    Seeing as there is only one isolated sabino gene mapped, it remains unclear of how many do exist and what the criteria for each one would be. And it has been theorized that all of the "normal" white markings are caused by some form of sabino, which, if that were true, the majority of all horses would be sabinos.

    Rabicano just doesn't have a lot of research done to it, so it could be a mutation of some sort, or it actually could be its own gene. Either way, it does have its own criteria and a name for that pattern.

    Years ago a friend of mine had an Arab that was rabicano (skunk tail for sure) but I don't recall him having any other white markings. Or certainly not any high white markings or large face markings. He was very minimally marked. So I don't think sabino and rabicano necessarily go together. But I know nothing about genetics. I don't have a photo of the horse either. But he was a bay registered Arabian with a skunk tail and little to no other white on him.
