My Appaloosa Postcards

One of my favorite breed of horses is the appaloosa and I am proud to have an extensive collection of 'breed cards'. These are all identified cards of champion stallions that farms used to advertise their stallions.

Here is a list of the identified stallions I have at this date, (February 27, 2000). An asterisk * means the card is pictured in my Appaloosa Gallery
