Thats very interesting!!! Does anyone have an idea why this is?

Perhaps, but if so I've never seen an explanation. On the surface, there is no reason why spots would appear on the rear and not on the front. I assume it has something to do with the back and rump being the area where Appy patterns are most expressed, but to be perfectly honest I am clueless.

As an aside, even though I raised Appys for many years I am not a "color" person, but the most beautiful horse I have ever seen was an increble Pintaloosa in Wyoming about 15 years ago...

Maybe it does have to do with the Appy pattering being on the back and rump that does it....Im not a color person either to be honest, and honestly, this was the first Pintaloosa, and the only one that I have ever personally seen...

Thank you!! These pics are from the small little middle of nowhere auction she was at, quite a few people showed up, but no one liked her confo, or color what so ever except for my friend, who ended up buying her....she has the sweetest personality on her :) Thanks again!

I've been told my Claymore is a bay tobiano/pintaloosa with sabino. Her markings certainly are very similar to his, though she has more color on her front half than he does.

Could be a sister, who knows?

Or maybe a baby. I am told Claymore sired 17 foals before I had him gelded when I purchased him - I have seen pictures of several, he certainly threw color. But then again, he also threw some serious conformation train wrecks. Like, scary ones. Getting gelded was the best thing to ever happen to him!

They do look very similar....but your right, she does have more color up front than he does. I personally, like his markings much more than hers, but that's just me! Thanks for posting a pic of him! Nice to see something similar!
