Tobiano and what else?

I know she is a tobiano, but what other white patterns does she look like she carries/shows? Thanks





^^ I am giving her a bath so she is very wet (ignore me, my sister, daughter and a curly haired niece ) so you can see the skin color changes in her markings.


So, do you think she is also a sabino, splash or both sabino and splash?

Gorgeous mare!!
I would guess at splash, because of all the white on her legs and her face but the other genetic experts will be able to give a more accurate opinion ;)

Almost forgot to ask. Does anyone know about the black separating her stockings from her hooves? She only has one partial light hoof (you can see it when I am washing her) and all her other feet are completely black with no streaks of lighter color coming in. What is causing this?

I think she is just tobiano. My horse has the black markings on the coronet band too. Never knew why it was, though.

Sunny those are called ermine spots. They are thought to be caused by a white suppressing gene.

I would say she is Tobiano, Sabino and Splash.

Thank you! I do think it is kinda odd that she would have ermine spots spread so evenly around her coronet band on three legs

I agree with Nd: Tobiano and both splash and sabino.

The black spots above the hoof are called ermine spots, a very common trait on tobis.
