Appaloosa Territory

Appaloosa History:
Navajo Britches F-2709

In skimming past issues of the Appaloosa News, it penetrated my conscious that the majority of the Mansfield horses were well colored Appaloosas...something that has a habit of attracting my attention. What follows is a simple presentation of another of the Comanche bred Appaloosas.

When I started compiling the Comanche horses, I began to realize the scope of Mansfield's Comanche's influence on the Appaloosa. As time allows, his prolific sons and other grandget will be added on other pages.

Navajo Britches is a great great grandson.

Any contributions would be Appaloosa-ly appreciated and attributed.

Again, my thanks to Tracy Meisenbach for Navajo Britches' production list [2016].

Mansfield's Comanche Breeder's Association was formed at some point and was still viable in 1971. It appears to be an advertising cooperative, much like the early Sundance ads. I am not aware that it evolved into a club like Sundance. Any further information on this association would be appreciated. [Other similar organizations were the Dark Cloud Breeders, the Toby Breeders, the Red Eagle Breeders.]
