Schleich Appaloosa foal (Equus ferus)
Typical characteristics of Appaloos are their eyes with a white sclera and their leopard-spotted skin. Primary Habitat: Domesticated
Appaloosa is a horse breed that springs from the Spanish horse that was imported to North America in the 18th century. Almost every Appaloosa has a square physique which is typical for Western horses. This also includes a small head with big, awake eyes and a straight nose line. They have a strong back and are muscular altogether. That is why they are fast and agile. In particular their striking fur speckles are characteristic for this breed.
