Yes that means he carries Frame.

Of these four horses, only one is frame positive. Can you tell me which one?

ETA: I have picked these pictures based on claims they have all been tested.

Well, I think I have seen the photo of the black mini before and remember he is frame, so that's cheating I guess.

If I had never seen that particular photo before, I would guess #4 (due to bald face and blue eyes).

BUT, knowing what I do now, these are my guesses

#1 sabino
#2 sabino (or dominant white?)
#3 frame
#4 splash white

Well, none of them look frame to me. Either Sabino or Splash so I'm going to guess the black mini carries frame.

You are both right. The mini is the one with frame. The only give-away is his blue eyes. The chestnut at the top is probably sabino (given that the test for sabino is currently worse than useless), the thoroughbred is dominant white, and the one at the bottom is probably splash (which there is a test for now yay!).

My point is, that some people who didn't know what they were looking at, would see non-tobiano markings, and assume they are frame. Especially the chestnut - the give-away with her is her high leg white. The phenotype of frame is next to useless for determining if the horse carries frame, as you can see with the mini stallion. He has no white on him at all, but thankfully, he was tested by a responsible breeder.

Which is why we should always test for frame! Can't always go by what you see.

That was really educational, thank you!!! I used to be a paint whiz when I was younger, but they hadn't figured out all that mess yet, lol!
