Splash is an overo pattern. So is frame and sabino.

The AQHA did get rid of the 'excessive white' rule (both parents do not need to be solid), but the certificates are marked noting that it is an 'undesireable trait'.

Splash and frame are not the only undesirable white popping up in AQHA horses.

Basically you can register QHxQH and QHxTB and TBxTB *IF* there is more visible white than if you have Paint parent(s).

Rule RG-070-1 was passed adding a provision for horses with both sire and dam registered with AQHA, Jockey Club or the combination of these two registries. Effective January 1, 2013 (applications must be postmarked after January 1, 2013), horses eligible for registration with the American Quarter Horse Association or the Jockey Club will be eligible for registration with APHA if they meet the specific registration requirements which includes new color specifications. The qualifying area must be a minimum of four inches of solid white hair visible from a direct side view. Excessive white on the head or lower legs will not qualify the horse, nor will white areas located on the lower portion of the horse’s abdomen.

Yes they can Muppet. They were able to before (around the same time the AQHA lifted their white rule APHA implemented at that time a rule that one parent had to be APHA registered, they have since changed it again to what was posted above).

^^^ Yes, with some subtle differences from the pre one Paint parent rule days. Besides the different white requirements, note that the horse must be eligible to be JC or AQHA registered, I.e. They've created a whole new set of double registered horses.

I'm curious Breezy how do you know if your mare isn't paint bred since you don't know her lineage? Your mare does carry pinto white genes though that's why she has blue eyes. She has frame or splash. Though QH's as well as many other breeds carry pinto genes, that's why there needs to be way more education about frame. But she is a pretty mare .

I don't know for sure, but I am going to try and look into the backgronds of her sire (from his registered parents) as he can be registered at any time.
