How many different patterns can a horse inherit? For instance, I've heard some described as having frame, splash, & sabino for example. Can't they only carry 2 pattern genes? Can 1 gene produce more than 1 pattern?
I have a gelding homozygous for tobiano, dna tested and while he was still a stallion he sired 4 spotted foals out of solid mares, but I would guess based on what I've learned here that he has more patterns than just tobi, but if that's the case how could he be homozygous?
Pics so you can see what I'm talking about.
Sorry I can't find a good picture of his left side on the computer. One of these days I gotta learn how to scan There'll be another one you can see a little better on his foal pictures.
Some of his offspring:
