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?
