I have a question on the possible coloring of a 3 week old solid black filly out of a app mother and a few spot father. Can she spot out with age? People keep saying that a few spot always produces color is this true? If it helps any neither parent is black either.

Few Spots and snowcaps always produce appy CHARACTERISTICS (ie, mottling, sclera, striped hooves). It's not uncommon that appaloosas (especially fillies) color over time...and you might just find a nice blanket under that foal coat. Color is never a guarantee, even with a few spot. Keep in mind that a TRUE few spot is from two homozygous coated parents. (2 snowcaps, or 2 fewspots). It is possible for a solid appy and a snowcap appy to produce a coat that Looks like a few spot, but is not technically a true few spot, as it got the leopard gene from one parent, but not from the other, although it still carries the coat pattern. It's possible that the stallion is not a true few spot....and bred even to an appy mare, the foal can get (ll) genetics instead of (LL).

Here is a great site for genetics information on appaloosa studies. Also, keep in mind that it's very unusual in miniatures that any appaloosa is a purebred, since combinations are acceptable in the registry. (people breed pinto to appaloosa to solids, etc.)I'd check the stallions pedigree, and see what colors are in it, you might be surprised!
