Rareb By Yamashta-daok468 by Ulfrheim Appaloosa - Appaloosa is a white patchy marking that can be seen hosting on the back/upper half end of a Felvarg, Much like the blanket appaloosa marking on horses. The white patchy marking lays upon the top of a Felvarg with optional white patches outside of it and erased segments inside of it, revealing the markings and base coat below.
