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

Yes. She immediately reminded me of several Mini Frame horses, I have seen, marked similarly.

I thought that horses with frame don't have white on their legs?

Some frame horses have one or more dark legs, but white legs are just as often found on frame.
Here is just one tested frame Miniature.

How cool! I would say splash for sure just by apperence. I don't know all that much about genetics, but still interesting.

Just for the record:



The horse shown is about as "classic" splashed white as it gets. VERY interesting, looks like we're wandering down much the same path as sabino - you KNOW they've got it but the tests like to make you a liar! Loving that we're coming out with more and more tests!

That horse is most certainly also carrying Splash.
He also has those crisp edges around his white markings, whereas that filly does not.

The new Splash test has been very surprising. Tons of Minis have now been tested (with pictures shown on our forum) and many have tested negative for all three, when the phenotype would have told us otherwise. I am quite sure in the future, more than the present three will be mapped and made available. I hope it is not quite so many as in Sabino, however, or the cost of testing will become prohibitive.

Feathered Feet--the mini you posted a pic of DOES look frame in addition to splash...it also has some coloration in places the mare in the OP I posted does not--mainly the chest and lower neck...

The mare I posted has no "markers" visually for frame that I'm seeing. Her sire is N/N for frame and I asked about the dam--who is AQHA and doesn't "look" frame or come from known frame lines, but it could be hiding. If they reply back to me on either this mare I posted or the dams frame status, I will let you know :)

I did read on another genetics forum that if a horse phenotypically appears to have splash but tests negative, UC Davis is requesting owners to send in more information/hairs for further study.

I found a horse for sale that I really want who's splash. I want to test him haha
