Kiger/pinto 100 dollar mare.

Never had a paint before......VERY doughtful she will ever be bred while i own her due to some conformation faults, but I have some hypothetical questions.......she has distinct differences between the white and dun coloring anywhere it meets (no white hairs blending with the dun at the edges) except in one spot on her chest/shoulder area on the right hand side. there, for about 8 inches across, and 5 inches deep the white hairs mix with the dun coloring. looks very similar to the edges of what i've seen referred to as "splash overo" except it seems to go deeper into the dun coloring than just the edge. My main question is that I was wondering if the white mixed spot is an indicator of being a possible OLWS carrier. I have posted some pics but I.m not sure you can even see the spot I'm talking about.....first pic is of the right hand side with area of interest on the low right hand shoulder/chest area, second pic is of regular coloring on other side, butt pic is proof of dun coloring?

She is a bay dun. The shoulder roaning is caused by tobiano. it tends to do that in random spots (my tobi mare has one on her thigh). It is not an indication of splash or frame. She may or may not be carrying frame, and unless she is breeding stock (I wouldn't IMO) I wouldn't even bother testing for it as it does not cause any issues.

Agree with ND on this one. For what it's worth, I think she is carrying frame. The way that white goes along her barrel from her ribs to her shoulder says it to me, as does the fact her white is so front heavy. I would expect more white on her back legs if she was just tobiano, and frame is the only thing that would restrict it to that extent.

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.

Thanks, I think I will have her tested, she won't be bred while she is with me, but when she is sold, I want documentation on why she SHOULDN'T be bred. Frame is an indicator of the OLWS gene correct?

Yes. Frame is another name for OLWS. It's fine if she has it. It doesn't hurt anything to be heterozygous (one copy) frame/OLWS.
