solid appaloosa

Postby stardressage23 » Wed Feb 18, 2015 12:52 am

I have a seal brown appaloosa stallion. He has a few spots on his testicles. I don't know much about his bloodlines other than his sire was Canadian bred(I think his name was M&M). His dam is still around, but the owner wont give up the registered name. who knows what the deal is their. He has sired several foals most of them were spotted, two were the same color as him. But all his babies are bigger than he is. He looks bigger than he is standing at 15hh, his babies are all leg and stand between 15.2 and 16.2. They all have his easy going attitude about everything, perfect for training. I think he must have some thoroughbred in his bloodlines somewhere. Will a blood test confirm this? With him being a solid appy with a spot or two on his testicles is it possible to register him as an appy? Or a sport horse if he has thoroughbred? He has a great attitude and is calm around mares, geldings and other stallions even when being ridden or while out on walks. He will be going into training for eventing this summer. He will be 9 this summer. Ive never owned a stallion,but moose is one of the most laid back horses I've ever met! I have so many questions about stallions and breeding so any information is appreciated! Thank you!

You will find that any reputable Breed Registry will require "parentage verification" before registering a horse. That means that the horse's DNA matches the required patterns to be found as a product of his sire's and dam's DNA which has to be on file. With millions of variation possibilities, you are not going to be able to send your horse's DNA to the registry and say "find out who the sire and dam are". Statistically, the horse could be dead of old age before it's found! :)

You have another issue in that if there are no papers, then you are going to have a very hard time proving the line of ownership. Again, a reputable Breed Registry is going to require an authentic Bill of Sale to prove ownership, and without knowing the name, sire and dam of the horse, that is going to be difficult.

I'm afraid that you are probably going to have to live with the fact that - no matter what the breeding might be - you technically have a "grade horse"... :(
