Just going to point out AQHA horses do carry frame. Frame does not always show. It is extremely good at hiding.

The stud is for sure frame. What about his marking was making you think he was homozygous for color?

He obviously only has one frame/OLWS gene otherwise he wouldn't be here...

What is your stallion's registered name? Give all the info here and someone might just know him or even have his offspring.

And please know, nobody is ganging up on you. We are here to help you and the horse/s you might consider producing. It's just that many of us on forums such as this, often see people breeding without having done the (always) required homework, to become a responsible breeder. There are thousands of wonderful horses going to slaughter each and every day in the US. Every single animal produced, should be most carefully bred in this difficult economy.

Your Stallion is definitely looks like he carries frame{OLWS positive}.He & Any further mares he may breed should be tested.
Do you have his registered name & that of the mare that could be looked up?
That can give you more indications to how this cross may turn out both pedigree & color patterning. example:He appears black but if he comes from a line of black horses he may be Homo for black that will change your color predictions.
Knowing pedigree,will also tell you if the stud should have any other genetic testing done like that of HYPP or HERDA.
Breeding should not be entered into lightly ,these things among MANY others should have been considered before any mating.....

And I understand that, I do. All the foals we've had have been raised and shown by our family. We plan on doing the same with this one (hopefully!)
The only reason (like I said I don't know much about paint markings) that I thought he could be homozygous is due to a couple things I've read online. The markings on his neck, I know they're not exact paw prints, but I wasn't sure if they'd qualify. They are outlined with blue looking skin, which was something I read on Stallings Show Horses paint website. As for his registered name, I'll try to get that later tonight. Thanks!

I think someone with a apha membership could look up his get too! So youd be able to see his foals and know who they belong to and if any have any show records.

Pawprints, even on a tobiano, are not linked to homozygousity. It is an old wives tale. There is NO way to tell if a tobiano is homozygous or heterozygous without testing.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
