Wap Spot spent a little over 3 months in Houston, Texas, in training with JP Giacomini.  These photos were taken after just 10 weeks!

(Unfortunately, I took the photos, and most of them were so dark you could hardly see Spotty!

    Wap Spot, better known as "Spotty", is a breath taking mover.  In all the years of breeding Appaloosas sport horses, I have never seen such extravagant movement.  He naturally carries himself in a frame, impulsion coming from his powerful hind quarters, through to his elastic shoulders.  Over a course of  5 cavalletti, I have increased the distance to 8' between each rail (with a rider) and with his tremendous reach he doesn't miss a beat.  

    Spotty's attitude in hand and while being ridden in the company of other horses is exceptional.  At home, he is stalled between Reflection (a stallion) and Masquerade (a filly).  We take him to the Equine Affaires and World Expos, so people can have the opportunity to meet him in person.  While in the Appaloosa Horse Club booth at the Equine Affaire, Mass. in November 2001, he discovered that by turning and twisting, he could get people to scratch all the correct places.  Some of the comments we've heard: "He's huge!", "Oh my God!", "He's Gorgeous!", "What a sweetheart!", "Look at that bone!", "He can't be an Appaloosa, he must be a Warmblood!", "He's only 3!".  

    Spotty was injured in early February of 1999 and required surgery.  He was totally confined to his stall until November 1999.  Although he has now fully recovered, scars kept us from continuing his show career on the line.  He is already over 16.3 hands and is still growing so we have taken it slow with his under saddle training.  The potential he shows for dressage is unbelievable.

I've been drooling over Jerry and Virginia Hood's Appaloosa Sport Horses for years now; studying their stallions in magazines and checking out their sale horses.  I've never seen any of them until this past Equine Affaire in Springfield, Ma.  The Hood's two year old stallion Wap Spot (Waps Applause X Wap's Confetti) was in Appaloosa breed booth stall.  He was everything the ads promised and then some - actually he was better than I thought he'd be.  Pictures just don't do him justice.  Anyhow, if you missed him you can check him out (and his dad and granddad) at http://www.jgappaloosas.com or info@jgappaloosas.com.  It's a good thing the Hoods are way down in Pennsylvania or I might be taking Cante for a visit in the spring (I don't need another horse, I don't need another horse, I don't...)
Note from Virginia - Geraldine, we ship semen!!!
