CLaPorte - My mare doesn't even have that much. One hind pastern white, a large blaze, and a very little, maybe quarter sized white spot near her elbow and she's N/O.
ETA: Lethal white isn't a disease they develop over time. It's just a mutation within the gene that causes a malformed digestive tract when homozygous. You have nothing to worry about with the colt. :)
I know what you're saying
As I stated, I know he's a frame but if I'm going to send samples in to be tested for splash, I may as well find out if he is OLWS postitive (homozygous) as well
I know how horses can test positive even with minimal markings. I just recently came across a site that showed a solid black stallion with only white stockings that sired a maximum frame when crossed with a mare marked the same way! I also came across another breeder's site that has a minimal mare for sale that tested positive for LWO (homozygous).
