When I see the non-TB sire shown at the bottom of this page
it makes imagine how would a Faux Finish-like appaloosa TB would look like. Its curious to known that the TB breed has achieved practically
all major coat colors except the appallosa pattern. I have a theory
that if perhaps we try to integrate the 4 characteristics that makes an appaloosa, one by one, perhaps we may achieve one. For example, going to for simpler one and try to mate TBs with visible white sclera, then try to add the next characteristic, then the other one, etc, we may propitiate the appearance of an example. What do you think?
Thanks for your comments.

Jorge,

Have you been following the research that the Appaloosa project has been doing? Their model is that there are two gene/gene complexes at work. One that gives the pattern, and one that gives the appy roan. It will be great once the pattern gene can be tested for.

I've seen photos of a Andalusian with full blanket. This seems to be quite an embaresment to the breeders so they keep them out of sight till the spots grey out. Seems a shame and a business opportunity for someone to start breeding baroque Andalusian horses.

Xactorfan,

Thank you very much for sharing this piece of information.
Would like to learn more on this study and see their pictures

Thanks again,

As per the aforementioned link (see below), it seems you cannot link it from here, but if you go directly to their main page, you can. What a beautiful photo and equine:

Jorge, alot of the white tb's have mottled skin around the eyes and mouth, similar to an appaloosa. The white tb stallion I use to own is getting more black skin spots on him every year. I know these tbs are sabino's, but the mottled skin is kind of strange.

I went looking for spotted TBs on the web and here is an interesting discussion about a mare.

No it just isn't possible. The Lp complex does not exist in the TB breed and probably never did. (or we'd have seen some evidence of it somewhere). There are plenty of 15/16, 99/100 Appy spotted TBs out there but until cross breeding is allowed by the JC they will remain high percentage TB Appaloosas. Something tells me the JC is NEVER going to allow a horse in with Appaloosa spots! :D

There are of course our white spotted TBs like Pelouse's Queen but they are most likely to be odd sabinos or simply over loaded with birdcatcher spots or have a mutation that is not commonly passed along. They could also have a fungus!
