Appaloosa Horse

Series of side elevation illustrations of the Appaloosa Horse

The Appaloosa Horse is an American horse breed most famous for its colorful pattern of spotted coats. There are a variety of body types within the race, which stem from various horse races' historical influence.

The pattern of each horse is genetically derived from the various patterns of spots, overlaid by one of a few recognized colors of the base coat, such as white, black, grey, and brown. The Appaloosa Horse is a tall, tight-fit, squatty horse. The form of the body represented a mix that started before 1700 in the American plains with typical Spanish Horses.

Appaloosa Horses have a shoulder height of 14-16 hands (56”-64” | 142-163 cm), an overall weight in the range of 950-1250 lb (431-567 kg) and a typical lifespan of 30 years. Appaloosa Horses have coat color and spotting variations labeled as: spots, snowflake, snowcap, frost, blanket, Roan blanket, Appaloosa Roan, leopard, and mottled.
