    Yes, white hairs can pop up, you see them fairly often on Arabians.

    In Arabians a parent has to be black (non homozygous), chestnut or grey to get a Chestnut. Being you said one parent was Straight Egyptian(SE) and black is where thoes white hairs are comming from. This tends to be more common in SE Arabs. I have a SE Chesnut Sabino who is white flecked, mother was a bay but dad was black till about 5 then started going grey.

    Arabian color genes are different from the rest of the horse world, white markings, rabicino, or sabino markings are not caused by "pinto genes". Arabians do not carry that gene at all.

    But hope this helps a bit. And his polish lines show through...his body especially.

    Your post is almost entirely incorrect, and thus unhelpful. Please feel free to read up on what genes Arabians have - they may have a very limited number, but those are the same as those genes in other breeds.

    What part of that post was incorrect? I found it to be quite accurate actually. The Egyptian-bred Arabians actually are responsible for most of the rabicano coloring we see in Arabians. I've owned/been involved with Arabians since the 1960's. Arabians do not carry the pinto gene.

    Remali there is more than one type of pinto gene out there. ALL white on a horse is either caused by a "pinto" gene, LP or PATN, and arabians sure as heck don't have the last two but they DO have multiple pinto genes.

    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?

    I am referring to tobiano and overo.

    I don't consider rabicano and sabino as true "pinto". Especially rabicano.

    Which overo? There are multiple pinto patterns within the "overo family" and sabino happens to be one of them...

    Thank you sooooo much for that, Dreamcatcher! I'm a little confused because the owners told us he was twelve, but I guess thirteen isn't bad.
