Which "pinto" gene are you talking about? Because there are dozens: testable - tobiano, frame, splash 1, splash 2, splash 3, sabino 1, 5 strains of dominant white; untestable at present - at least one more splash, at least one more sabino, rabicano, and at least 6 more dominant white strains.
Arabians are known to have sabino, but a currently untestable strain. They also probably have splash, but as I haven't seen any Arabians being tested I can't tell you if it is splash 1 or a different strain that doesn't have a test yet. Arabians have rabicano too, and at least one of the dominant white strains are in Arabians.
So please, which "pinto" gene are you referring to?
