Rabicano and Roan are completely different. I have several sabinos that are just sabinos, and I have a few sabinos/rabicanos.
Connected? Hard to say. Why would one show up without the other then? I've seen a lot of rabicanos without any sabino markings, and vice versa. I think it's luck of the genetic draw. I don't think they go hand in hand.

They have isolated both Roan and Sabino 1, and they are both mutations of the same gene.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Re the orange. Frame does cause face white. Spice, a member's horse on here, is a great example. Her only white is her face white, and she is frame positive. The only clue was in her face white - frame likes white to spread horizontally, including when it is on the face, especially above the eyes. I suggested her owner test her, and it turned out she was positive.

As another thought, I have a feeling that when they isolate rabicano, it too will be a KIT locus mutation. It too has the similar feel to it that the other KITs share.

I agree with this as well. The KIT locus is pretty neat the different genes on it can cause little white markings to an almost completely white horse like my sorrel DW paint Pepper. White patterns are so fun and unpredictable.

So they are no longer the same gene. They don't have the same effects either. I don't see how anyone could confuse the two.

They are not the same gene, but they ARE related. Just like bay and brown are related. They DO have similar expression, while not the same expression, but close enough to see similarities.

In no way am I saying they do the same thing, so please don't imply that.
