So I worked with a Saddlebred a few years ago that didn't have a very typical facial marking. He had a blaze but he also had a white spot on his chin. It wasn't a very small one either. It was roughly an inch and a half in size. What would you call it? Is there a correct term for this kind of marking? And is it possible for a horse to have LP and paint markings?
Here's a picture of the spot. And no it wasn't connected to his blaze.
White lip I believe. I have a paint mare who has a white lip and that's what it says on her papers. And saddlebreds can come as pintos. I have one. So its not impossible that a saddlebred has a paint marking such as a white lip. Hope that helped.
I knew Saddlebreds could be pinto. I just didn't think he had an paint in him. But he could have some because I don't know much about his past, he was an auction pick-up. He just didn't appear to have any paint in him. He looks like a pure Saddlebred.
Don't critique his conformation they're just reference photos. Not too long after we picked him up.
Disclaimer: I do know that he is too skinny, but he would not gain weight. We had him out in the pasture all day, and he had access to hay all day and got grain three times a day. He was regularly wormed. He just wouldn't put on weight.
