The story 'Justin Morgan Had A Horse' is the true story of a school teacher in early America and his little horse that became the founding father of the Morgan Horse breed.

No, an Appaloosa (the breed) is a stock horse, like a Quarter Horse or a Paint. Draft horses can come in spotted "appaloosa" colors, but it is a separate breed called the Spotted Draft Horse. Other breeds, such as the Pony of the Americas and the Knabstrupper also come in "appaloosa" spots, but although they have the same color they are not the same breed.
Then the horse would be a part-bred, though it would most likely not be quite a Welsh part-bred breed, (there is a breed called Welsh part-bred).

I think if the shire is a pure breed shire and the Morgan is a pure breed Morgan, you will get a breed that is 50% shire, 50% Morgan, but it will show up as being the breed of the mother. If, say for instance, the foal is 49% shire and 51% Morgan, the foal will show up as being Morgan. But you can check under the genetic tab of the certain foal.
If you read the book "Justin Morgan Had A Horse" by Marguerite Henry you will get most the story however that book is realistic fiction so not all of it's true. In short the Morgan horse got their name from Justin Morgan who owned a little stallion of unknown bloodlines who was bred to many mares for his great strength,speed, and endurance. Since Justin Morgan owned the stallion the breed was named after him.
