History of a Appaloosa
The Appaloosa is independent, intelligent, and courageous. It can also be fierce -- making it an ideal war horse in the past. Currently, it is considered one of the best riding horses, especially for those who know how to handle horses.
A common health issue for Appaloosas is parasites, but proper grooming, sanitation, de-worming, and other preventative methods should take care of this problem.
