Now there is Doc Bar who has more white but past that there is very little with in 3 generations.

    I agree that with the lack of testing it is hard to say but with the exception of splash she has been tested for every other pattern that has a test and is neg for all.
    Yeah, that's like the old King Ranch horses where they had an aversion to white. When you have generation after generation after generation of no white, it is a reasonably safe assumption any white has been bred out - test or no test, although a test would of course provide the definitive answer...

    Face that is what I am getting at. She has been tested for everything available up to Splash which I am not going to spend the money to do on her. If you look back at her pedigree bottom side non of the horses have any white. Top side you have to go back 3 generations to Doc Bar to find any white past a very small star.

    My understanding is there is a strong belief that many types of Donkeys have a very strong white repression gene... Which is why there are few pinto Mules with loud body white, even when the donkey is bred to a homozygous pinto horse. (there are some, so obviously not all Donkeys are carriers)

    Following that thought it is suspected that some breeds of horses also have something similar.
