Your questions about appaloosa spotting and genetics answered.
We help breeders, owners and enthusiasts of Appaloosas, Knabstruppers (and other appaloosa spotted horses and ponies) to breed their desired coat patterns by understanding the LP gene and how it interacts with other genes to cause appaloosa coat patterns. And, we do it in plain English aimed at breeders, so you don’t need a degree in genetics to understand!
