Appaloosa Territory

Tidbits: (Some of) the Appaloosas of Jane Kilberg, Texas

Jane Kilberg was offering for sale a mare I was swooning over. She sent the following photos. Alas, I was unable to find the $$, and never purchased her. Her name was FM Walkara Z, a black roan leopard type mare who had a delicious pedigree to my mind. She had both Arab Taswirah Alkhar F-2417 and Bearstep/Moroccan/Morgan's Leopard. Ohh La LA!

Walkara had had three foals for Jane at the time.


This is Skyline, sired by Kathy Maynard's stallion Coyote's Apache.


This is a gelding named Country Cooking and Jane. He was sired by BBF Spanish Roca.

While going through y boxes of Appaloosa "stuff", I noticed that Walkara, as a young thing, was once owned by Money Creek Ranches. Her story: Foaled in 1976, bred by Fred Phipps, Minnesota. Sold to Money Creek in 1977, who sold her to Wapitew Farm, Virginia in 1978. Then sold to Kathy Maynard, Vermont in 1981, and to Jane, Texas in 1984. Again, alas, not to me. Jane sold her to Elaine Whitworth of Tennessee. [Thanks, Bonnie, for the owner name correction.]
