Knabstrupper Coat Colours and Breed Characteristics


When breeding, inheritance of the spotted coat pattern is difficult to predict.

 There is no guarantee of coat pattern when crossing two spotted horses; it can result in solid coloured as well as spotted foals; just as a spotted and a solid horse very often produce a spotted foal when bred to one another. 



Breed Characteristics









Mottled Muzzle                                   Mottled Genitalia










White Sclera                                         Striped Hooves
