...I get so confused about the different types of paints and the genetics of color.
How the pattern genes are expressed can be very difficult to predict.
In our herd, consider 3 generations/4 closely related horses..
Grandmother "Mandy", with just enough belly white to be a "regular" registry Paint.
Daughter "Lady", mostly white (her other side is completely white).
Grandson "Buckshot", visually, a pretty loud black tobi.
and Buckshot's half sister, "Cinnamon" (same sire)
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
