    I may not know much about genetics, but one semester in college was enough to tell me that characteristics don't "just happen." There our a genetic explanation for everything, even if we don't know exactly what that is.

    Thanks to all who responded.

    Apologies on my part.

    Seems there's always a good debate to be had in the majority of color threads.

    I agree that your boy has something else going on besides the Tobiano, as something is causing his face white (and I'm obviously a keen supporter of any of the overo genes causing white markings). I find it very interesting that his body markings are almost symmetrical, unless photos were flipped. He's absolutely stunning.

    Yes the markings are very, very similar on both sides. He does have an odd, light circle marking on his right flank. I was wondering if it was an actual marking or due to an injury.

    Your welcome :)
    That's how I explain it to my less color understanding horsey friends.

    I was thinking something like that, but wasn't sure.. Cloning is so creepy, lol. I can't wait to see what kinds of genetic mutations they make.. What if they cloned a talking horse?.. Or a horse that barked like a dog, lol.. Just creepy!
