    Kind of looks to me like there was trying to be a sock there, but the mare has a white suppression gene which isn't quite wiping it out. Kind of the same idea when a horse has ermine spots on a sock.
    I think you are 100% correct

    I will make SURE to post a pic in this thread as soon as I can get one tomorrow!

    That's a sign of sabino.

    That would be really cool...if one day I decided to breed her for some reason (once again I will state that this is not likely).

    Horses can be tested for this gene, correct? Does anyone have any more information regarding that?

    Edited to add...her Dam has gr/rn next to her name in the pedigree...does this stand for gray/roan? Maybe her Dam was roan? Unfortunately I have no pictures of her...

    It does stand for gray/roan, but I'm guessing your horse is very minimum sabino if anything. The only true roans in TB appear to come from the brindle stallion Catch a Bird; the others are rabicano or sabino.

    Testing is available for colors, but I'm sure if it would be worth it.

    My TB has a lot of white hairs throughout his body and seems to be getting more. I've wondered if he may be roaning out or something? Very interesting thread.

    There is a teat for ONE of the sabino genes, but your horse would likely test negative for that one. Doesn't/ ean she's not sabino. IMO, that test is a waste of money since a negative result doesn't mean not sabino.

    Thanks for the advice...

    I would just be curious, so not really worth it for me

    Just for kicks, I will post her pedigree. Her dam and granddam were both registered gr/ro...

    He's 3, and they are mostly on his barrel, hindquarters and neck. I've only owned him for 5 months but I've noticed more and more since I bought him.

    Here is a picture that shows it fairly well.
