I knew of a app breeder that got a LOUD splash foal out of their registered apps. This was their last foal and was quite a disappointment, said she'd been telling the mare lots of white, but should have been more spesific (no app characteristics at all). He was an adorable (and well bred) colt, they desided to give him away, I almost got him! If it hadn't been for distance I would have, I love Splashed whites!

Brandy is a silver bay(red chocolate) RMH. Lol she was mid shake in the line up.

Stalker is a smoky black. Mama was black and sire was Cremello. Dry, he is a very dark steel gray/black with flaxen streaks in his tail. Up and coming 2 yr old stud with UNBELIEVABLE potential.

COOOL mare! I am 99% certain that what she is exhibiting is is minimal splash white. Slightly bottom-heavy, hourglass or dog-bone shaped face markings (like her big star, narrow strip, then a full-nose snip) are typical of minimally expressed splash, and blue eyes are a big clue for splash. No leg markings are rather unusual even in minimal expression, but being black can suppress expression.

I would LOVE to see photos of her parents/ancestry-- splash can indeed hide for several generations (its there, just expressing in minimal form) but there are usually little clues....

This famous splash marked Paint stallion, Gambling Man, for example had two solid AQHA registered parents-- both parents are noted as having "normal" small white leg/face markings. His lineage for generations back is all registered QH so it was hiding for a fair while.

Thanks! That's really interesting.

This is Mystique's dam: LTO Bodealia, foxtrotter for sale in Florida

She has a stripe that widens as it goes down her face and no leg markings.

This is Mystique's sire: http://i40.tinypic.com/k2ycuh.jpg

No facial or leg markings. (It looks like he has a star and a snip in the photo, but according to his papers, he has none.)

This is her full sister: Princess Aida W., foxtrotter for sale in Florida

Again, no leg markings.

Mystique actually has one leg marking, but it's tiny. It's a little triangle on her hind pastern (I think it's technically called a partial pastern): http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3497/...ca6738a5_o.jpg

Here's her pedigree, so you can see the colors (and some photos) of her ancestors: Clouds Mystique W Missouri Fox Trotter

Wow, I JUST discovered she has a full brother I didn't even know existed.

He's black, too, and here's how his markings are described on his papers "Both eyes blue; Star with narrow stripe widening to snip; marking on right side upper lip; left rear inside heel."

Sound familiar? Those are my mare's EXACT markings... except for the lip marking. I wish I could find a picture of him, but there don't seem to be any online : /

Thanks so much for the help! I've always wondered what gave her the blue eyes. Can splash be DNA tested for?
