I just acquired my first Mini mare! She is a black leopard appaloosa. Last year she had a black leopard filly with the Sire being a few spot leopard. I've read that few spot leopards are homozygous. Does this mean, if I always bred her to a "few spot" leopard, she would always have a leopard baby?
This is my first appy and I don't know much about how their coloring and patterns are achieved!

Thank you!!

I don't know much about appaloosas, but I've read that few spots are 100% colour producers. Appaloosa over solid gives 50% chance to either solid or appaloosa equally. Since your mare is an appaloosa, you should get 100% appaloosa, but I have no idea of what their patterns will likely be.

Here are a few articles that are good.

Momma here is a homozygous LP roan. Her son is heterozygous. Daddy was not an appaloosa.

The answer to your question...I think...is that if you breed her to a fewspot, yes you may get spots (heterozygous)...but you also may get a snowcap or a fewspot. It is 50%/50%...with the white patterning variable as in the first article.
