No, because even red based horses have black skin where they do not have white markings.

He absolutely with out a doubt isn't black both parents are sorrel. Pepper is actually registered as a sorrel Overo. Peppers father was actually gelded because he kept producing max sabino's and they are a ranch the sells loud colored paints. He father is gorgeousa loud sorrel Overo sabino paint. And mom is a sorrel tobiano paint if I remember right I could be wrong. I know for sure both are sorrel.

Me too I'm always learning. I have a biology degree and I love genetics.
Horse genetics are very fascinating.

ALL horses are dark skinned unless they have a white marking, then the skin where that white marking is is white.

Where the mottling is is where the red hairs are or were.
