This is not directed at ClaPorte, but I would just like to clarify her statement as not technically correct. I know you meant to say "no such thing as homozygous FRAME overo." There is indeed homozygous splash 1 overo which is perfectly safe to breed for.
I have a lovely, opinionated, very much alive boy waiting on me to get my butt to the barn to take care of all of his scratching needs right now to prove it is true. We all talk about how important it is to be as genetically correct as the current information allows when speaking about white color patterns, so I had to step in. I don't want impressionable people to avoid every type of overo just because of the frame overos. Posted via Mobile Device
