Just for fun, discuss this pattern.

I saw this horse for sale on craigslist, who wants to take a stab as to the paint pattern he is showing? I would love to hear what everyone says!

P.S. His name is Domino, which is pretty adorable.

Dominant white IMO. It has that flaky look that I associate with DW.

I would agree with Chiilaa here. I haven't seen dominant white on horses other than completely white, but it doesn't look like any pinto pattern I've seen and it doesn't really match up with any leopard pattern either.

These horses are all DW and not entirely white. These are both from the Puchilingui line.

I am actually getting more of a tobiano/sabino/splash feel more than DW.

MelissaAnn, can you tell us what breed he is? And what his breeding is if possible?

interesting, I would have guessed sabino on the top and splash on the bottom. I guess Dominate white isn't very common?

He is a missouri foxtrotter. The ad did not mention his parents or even his special color. Because Chilla brought up dominate white, I googled it, and was told the Sabino1 allele has been found in foxtrotters, while DW did not mention foxtrotters. But who knows, he could be a mix of many things, craigslist is full of unreliable people.

Edit: Here is a link to the ad! He has a very interesting history.

Sabino, roan, dominant white and tobiano are all mutations of the same chromosome. They are all KIT mutations, and KIT loves to mutate more. Currently there are at least 2 different types of sabino, and 12 types of DW thought to exist, with tests available for sabino 1, and 5 strains of DW.

I see Dominant White as well.
