I apparently was incorrect. He couldn't describe it so he said he was going to post a picture to our class website so we could look at it. I received an email saying that he can't really find any good pictures.
He describes it as "Basically, it is described as a "darker roaning" pattern that can show up within the white markings typical to the Tobiano genotype"
Now I just feel like he's just saying how tobiano's have their little roan patches but why would that be so hard to describe?
Anyway, does anyone who is more versed in these "bear paws" have any good pictures that I can send him?
