Due to popularity, we will once again be holding our Membership Special from October 1st through December 31st. This is an added bonus for new members and for renewal of expired memberships, as the membership will be good for the remainder of 2022 and all of 2023.
At this reduced price, memberships can only be purchased for 2023 and/or 2024. If you have already used this special in the past, please note that if you are already paid through 2024, you will not be able to use this special this year, and if you are paid through 2023, you will only be able to use the special for 2024.
ICAA will once again be holding its annual stallion service auction. Details will be sent out via email, posted on Facebook, and posted here on the website for the list of stallions and the dates the auction begins and ends. Bidding typically starts in mid-December, so stallion owners, if you want to donate your stallion and he is not yet registered and/or still needs some testing, you may want to get started with the process! Please contact us for help with any of this.
You will receive free advertising if you donate your stallion, in addition to receiving a free registration in 2023 or 2024. He will be advertised here on the website, on the ICAA Facebook Auction page, on the ICAA Facebook page, and shared to many Appaloosa groups. You will also be helping ICAA to move forward while still keeping our fees low if your stallion’s service sells. Stallions must be ICAA registered or pending registration and be 6-Panel negative.
By bidding on our stallions so graciously donated by these stallion owners, you will be receiving the services of a quality stallion that is 6-Panel negative, at a discounted fee, as well as helping keep ICAA’s fees low. You will also receive a free membership.

We have a wonderful article this quarter by Joanne Jordan on Base Color Genetics! This is a great starting point for those who want to learn the basics of the base color of a horse. What color is the horse pictured above? Read the article to find out! The horse pictured is Poplars Zamocha (F6N), photo credit: Sovereign Photography.
You will also find some useful information sent to us by Animal Genetics (AGI) about pulling hair for test samples, along with a couple of photos showing good and bad samples.
"Seeking the best of any breed is a noble venture. Buying a purebred animal ensures that breed characteristics are continued for the future." If you choose to buy a foal from a reputable breeder... see the rest in the Newsletter!
AGI has revamped their system and you will no longer be using our forms for test submittals. You will tell us what to order and we will order the tests for you (you will still be sending payment and hair sample directly to AGI). In the process, we did get some wonderful new and much lower discounts for combined packages for our members! Please see the Forms page for more information; the details are located there where the form had been.
