What part was confusing you? I want to make sure we get you understanding. Lol

Oh just about roan not being a pattern. I understand now, because someone pointed out what made you say it, but I was wondering why you were telling me it wasn't a pattern haha

Lol oh I was actually saying it because the stud owner was/are claiming that you get a colored foal. While technically that is true, most people would think that colored is the tobiano pattern. More so since roan is not a pinto pattern.

So they are actually guranteeing a roan foal? Or can you not guarantee either roan or pinto foals?

They are guaranteeing that it will have some sort of white pattern. They can't say if it will be roan or tobiano, but they are guaranteeing that you will get one of the two.

Haha that's silly if they can't actually guarantee either

All they are guaranteeing is that you will get one of the two. So it's a toss up which one you will get.

They couldn't guarantee colour even if he was homo for tobiano. Yes, the horse would get a tobi gene, and yes, tobi is dominant. But.... tobi can minimally express, from high white on the legs through to completely solid horses with no white at all. I have seen pics of a mare that has tested homozygous for tobi and has no white on her at all.
