What you're saying doesn't really make sense to me. Are you saying that a classic frame or splash or tobiano with white on their face or legs is never caused by sabino - but white on the face and legs of solid horses always is?
I think a most facial and leg markings on solid horses are caused by sabino, but I think some are caused by frame and splash as well. Otherwise it would be as common to see frame and splash with no face white as it is to see tobiano with no face white. And I've never seen a splash or a frame with a solid face.
Sorry, I had a feeling that wasn't going to make sense...
I really love genetics, and I read somewhere that they think sabino causes the white facial & leg markings on otherwise solid horses. That's a very good point though, I hadn't thought of that.
I'll have to try to find the website I was talking about, because I'm sure I'm doing a horrible job trying to explain what I mean.
