Aires would look EPIC as a (golden) buckskin! A Tru Rolex is a good-looking stud. Some idiot asked me if I was going to breed Aires when I first got him because she'd love a foal out of him. *facepalm*

Meant to ask, painted...where are you seeing the sabino? I'm pretty good with tobiano versus overo versus tovero, but the more subtle patterns (splash, frame, sabino, etc) escape me unless they're SUPER obvious.

FYI tovero is NOT a pattern. It is an outdated catch all name that means Tobiano + some other white pattern gene such as sabino, frame or splash.

Tobi for sure on him, and I'd say splash as well just from the way his face markings fall.

One handsome animal there!

Thanks, NdAppy. I think I remember seeing that here somewhere, but yeah. I know his sire is listed as "tovero" on his papers, but his sire is also 15-years-old, so I'm sure terminology has changed quite a bit since then.

Thanks, Black Cricket! I really got lucky with him, considering how fugly his sire is and how fugly his half-sister (same sire and age, just different Percheron dam) turned out. He's my handsome boy. Any time anyone new comes onto the property, either to look at boarding, look at buying a horse from the BO or for lessons, the first place they go is invariably his stall.

Tobiano for sure, he's gorgeous too!!

He's definitely tobiano, but I've seen pictures of his sire and his sire definitely has splash in him. So I'd say Aires is tobiano+splash which technically is considered tovero because it's tobiano gene+overo gene. See the white and black crossing over his back? That's an indication of 2 patterns at play, plus his white stockings, which is very common in splash.

Thanks, CLaPorte.

I kept wondering if there was a different pattern at play than just the tobiano because of how weird his blaze/snip is and the really high white on his legs.

For those of you who haven't seen it, this is the other side of the equation that resulted in my stunning boy:
