Apache Double Article on Apache Double - one of the Appaloosa breed's racing greats himself, and an outstanding sire. [March 2016]


Appaloosa Tibits #1: Quanah F-706 Article written by Robert Lapp and posted here with his permission.

Suffice it to say Quanah won or placed in W. Pleasure, Nez Perce Stake race, and actual 1/4 mile races. A champion equine athlete with color and speed... Appaloosa versatility at its best.


Appaloosa Tibits #2: Revel Junior F-1728 Article written by Robert Lapp and posted here with his permission.

For many in the Appaloosa industry, seeing the name "Revel" usually brings to mind two historically well-known horses, Sunspot Revel and Caliente Revel, both premier performance horses and sires. Much has been written about them. Less frequently does one recognize a "Junior" associated with "Revel". However, without "Junior", we would have no Sunspot or Caliente, for he was the sire of Sunspot, and one of his daughters, Revel Ann, was Caliente's dam.


Appaloosa Tibits #3: Paisano F-1023 Article written by Robert Lapp and posted here with his permission.

Paisano will probably not make it to the ApHC Hall of Fame, but he was a good Appaloosa who represented the finest of "Appaloosa" at a time when our breed was just beginning to develop a foothold in the equine industry of the Eastern U.S. Mr. Camp probably put it best: "He was a gentleman who passed his manners to all of his get."


Appaloosa Tibits #4: Nansel's Chocolate Sunday #10056 Article written by Robert Lapp and posted here with his permission.

Nansels knew years earlier that they had a good the making. It started at the prestigous National Western in Denver, January 1961. Only the third year for Appaloosas at this infamous event, Chocolate Sunday won 1st place over 67 other entries in the class of Stallions Foaled in 1960. His sire was there too, Sunday Pants--who placed 5th in Aged Stallions. Denver was an equine family event that year---Chocolate Sunday's grandsire, the great eventual Hall of Famer, High Hand, won Reserve Champion Stallion. From a family of halter and performance horses, only time would tell if this halter baby would ride. And ride he did, early-on too.


Appaloosa Tibits #5: WM's Copper Dollar F-3187 Article written by Robert Lapp and posted here with his permission.

He was like the children's story about "The Little Engine That Could". Barely 14.2 before being trimmed, he was The Little Horse That "Did", did it all, often, and in a big way...
