    I have had a few people PM about breeding appaloosa mares and how you can guarantee colour. Well any horse can throw colour however rule of thumb is solids with a few spot guarantee loud colouring usually, there are always exception. My stallion is a leopard, so if I breed him with a few spot or a solid usually we get nice colour but if bred to another leopard usually we get a solid. Anything can happen because it also depends on the pedigree and what is furthur back in the bloodlines. Jokers mom was a solid chestnut[Amber's Flame] and his father was a few spot {Silver Chinook} so he came out a leopard. The Silver Joker. I try to estamate to the best of my ability but there is no guarantee in the end.

    A good place to look about color genetics is on the Appy webpage I havn't been thare in a long time it has been over 10 years since I owned an Appaloosa (had them for seven years then got into TWH's) but they used to have a great chart for Appaloosa breeders to try to estimate how their foals would turn out

    Yuckaduck- by chace what are your Joker stallions lines I used to have some Joker bred Appys

    mom side was Amber's Flame out of Y's Wapita's Superson

    dad was Silver Chinook which the only Joker back there is Joker's Pine Bar

    I think he got Silver from daddy and Joker because he always makes everyone laugh, he is a real clown.


    We have figured out exactly what we will get with whom we breed. Trial and error at first but no matter what colour he has outstanding foals. They come out with his size [16hh] and his superb temperment.

    Jokers Pine Bar I had to fillys that had him in their lines they were great horses and if I can find a pic of them I will post it

    That is good size for an Appy and temperment? that is good too considering that most Appaloosas are the most stubborn things LOL:)

    His mom and dad were both very stubborn and I know Superson was a major pain in the butt but he is outstanding which I love and he passes it back to all the foals so far. Even the little Arabian mare's foal was pretty settled. I too will try to get a picture posted of Joker for you. Thanks.

    ok I got someone else who is going to post them tomorrow but the pictures are rather blurry. I can't help it because my camera is not working properly but it is better than nothing. Will get better when I get camera fixed or replaced.

    Mine should turn up today, I'm computer illeterate so I don't know how to do it but someone else is. There are four and they are big so it may take awhile. I'll be as excited as you because the pictures were real fuzzy so I kinda wonder how they will look once posted.
