Could someone tell me exactly what I've got here?


My yearling filly's dam was a solid sorrel, no appy traits but with a very strong appy background. My filly's sire was a few spot leopard. The filly was born solid sorrel with striped hooves but no mottling. She is beginning to mottle around her eyes now.

Georgia as a baby.



Georgia today freshly clipped & some spots.

It appears she does have a tiny bit of mottling, but appears to be a silver dapple and I understand sometimes they can have some 'freckling' as well?? It does not appear that she has white sclera around her eyes, something that would also be required to be Appy. I dont see anything that yells Appy to me...

I am going to say Silver Bay as her color. A lot of the silver horses have striped hooves and weird coat spottings, even if they have no appy. I am saying silver bay because of the golden hue around her face.

Few spots are about 99% homozygous.... and just having characteristics are considered colored.

Do we know for SURE if he is a true few spot, or is he a varnish roan or a grayed out horse?? He has to be out of 2 Appy parents and has to also have a leopard parent or possibly grandparent.

Her Grandsire on her dams side is Carousel Fire Lance a chestnut app. Her Sire is Iles Harvest Moon which is a black app.

Do you have a picture of her sire?? I don't really see appy and the striped hooves mean nothing when you have a silver because silver often causes this. Your girl looks pretty freshly clipped which could cause those spots too. I don't see the mottling. She does still have time to appy out though.

It takes a leopard parent or grandparent to make a true few spot. Fire Lance was not a leopard- dont know about the other horse you named. Fire Lance is on my reference page and he is a red roan.
