Its a defiant possibility till they create a test for it no one will know for sure. She is a beautiful mare by the way. I know very little when it comes down to the genes there are people who know a lot more and can tell the break down of the alles.

Thank you :)

I'm interested in knowing about genes but seems to be hard to understand.

The various pinto genes are not all linked to the same gene. Like I said before, SB1, Tobiano, & Dominant White (a LOT of which are mis-identified as Sabinos) are ALL linked to the KIT gene, along with Roan.
As of right now, Splash White is considered a separate gene, as is OLW (Frame) & Rabicano.

There is the "White Factor" that determines how expressed a horse's white is, which might be what you're talking about?

Soooo there isn't a test I can buy or send off some hair to see what she is?

The only pattern genes that you can currently test for are Frame, Sabino1, & Tobiano. They haven't developed tests for Splash or Rabicano yet.

Do you know how much testing is?
And when people say she is splash that is because of her side or?

Splash basically makes the horse look like it's been dipped into a paint can (white from the legs up, tail turning white from the ground up). Completely white faces are also caused by Splash - Splash tries to cover the eyes, Sabino avoids the eyes.
It costs $25 per test. Horse Tests

I see splash because her legs are mostly white and so is her belly and sides.

Frame can and does cause extreme side and belly white like seen on the op's horse. Frame likes to put color on the legs though. Being as there is no color on the op's horse's legs, I also say she is splash in this regard.

OP if you test for SB1, just wanted to let you know that even if she tests negative for it, it does not mean that she does not have some for of sabino that is not testable at this point in time.

Frame doesn't directly cause the extreme white, it just manipulates other pattern genes to create all that white. By itself, Frame doesn't do very much.
