>>>>>Easttowest - Makes sense! So in your professional opinion, would that sharp facial marking of hers be a dead giveaway for splash? Should I ignore her lineage and assume she has splash hiding to be able to produce a face marking like that and lack the chest shield?
To me, she "feels" like she has splash. To me, its not really "ignoring" anything in her lineage-- just realizing that registry descriptions and personal/breeder descriptions sometimes only document the most obvious pattern and don't catch/describe less obvious patterns the horse may also have-- particularly in a case like her, where she is obviously tobiano, and less obviously "something else' as well as tobiano.
