The Niimipoo (Nez Perce) said they bred for horses that were faster and with great endurance. Intelligent and robust, easy keepers (as they'd call it now-days)The Palouse band, culturally related to the Nez Perce, were renowned horse breeders and horse traders; the Appaloosa horse, with its distinctive spotted coat, its speed, and stamina, takes its name from the Palouse Indians. That's what we do at Goin Rogue Ranch, we carry on that tradition.
