Hard to see his conformation, but he looks like a generally nice workmanlike sort of horse.

Has he actually been DNA tested as being homozygous for something? What is he homozygous for?

Can you share a link to their site? (Please PM it to me if you don't want to post it)

I think the ad was a few months old, because i can't find it now lol. Luckily i wrote down their number for later just incase he he. They'll prolly put another up soon so i'll keep an eye out.
I havent contacted for a site though. It was a rather small ad but there were 3; this guy, another Paint & a buckskin. It said the bucksin carried the "color" gene while the colored stud was homozygous.
Thinking back they could have been refering to the Paint but if this pintaloosa guy had a homozygous paint parent would that make him homozygous for a patter as well (paint or other)?

To be homozygous he has to have received a copy of the gene from both his sire and dam. So if they are both tobiano, but both heterozygous, then he has a 50% chance to be homozygous. Same goes for the black, roan and appy parts of him :)

I thought that if both parents were Tobiano then the resulting foal would be homozygous but if one parent was a solid then the foal wouldn't be... i guess you learn something new everyday!

In most circumstances testing is the only way to tell if a horse is homozygous for anything, except chestnut horses, which are always homozygous for red, and horses with cream, which displays differently depending on heterozygous and homozygous. In this case, even if one parent is solid, it should still be tested for frame etc. All the white patterns can be carried minimally, with a sock or a star the only indicator, or even a solid horse with no white.

Based on his phenotype (having numerous app spots) he would not be homozygous for LP. The roaning I see looks like LP roaning, which is not thought to be seperate from LP, but something that occurs along with LP unless suppressed.

Honestly he'd Be a right nice gelding, but He's not so great for a stallion.

You know, I am the first person that would say something like this. But then I would back it up with reasons. It's just plain rude to say stuff like that without justifying it. Please, enlighten us, oh knowledgeable one. Why would you geld and not keep this one?

He's cute! I love pintolosas (or however you spell that), so unusual!
