A lot of people who have done a fair bit of research, and others like me who feed on their research, are leaning towards Clydesdales being dominant white rather than sabino. The markings are just too crisp and flaky. That's the only way I can describe it - dominant white markings are crisp and flaky lol.
There are definitely different types of sabino though. There are plenty of horse that have tested negative for sabino 1 but still display sabino markings. Sabino 1 seems to be only in certain breeds (I can't name them off the top of my head, will come back to this thread later today).
