Well - Im over the shock now lol :p

Haven't yet emailed USD, as I have only just got in the door & have yet to have anything to eat or drink today (its 5:10pm here) - so that's my next port of call now my babies have been taken care of ;)

I'll email them later tonight & ask if either retesting or adding her to the group of looks Splash horses, but hast tested positive, is the best idea - to me because she's not Frame (thank god lol), she HAS to be Splash - if she didn't have blue eyes, I probably wouldn't be so darn convinced she was Splash of some type.

Cynder has nothing other than the narrow halo/lacing edging her patches - this is common on Tobianos (I'm told), she doesn't have any roaning, roaning like your typical Sabino or Rabicano bleeding into in coloured areas- certainly none on either flank patch, nor the one chocolate spot on top of her quarters or on her shield.
The photos may be deceiving if it looks like there is roaning anywhere, as she is a Smoky Brown (is that the turn now being used for Seal Brown + Cream now??) & the photos were taken during Autumn when she was changing colour hues from lighter to darker for winter :) .

She does have a chin/lip spot tho

I'm looking at putting her in foal to the Lion Prince (he's quite a new import & is HZ Black & Tobiano, as well as a Splash of some kind (he hasnt been tested for it but he too has 2 stunningly bright blue eyes!) SO maybe her foal will turn out HZ unknown Splash yet lol).

I'm putting my Greying, Brown Roan to Prince (or Cracker Jack, Bay also Tobiano, Splash (again not tested, but has bright Blue eyes + I know most the horses in Jacks background all have bright blue eyes, as does his sire & dam!) this yr, so will be interesting to see what she throws colour/pattern wise ;)
I have my fingers & toes crossed for a Seal Brown, Roan, Tobiano, Splash with Blue eyes lol :p

I would use "smoky brown" to refer to a double dilute on a brown base. I usually say "brown buckskin" but most people will understand that, or "brownskin".

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I was thinking over the Brown terms the other day- I thinking
Brown= Seal Brown.
Brown + Cream= Smoky Brown (since they tend to have exaggerated tan appearance like Smoky blacks)
Brown + 2cream = Tawny or something along those lines as it'd make life easier.

Most people here that know about Brown use Seal then smoky as smoky brown implies a buckskin looking horse- esp given we already have Smoky Blacks & a double dilute never looks 'brown' lol

From What I have Researched They Believe That there are still Undiscorved Types Of Splash Patterns.

Well Cynder, her Sire & Dam are all being entered into the White spotting research- Yay! :)
The breeder also has Cynder's full sibling due this season- will be interesting to see what pattern that foal has ;)
