Hi all! Just wanted to post some updated (5 week) pictures of Levi. I continue to be amazed at the almost constant color and pattern changes. While he is basically a carbon copy of his appy sire, there are some black areas (assuming from mom) becoming more prominent by the day. Those of you have (or have had) appaloosas might be able to give opinion here. Do you think the black around his eyes and mouth will continue to spread? I haven't found any new patches of black anywhere else on his body...yet. His mane is sorrel and white...no black. Just curious is all. No matter what color he ends up, he is just perfect to me.

I don't have any idea about the black around his eyes...but will say THIS. When I was young, we bred an appy to appy and ended up with one who looked almost exactly like Levi. as a foal, he was very sorrel, and at 3 he was JET BLACK. He still had all the white in the same spots, just totally changed colors. Nobody believed it was the same horse!!

Ooooooooo...that is a cool thought! Never would I have imagined THAT to be possible? No wonder people couldn't believe it was the same horse. Wow...black...hmmmmm. Very interesting.

I am posting Levi's 3 month pictures so that you can see the dramamtic differences in just 6 weeks. LOTS more gray coming in everywhere you see the sorrel. LOTS more mottling around his eyes and his back end. The black around his mouth is actually fading. Still looks much like his sire but seems to be going in a different direction color-wise all of a sudden. Right now shows none of his (paint) dam's characteristics.

Diana ~ I'd love to see pics of the black foal that you got shortly before Levi was born. Curious about the change. Especially since our breedings were amazingly similar. This genetics thing is fun (albiet perplexing).

Wendy,the little black foal I got is still a little black foal...LOL No difference in him at all. Although, after DNA testing, I do realize that our breedings were not as similar as I'd have liked them to be! The foal was out of my leopard stallion, not the snowcap...YAY!! That means that 2010 is a brand new year, and since the leopard has been sold she is DEFINITELY bred to the snowcap. (That sounds bad, I know...but it's not because I'm irresponsible...LOL...it's because I bred her several times to the snowcap in 2008, and when it got late in the season, I went ahead and bred her to the leopard just to make sure she didn't go unbred)I wasn't really positive who had gotten the job done. And I am very happy that it wasn't my snowcap....having a black foal. LOL

On the other hand, the black filly that I had before BOTH of our other foals has changed incredibly!! I'll have to write to the lady who owns her now and ask for more photos.....

Sometimes a true black will not born black but either sorrel or chestnut, or other colors then as they get older the shed out to the black.
