    So can a Quarter Horse be any colour? Including pinto and appy? And when I say Any Colour, I mean ANY colour possible?

    If the genes are present in the breed then yes a horse can have any combination of those genes.

    Not tobiano- I think since the QH registry excluded horses with too much white tobiano managed to be kept out. Tobiano can express minimally, but it usually doesn't. So even if a minimal tobiano was registered when the registry started any offspring who got the gene and expressed it were likely not allowed to register, thus the gene was bred out (if it was ever present to begin with)

    Am I incorrect in thinking a black horse is still a black horse if they have a sock or two? A blaze? Some posters here are saying "true blacks" don't have a single speck of white? No way...genetically if a horse is black, it's black. The white would come from something like frame or splash right?

    If my thinking is correct, that a black horse can infact have white markings and still be considered black, then no it's not rare in my eyes. Not as common in my neighborhood as a sorrel but not as rare as you make it seem. My vote for rare would be the champagne, pearl, perlino types but they're popping up more and more online.

    Again, the OP asked for "uncommon" and phenotypical Frame, Splash, DW, and LP are not the norm for QHs, thus uncommon. Nowhere did I mention Sabino, so I'm not sure how that worked its way into the conversation.

    Just search for QHs for sale on a site like dreamhorse. I just did and out of the first 120 or so, I saw maybe 3 horses who might have been minimal splash or frame horses. And they were not loudly marked pintos... so your average QH owner probably wouldn't even realize they could be. And DW... well, as far as I know, the only QH line that carries it is the GQ Santana line. Any others would have to be from one of the TB lines... but I haven't heard of any testing positive tor them. And LP is almost unheard of. So, they are out there, but they certainly aren't common.

    Yes, Zeke, the white markings on a horse don't change the fact that the base color is black.
