Wondering about her markings.

I know she's a flaxen chestnut, but I was wondering about the roaning on her blaze and the spots on her back legs? Technical terms.. if they have any? I don't know much about markings except the common ones.

Thanks!

The roaning is just extra white hair around her marking, probably from the sabino. Sabino is also causing her face white to go the whole length of the face, and be so even, as well as the jagged socks on her back legs. She probably has frame too, which is causing the face white to spread above the eyes. The little spots on her skin are mottles that are perfectly normal.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Like I said I'm not knowledgeable about markings/colors, but frame and sabino are Paint horse terms, correct?

they are pinto terms yes, frame and sabino describe pinto patterns, and your girl is showing these pinto patterns, in a very minimal expression.

Oh, ok. Lol. So she's a pinto flaxen chestnut? Or just a flaxen chestnut with minimal pinto markings?

TECHNICALLY yes she is a pinto. But it's just easier to call her a flaxen chesnut, because when you say pinto people will be confused, and then you end up like me, where I am explaining each gene to someone and they just look dumb founded haha

But yes if you wanted people to know she was a pinto i'd call her a flaxen chesnut with minimal pinto expression.

Generally, most horses with white markings will have some kind of white modifier gene (IE pinto gene) but people wont call them pinto because its not enough white to be considered a pinto horse.

Ok. Lol. I was just asking because I know someone will think she is old because of the roaning on her blaze, and I want to able to explain to them that it is just her markings. Since she isn't registered I know I'll get asked. :p

I wouldn't guess frame on her honestly...just sabino which is responsible for a lot of white markings on faces and legs.

Unless she has a parent who was a frame overo paint horse, she cannot have the gene

If she does have a frame overo parent (and paint breeders generally know if their horses being bred are frame overo due to the fact that 2 frame overo horses have the chance of producing a lethal white foal), then you can easily have her color tested for the frame gene by uc davis

Then again she just might have red (strawberry) roan in her blood line and nothing to do with paint or pinto markings.

I've had that type of roan markings in my Quarter-Morgan, and my Appy that I had when I was younger and neither had any paint or pinto in them.
