Last update: April 24, 2013.
Doing some database cleanup -- what do you want to see most?
Siblings? Grand-get? Appy percentages? Genetic testing results?
The code for auto-generating the Appaloosa percentage (e.g. ApHC & FAHR methods) is in BETA and secretly online! Wasn't really worth it until I had
most registration numbers put in the database, but it's a start.
Lots of possibilities, and quite a few things not yet online.
I'd really like to do more tracking of health-related issues, color/pattern genetics, and shuffling across the various Appaloosa lines... just need some more
resources and time!
I'd love to put a bunch of photos back online, but that takes storage space... anyont want to donate some $$$ for the cause?
I could really use a lot more help tracking down ApHCC numbers and pedigrees!
As always, thanks for all the recent helpful emails, and pre-apologies if I don't respond immediately.
P.S. A continutal thank you to Kaye Phelps for loaning me ApHC Studbook #1 8(?!) years ago; I haven't forgotten, it was just buried for a while after college...
The Appaloosa Pedigree Database is a collection of bloodline information for
over 100,000 horses. It's a work in progress and there's still a lot of
information that needs to be filled in; hopefully, you'll be able to find
information on at least a couple horses.
This page's creation was inspired over a decade ago, while researching the pedigree of my first horse, Princes Joy of CW. A truly
versatile, hardy horse, she passed away
on 02/21/2011, just shy of her 30th birthday. Joy will be missed by lots of people; she won over
quite a few to the Appaloosa breed. See a pic of Joy from the week
before. Not too bad looking for an old girl!
Some important notes:
This site is NOT affiliated with any breed association, such as the ApHC,
ICAA, AApA, CRHA, etc. While every effort is made to
ensure that pedigrees in the database are correct, for official pedigrees,
please contact the appropriate breed association.
Horses of Appaloosa descent are highlighted in boldface in the pedigrees.
Yes, this actually includes several AQHA horses!
Some horses are listed with 'registration' numbers of the format AP0000000
or similar - these are NOT actual registration numbers, but are tracking
IDs for horses whose real registration numbers are either
unknown or unavailable. If you know the REAL registration number for one of
these horses, please let me know!
This site is free to use, and will always remain that way. However, I will gladly accept any donations!
Contact me if interested; I do have PayPal.
Q: What is an Appaloosa?
A: The Appaloosa is a breed of horse developed in the northwest U.S. by the Nez Perce tribe. Best
known for its
uniquely spotted coat, the Appaloosa is a versatile, athletic, level-headed horse. For more information,
check out: http://www.appaloosa.com.
Searching the Database:
- Use '%' as a wildcard to match any number of characters
- Searching by name automatically appends '%' to your search, so entering
the first few letters of a horse's name is usually sufficient for narrowing the search down.
- After searching, a listing of horses will be returned. Clicking on a horse's name will then generate
a pedigree (the number of generations determined by your search selection).
- The pedigree displays a horse's registration number, foal year, color, sex, and bloodlines, with
links to a pedigree
for each of the horse's ancestors. There are links to that horse's photo
(if available) and all offspring listed in the database.
