Here is my appaloosa colt Tex again – can you see how painfully shy he is … NOT !!!!

Although Tex has no spots now, it is highly likely he will colour out as he matures, as he shows definite genetic attributes of the appaloosa breed. Fingers crossed!

    What a lovely little guy! Don’t grow too quick, I want to get pics of my own.
    In what way could he ‘colour out’? This is all new for me. By the way, we had fun catching up with Regal and his folk but still need to go through my pics ;-)

  • “colour out” in appalosa terms means he may well develop spots in his coat as he matures (my mare Splendour started out with a really small lace blanket & is now frosted/roaning, which started when she was 4yo)

    I think so too Rosalie, he is a stunning but unusual colour (am not prepared to commit myself to what colour will call him yet LOL)
