March 21, 2008, Newsletter Issue #268: Appaloosa-Markings on the Body

Tip of the Week

Location Of Patterns
In reviewing the descriptions of various coat patterns, the necessity of correctly specifying anatomical regions of the horse probably became quite apparent. The five classifications of blanket pattern locations used by the Appaloosa Horse Club are:

Loin and hips
Back and hips (markings extend over a portion of the back, up to the withers.)
Body and hips (markings extend from the hips, inclusive of a portion of the shoulders and/or neck, but do not cover the entire horse.)
Entire body (markings cover the head, neck, shoulder, back, loin hips and upper legs).
