    What patterns does she carry?

    Well, the tail hairs are pulled and the sample sent to UC Davis. It takes about 3 weeks through registered mail from Canada to get the results, so I thought I would ask what the rest of you thought in the mean time.

    This is my 3 month old filly, Elsa. Her sire was a Black Tobiano (Ee/nT/aa) and her dam is a solid Seal Brown/Bay (Ee/Aa). As far as I know, her sire was never tested for carrying anything other than frame (which he is n/n) since he's a pretty classic looking tobiano. I tested her dam and she is n/n for all pinto patterns, including frame.

    I've sent away to test for sabino, splash and to see if she is homozygous for black. I already know she'll be nT/Aa, and n/n for frame, so I didn't bother testing for those. She is getting white ticking throughout her spots, so I'm thinking she could carry sabino and I'd be curious to know if anything will show up in the test for her loud face white. Curious to hear your thoughts and I'll let you know the results as soon as they come in.

    The white ticking is most obvious throughout these two spots, but it is visible throughout all of them, and not just around the edges, but little white hairs throughout.

    I would agree with sabino as well

    Subbing, I have a 10yr old paint mare who just recently started to have ticking in her spots. She has always had lacing? (don't know if that's the right word) around the edges of them. She is not graying, no ticking on her head at all.

    The sabino test will almost 100% for sure come back negative - but this does not indicate that she does not have some form of sabino. The "sabino" test tests for a mutation of sabino only common in TWHs and minis at this stage. There is another test that tests for a different mutation of the sabino "family" - the W20 test, which may be more useful in this case to be honest.

    Interesting. Where would I be able to test for this? UC Davis only has tests for W 10 and W4 as far as I can see.

    The W20 test is available from the W20 projekt - W20 Test (Form / Formular) - projekt-w20-farbtests Webseite!

    That's really neat. It looks like they were only accepting samples until April 30, 2014 though.

    Well, the results are here. *drum roll* We have:

    SABINO 1 N/N

    What boring results! But also not terribly unexpected. And of course I know she's n/TO, A/a and frame n/n. Just goes to show you how different the spotting can be for just one type of colour pattern! (at least as far as science knows at this point.)
