    Went to that color calculator website that someone posted on these forums to figure out what the foal might be based strictly on both parents being Tobi's... not taking into consideration any other white patterning at all and this is what it gave me:

    Offspring Color Probability

    21.88% - Buckskin Tobiano
    12.50% - Palomino Tobiano
    10.94% - Bay Tobiano
    10.94% - Perlino Tobiano
    7.29% - Buckskin
    6.25% - Cremello Tobiano
    6.25% - Chestnut Tobiano
    4.17% - Palomino
    3.65% - Perlino
    3.65% - Bay
    3.13% - Smoky Black Tobiano
    2.08% - Chestnut
    2.08% - Cremello
    1.56% - Smoky Cream Tobiano
    1.56% - Black Tobiano
    1.04% - Smoky Black
    0.52% - Black
    0.52% - Smoky Cream

    Now THAT'S quite the selection eh??? LOL.. I'd still really like to know what other possible white patterns they might have besides tobiano anyways.. I'm almost postive they both have something else besides tobi.

    Anywho.. here's the other pics of Sahara and Cody.. now remember, they aren't the greatest pics but there all I got sent from the lady who owns them.

    I still think she's adorable!! :) Funny thing is when I used the color calculator a while back I got a huge list of possibilities as well. Lol. You could get just about anything ;)

    Thanks :) The more I look at her the more I like her... I've got quite a bit to look forward to over the next little while... first we're going to look at this mare and take her for a "test drive" .. then, if everything works out and we all like each other we'll be bringing her home... then my other two babies should be delivered by the end of the month! They're the one's in my avatar... then we got the foal to look forward to in August!... quite the year LOL.

    I know I commented about disliking her at first, but I've realized she's very cute after you posted those last few pictures. I personally hope the baby looks just like mom; she has very nice color. I like my saddle horses flashy. Oh, HF, forgive me for admitting I like my horses pretty!

    Also, you commented about registering her as an SSH: if she gaits and has spots, she can be registered. However, I wouldn't bother with it unless you plan on showing her or re-selling her.

    I remember you making that comment on my other post.. I'm glad the photos I posted changed your mind though Although that wasn't a problem to me because you're entitled to not like a horse for whatever reason I know there's some horses out there that people say are "pretty" but I don't see it.. to each his or her own I guess eh? LOL.. anyways... enough of my mindless babbling hehe.. thanks for commenting and I also hope the baby looks like her too!

    ETA: I don't think I'm going to bother registering her as I'm not planning on showing her or the baby as I'm not into showing... nor am I planning on ever breeding her again so she can just be my "unknown" baby LOL

    Making a lot of plans, eh? You seem to have your mind made up you're buying her. Fallen in love? :)

    Tell us about the test ride and how everything goes. Maybe take a video? I want to see how well she gaits.

    Hi guys I am new to this site and by the looks of the mare she looks to have the Sabino gene.. With her jagged socks and you say she has white hairs in odd places .. That is just my two cents lol but I do know that they are both VERY nice and I would take either one :) I hope you get her and enjoy that baby:)

    I kinda know what you mean by breeding whatever the heck people want and stuff, but what is so wrong with an unregistered horse. My horses is full blood QH and he isn't registered. Its just something that the owner never did I guess.
    Anyways. I think they are both lovely horses and she is going to throw and adorable baby. You will have to keep us updated.

    There is nothing wrong with an unregistered horse. I don't think that anyone that has a problem with people breeding actually has a problem with unregistered horses.

    A registered horse is traceable. If you buy a grade, you have to rely on the word of the seller to give you any clue as to the horse's history. They could tell you that the horse is pure but not registered, that the horse's dam won the Triple Crown, whatever they want. Most people are honest, but there are people who are not. Having papers means that even the less than honest people can't lie too badly about the horse.

    A papered horse is a far more attractive buy for a lot of people. Not saying all people, for sure there are lots of people who prefer grades. I myself have only owned papered horses, but that is because all I have owned are OTTB's which have to be registered. A horse with papers will usually sell for more than a grade that has similar qualities.
