Color Experts Wanted - AQHA/APHA Mare

This is my dual registered AQHA/APHA mare Shay, can anyone take a guess what color pattern gene's she carries?

Granted, I'm no color expert, but I'll throw my .02 cents in there and stick with them until someone proves me wrong.

I see frame, splash, rabicano...and beyond that, I have no idea LOL.

For sure frame, splash, sabino, and rabicano. Did you say tobiano in the other thread? I don't remember. I've also not put any research into determining the subtle nuances of each splash mutation though, so I couldn't pinpoint which. I don't see tobiano much, if you did mention that, but definitely sabino with the jaggedness and the big circle over her eye.

Frame, splash, sabino and rabicano.

Frame is easy - that white is just going nuts horizontally all over lol.

Splash, this is the only one I hesitated on really. I think it is there, the hook under the jaw is very splashy to me, it makes her face white very bottom heavy.

Sabino is there too - the way the white is avoiding the eyes so diligently, and the arrowheads on the leg white. It's also letting frame get all jagged up on her, which if only splash was there, I would expect some crisper edges.

Rabicano is causing the white at the tail head, in the coon tail fashion. She might also have some heavier ticking on her flanks, but this could easily be lost in the white already there.
smrobs and Poseidon like this.

No I don't think this mare has any tobiano but she has "Haloing" which Chillia says is most common with Tobiano so I was wondering what caused that.

Rabicano for sure, she is very roaned in her flanks in the summer time (her other side has less color)

As a general rule in sabino's the white doesn't touch the eyes?

Sabino especially doesn't like white to touch the eyes. Frame doesn't usually either, but it doesn't seem to work as hard to not touch. Splash LOVES white over the eyes. That doesn't mean that every horse without white on the eyes must have sabino, but her face white is actively avoiding the eyes, a good indication for me.

Oooh. Okay. I combined posts in my head and was thinking you thought she was tobiano too.

With what Chiilaa said, did you happen to save that picture of the mare who had ridiculous rings around her eyes? She belonged to a member here, but I have no idea what thread it was in. It was similar to your mare, FG, but the sabino went completely out of its way to keep the white from the eyes.

I don't know the one you mean, but you mean this effect?

Somewhat. Basically the same concept though.
