A negative splash...

Seen this posted around facebook some, and on another forum. This horse tested negative for all three forms of splash ;)


I think this one would be a good case for saying, "yeah...most likely more forms of splash than just the three mutations that have been found"

They can't definitively say that they have found ALL the splash type genetics. Of coruse there are going to be horses that appear splash but do not test positive for their test (just like with SB1).

I don't know much about color genetics, but he is really interesting looking!

Oh...I know there has to be many many types of splash out there. I was discussing splash on another forum, and they were saying anything negative for splash had to be sabino. So, I found this little guy (and a host of others)...that truly look splash (homozygous at that) that tested negative...so now they are back pedaling :)

I'm wondering if some of these forms that are untestable as of yet are specific to certain breeds--like Sw2 is in Paints/QH.

Oh..and has anyone seen a tested Sw3 yet? I've only seen SW1/SW1, n/SW1, n/Sw2 and Sw1/Sw2 tested horses

The little fellow in the pic, is certainly frame. Many horses now and in many breeds, have tested negative for splash, even though it appeared they might be.

Not seeing frame on that one, sorry..

There are so many testing negative for the three mutations, because there are more than three mutations. Simple as that. Especially when you have horses marked like this that are coming up negative for the three available to test for.

Well although he doesn't have some of the characteristics associated with Frame, he does have a few.

Can you please tell us what in this picture makes you think frame?

Ditto...cause i'm seeing nothing frame about her. And it's a filly (now mare). Her parents are neat...the dam just has a couple of socks it looks like..AQHA..the sire is splashy/sabino looking...Homozygous splash at that on him it looks.

Even if that filly was frame (which I'm not seeing), she would have to have another pattern gene present as well. Frame simply does not put that much white on a horse by itself.
There's no way she's not carrying some form of Splash! I wonder how many more variations are yet to be discovered?
