Appaloosas Come In All Shapes And Sizes
Appaloosas are horses with spotted coats. Like roans, Appaloosas are a combination of a common base coat color and the color of their spots. Darker appaloosas have white spots and lighter appaloosas have dark spots.
Appaloosa horses also usually have really bright eyes. The whites of their eyes, or their scleras, are visible, which is unique for horses. Appaloosas also have striped hooves, which is a result of their spotted pigmentation extending past their legs.
