I wouldn't say Drifter has splash at all. All white markings ARE caused by a gene somewhere, but nothing has been isolated that would pinpoint what and where that gene or genes may be. Only one mutation of sabino is currently isolated for testing, so there is possibility for many other mutations that could be causing basic facial markings. My APHA mare has a wide blaze that both widens between her eyes and aprons on her nose. She's out of a loud colored mare who is obviously frame and splash. My mare is only frame.

Can he have a sabino gene without being registered as a paint? He is AQHA Appendix registered. Haven't done a lot of sleuthing into the QH side of his breeding beyond on his papers, but if paint was in his history wouldnt his family tree had stayed paint? AQHA/APHA confuses me so sorry If I am not making a lot of sense haha
And AQHA horses carry all of the "overo" genes: frame, splash, and sabino. There are plenty of horses that are registered as AQHA and have white patterns. Sonny Dee Bar, for example, had enough white from carrying splash to make him look flashy, but not enough to kick him out of the AQHA.
