A lot of breeders have been trying to "breed out" the rat tail gene. They want horses with long, thick manes and tails like QHs have. My mare is registered as an appy even though her sire is QH. But she has all four required characteristics plus the rat tail gene. :-)

oh! I thought you meant something else! And I thought most of them had rat tails.

Crazy people don't really loose their mind, it just becomes something more entertaining!

Truth is a mass appeal to something.

Appaloosa characteristics are:

Mottled skin
striped hooves
white sclera around eye (bug eye look LOL)
coat pattern - the blanket or leopard coat

One other characteristic that is true appy but not considered for registry are the old time "rat tail" apps. It is a recessive gene where the horse can not grow a long mane, tail or forlock. My mare has the recessive gene so she looks like I shave her mane and forlock off and her tail has very little hair growing off it.

I think its Prezwalki, but I could be wrong. I know its Prez. And I'm almost positive they're a pony.

Its a draft. Their height for a horse is over 14h not 14.3h. I always thought it was funny that people called the miniatures, horses because while people like to claim the are just horses bred down how they did it most times was with Shetlands. And even if they did just use horses they often in a couple of generations would be bred to a Shetland. Also, I think the height is the way they determine it, so if you have a Shetland that is under it is then called a miniature, meaning no horse at all.

To keep the game moving I wait a couple of days before answering your question to give others time to answer it.

Crud - I don't think I am going to spell this right, but when it's a Przwalski horse?

Can you name three of the four characteristics that make an Appaloosa registerable?

After I tell you you're right, which you are; and just as a bonus what is the other time?

When it is a mini horse.

Now, do I post the next question right away or after you tell me if I am right or not?

Alright this is how it works, if you get the question right you make up the next question. See how many you can get!

Here is to start you off:

What is the other time a equine is a horse, not a pony, other then when he is over 14.3hds?

(If you ask I might even give you a hint.)
