Spotted Horses

Document Type



Of late much has been said about the great increase in light horse interest. More fairs have had classes for light horses than ever before, and much more material has been written about them. With this interest and publicity two breeds of spotted horses, the Morocco Spotted Horse and the Appaloosa, or Leopard Spotted horse, remain rather obscure. It is not that these horses are of recent development nor that they are not good horses. They have been going through a period of fixation of breed characters and now are coming to the forefront as animals which can uniformly transmit their desired characters.
