Wow I am in ND how are you liking this wonderful -45* weather? My horses do not seem to mind we did square bales so they have been inside the barn so far but next week are getting round bales and surprise they get to eat outside now...lol

IMO The horse isn't "tovero" at all, but rather Homozygous Splash White.

Can someone post the OP's pics here? My phone wont let me view her album, and he sounds a lot like my guy so was curious. Thanks!

Nope 100& sure that is his sire and he also sired 3 other foals 2 were identical to blue and one was a smokey buckskin filly .....

I had a dna done on the sire/dam and blue he is a double dilute but I couldn't get an answer as to why he does this color change he isn't a grulla at all and is definitely a dunskin...was told he was a tovero dunskin according to his dna his dam's sire was a buttermilk buckskin and dam was a chocolate point dun like kota just alot darker. The sire tested out as a double dilute as well and with him being a warmblood they told me that he is a carrier of the dilute gene as well...i know nothing of the breeding stuff so I was just going on by what was told to me from the bloodwork done.

She was registered as a grey (Misty is 3/4 Nokota and 1/4 Welsh), although her Nokota daddy was a red roan .... I think. I don't have her papers in front of me, but if my memory serves me correct. Her mamma (who we had for about 10 years) was a dark dappled chestnut, 1/2 Nokota and 1/2 Welsh. I am not a color expert so I'm probably not describing that right.

This is a very old photo, when Misty (the grey in question) was a foal. Her white as a baby is pretty close to what she looked like the spring, with darker roots of course. Her mamma is the dark one next to her on the left of the photo.

The most recent photo I have was the first photo I posted. It was from August 24, 2011 and we sold her shortly after that at the ripe ol' age of 18 to a family with 8 kids that were going to ride her lots! (and learn lots from her)

This one is from the same day, just a different photo.

Can you post a copy of the DNA test?

Sire is not a double dilute.

Well I am just to the south of you in Mandan.

I'm liking this week in the 30's much better than last week's nastiness cold, but that's what we get for living here.

And my horses are outside 24/7 as well. They've got windbreak, free-choice hay, pasture access, and water. They handle it fine.
