She couldn't make up her mind!

What people don't realize is that Arabians come in some COOL colors. Some purebreds (egyptian bred horses) can resemble pintos, roans, palominos, etc. They don't have the color genes but they mimic those colors. =]

They do have the colour genes. Just not the ones that people first think of when they think of pinto. Arabians don't have tobiano and frame, however, they do have sabino, splash, rabicano and dominant white. The genes are there, they have just been selectively avoided until very recently. So while Arabians have these white patterning genes, they also have white suppression genes as well, which are prolific through the bloodlines.

I own several.sabino and rabicano Arabians, as well as a Fire And Ice daughter, who resembles the palamino coliur. I just have yet to add one of these guys! LOL

I wonder if the old saying works for this as well, or juat shoulder marks.

I'm sorry but the first thing that came to mind when I saw the mare from the OP was an old beater car that has been hacked together... y'know the ones with a different color fender or hood than the rest of the car?
