Appaloosas - but she is REALLY nice!"

    Plus - I can't think of another horse I have received so many unsolicited offers to purchase!

    So yes, there are NICE appaloosas out there. If you want one for english pursuits, look into the Confetti or Wap lines.
