    What paint pattern is my mare??

    I have a 12 year old mare that is not registered and has unknown parents, but have always assumed she is a tobiano black and white, but I ran genetic testing and her tests came back negative, not a carrier at all! (nn for tobiano) So question for all the paint horse coat pattern experts out there, any suggestions as to what she may be? Maybe an overo but her face is normal markings and no blue eyes. She is a paint warmblood cross, unsure exactly what the warmblood entails, so that is a mystery. But I would like to breed her but hoping to get a pinto coat foal too. Some input would be greatly appreciated.

    Frame is almost certainly present in this mare, which means before you breed her, you need to test her for Lethal White Overo.

    I suspect she has splashed white as well, there is a test available for this too.

    I just added the lethal white today, so pending for now. Thanks for the input!

    Did you test her through UC Davis for tobiano?

    It strikes me as odd that she would test negative, especially with those spots on her flank being where they are and how round they are shaped. Anomalies do happen, but I would have said tobiano in the mix because of that alone (despite other traits that would normally be tobiano-related).

    My guess would be frame as well, possibly along with some sabino to account for the jagged edges

    No I used AnimalGenetics.us. She came back as a lethal white overo hetero, so she does carry the gene. My thoughts were to breed her with a friesian, aiming for a sane minded sport horse. But still undecided. Maybe I should check with uc davis to double check the tobiano at least? Also I want to add the pic of the results but unsure how.

    I would consider it. It's not a lethal gene or anything; I'm just curious about it. It would be up to you entirely.

    Do you have a digital copy of the results? If not, scan it or take a picture of it and then add it the same way you added the first picture.

    I think since I'm using my phone I'm having issues with posting pics, but if you click on my "horses" tab and look at lily I did figure out how to add the results to her photos.

    I just want to say that I think she is really cool looking. I like paints, but she is super neat looking.

    I don't know anything about genetics, though. Be careful breeding her if she has lethal white- that's all I know.
