Examples 1 through 10 are pictures of Appaloosa characteristics. If you have an Appaloosa with no coat pattern that you think may be eligible for the Breeding Stock Registry, you may need to send in pictures of white sclera (Example 1 and 2), mottled skin (Examples 3, 4 and 5), and striped hooves (Examples 6, 7, 8 and 9). Please note, horses with white leg markings do not have striped hooves.
Some horses with white leg markings have ermine marks. Any color that runs into the coronet band, such as ermine marks, will cause the color to run through the hoof. See Example 10. This is not an Appaloosa striped hoof and will not qualify as such.
