Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?

Incredible picture of a Native American warrior riding a cross between the Appaloosa and Akhal Teke breeds, called the Nez Perce horse. Picture from 1910.

Hold the phone here:
#1 The &#8220;Nez Perce Horse&#8221; didn&#8217;t get started until the1990&#8217;s - about 80 years after this picture was said to be taken. (that&#8217;s straight from the official site btw) 
#2 Now if that is, in fact, a Nez Perce person on a horse raised by their tribe&#8217;s breeding program - that would make it an Appaloosa horse aka - the original horse breed developed by the Nez Perce people back in the day and not the mid-1990s attempt to recreate the original Appaloosa with Akhal-Tekes.
#3 If 1910 is indeed the correct date for the photo, I&#8217;d be willing to bet it&#8217;s not an actual - as in product of the Nez Perce tribe breeding program - Appaloosa, because by 1910 the Nez Perce War was long since over and most of their horses long since killed/scattered/crossed with random settlers&#8217; horses.

Welcome to the world, little guy! I know having a big brother that’s famous for winning the Kentucky Derby is hard to imagine and to be measured against, but you’ll do fine!

2014 Bluegrass Cat - Princesspatseattle colt shocked breeders with his interesting coloration. While he is registered as white, he is most likely carries the Sabino gene causing the interesting coloration. His dam’s belly spot suggests she carries the Sabino gene. Plus the dam sire is Airdrie Apache, who shows the phenotype of the Sabino gene.You can read more here http://www.drf.com/blogs/winter-whiteFor more on Sabino - http://www.horse-genetics.com/sabino-horses.html

Just to add one thing about sabino vs white! Airdrie Apache and his dam Not Quite White haven’t been individually tested to my knowledge, but their phenotype is consistent with the “dominant white” KIT locus mutation W5, the same as fellow Raise a Native descendant Puchilingui, who tested for W5 before his death in 2008.
Here’s Airdrie Apache:

And here’s Puchilingui:

Airdrie Apache is also known to have produced many more traditionally “white” offspring who are also consistent with the W5 mutation or similar, e.g. Allamystique (who has been tested for dom white, though I’m not sure if he came back W5 or one of the other Ws)

and his offspring e.g. 

Airdrie Apache also sired Arctic White, the dominant white horse that played Silver in the Lone Ranger film, as well as the headless horseman’s horse in at least the pilot episode of Sleepy Hollow.

And in this famous Barbara Livingston picture, all four horses are either sired by or trace their lineage to Airdrie Apache.

So in all likelihood, despite showing some pigment, the colt IS genetically white!
Here’s the Wikipedia article on the Dominant White gene in horses
