Six Indian Horses: Appaloosas
- The Appaloosa has a leopard-spot patterning overlaid on a regular base-coat color.
- They also boast striped hooves, and have visible white circles surrounding the brown irises of their eyes.
- Traditionally, this breed was tall, narrow, rangy, and had a sparse mane and tail.
- Coat patterns and colorings often change as the horse grows older.
- This breed is unfortunately more prone to eye problems, poor night vision, and blindness.
- The Appaloosa was adopted as Idaho’s official state horse in 1975.
