Rocky Mountain Horse Mare

I'm an equine photographer so I thought i'd share some pictures i've taken at the farm where I work. This is one of their broodmares, Savannah Blue. She's a registered Rocky Mountain Horse by double registered Rock and Stroll. "Rocky" carries the Sabino gene and puts blue eyes on many of his offspring...Savannah was no exception! I ride Savannah more than any other horse on the farm and she's always fun. At almost 16.2 HH she's large for a Rocky and had an amazing rolling canter.

My breeding stock paint KMHSA mare, who has one blue eye and has thrown 3 foals with spots and blue eyes is a registered paint. Can you register her as a paint RMH?

No. Rocky Mountain Horses must be solid colors and DNA confirmed to have both a Rocky Mountain Horse sire and dam to be registered to my understanding.

From the registry....

Rocky Mountain Horses stand between 14.2 and 16 hands (58 and 64 inches, 147 and 163 cm) high. Any solid color is accepted by the registry, but a dark brown color called "chocolate" with a pale or flaxen mane and tail is preferred.[1] Chocolate is the result of the relatively rare silver dapple gene working on a black coat. Although rare, this gene has been found in over a dozen breeds, including the Rocky Mountain Horse.[2] Minimal white markings are accepted by the registry, although leg markings may not extend above the knee.
