We just purchased a new colt yesterday, He is 8 days old... Were not quite sure if he is appy or not, He is definately pinto.... He has a little mottling on his butt..... He has broken up black spots on his side and lower on his belly, several small black (single) spots spread out on his back leg between the hock and tail and a couple on his butt near his tail head.... He has a couple small spots on his chest with big rings of black skin around them... and a few areas that look like just a couple of black hairs here and there you cant see in pictures that look like they may grow in with time.... Im no appy expert so I need some help figureing out what he really is....

The Baby is a Orion Light Grandson and also a NFC Manipulator Grandson....

Sire is a Leopard Appaloosa and there is no mistake about him, he has every appy characteristic there is, mottled Muzzle, Eyes, Butt, and his parts along with lots of spots.....

Here are a couple pictures...

I'm sure others with more appy knowledge will chime in but to me he does not look to have any appy traits, at least not currently.

He's very cute, but to me he has no spotted characterisitcs. I would at least expect to see striped hooves,white scelera (sp), or mottled skin.

Doesn't he look like his mum though bless.

He's beautiful! He looks like a Hairicane colt - is he? I do see the molting on his rump, so I's say give him some time and you'll have a pintoloosa(sp?)

The black spots you see now, I would think are homozygous spots or possibly just other pinto markings. My colt has some like them and they look like flies or dripped hoof black at the shows

If the tiny black spots on his rump is what you're referring to as "mottling", it is NOT.. Appy mottling is NOT black spots like that.. From these pics you'd only be able to tell if he has mottling around his mouth and eyes, which he does not appear to.. Mottling will be around his anus, sheath, mouth and eyes.. Mottling on a pintaloosa can take a while to come in, our jet black colt last year (sired by a near leopard and out of a black pinto mare) didn't get mottling until he was at least a month and a half old. The tiny black spots on him could be from appaloosa or could be pinto "ink spots", time will tell.. He sure is a cutie, breeders don't happen to have one in filly do they?

(my favorite!)

I don't see any appy at all either, just a cute, colorful pinto!

I love that pic of he and his mom walking!

Congrats on your new boy!

His spots are probably from his pinto heritage. It looks like his mother has very similar markings on her side as well. Because he is mostly white, and his sire is an appaloosa it is possible for appaloosa to be hiding in there. If so, it may show up as roaning on his face.

He is a beautiful colt!!

Ok, Let me clairify, the mottling is on the anus..

The anus does have some appy mottling, not the pinto type mottling that ive seen before,he has White skin with some black spots, kinda looks like you took a sharpie and puts some dots on him, Not the pinto kind that ive seen where you have mostly black skin with a few white areas... I know I have a stallion that is a Black and White w/ Sabino all over him, his Anus was solid black when he was born, He now is loaded on his anus with the pinto type mottling that grew in over time.....

The little black spots on his rump are about the size of a pencil eraser right now and are difficult to see in the pictures.. He has a few more like this up near his hips and next to his tail head....

Aw, what a cutie he is, look at that face!!
default_wub.png


If he has mottling under his tail, then I would suspect he will end up with appy spots to go along with the pinto ones he's showing now. It's hard to say with appaloosas, which is one reason I'm so fascinated with them!

I'd love to see more pics of your little guy as he matures, and congratulations!!
