    very interesting colour changes and CUTE to boot :) you must be very happy with her. just curious though on the knabstrupper, where does it come from I know its roughly a warmblood with spots... where did the spots come from whats the heritage breed that gave them the spots?

    Yes it's a warmblood :)

    I work on a Knabbie stud :) We have a loud leopard, two blankets, a few spot and the Varnish stallion at work :)

    At one show my boss took her AWHA registered Knabbie blanketed gelding, she was told by the judge "I used to breed Appies too" She was gobsmacked! The judge didn't even check the breeds she was judging. Ah well, hopefully the more I get the boys out there the better :)

    Basically, before stud books were created, the leopard gene was relatively common.
    It has PREhistorical significance.

    Many studbooks USED to have spots.. perhaps the best known one being the Lipizzaner.

    Then the Knabstrupper breed was founded
