Good start - agree with comments about look and feel. The wording under silver genetic is a little confusing. You state that it does not show on chestnut but it does not show on the red bay base color either. It might be easier if you explain that the color genetic shows only on black (not on red chestnut or bay). A base color of black will be dulited (lighted( to brown and base color of black on mane/tail will be dulited to sliver (flaxen). Note on the bay picture, that red body base color is not dulited, but the normally black points (i.e. Lower legs) are dulited to brown + normally black mane/tail is dulited to silver.

A daunting task to keep it correct but yet simple. Thanks for sharing.

The ad mentions nothing about testing for sabino. Again, there is no Sb1, the only testeable sabino, in TBs. And that is not what sabino presents as, but IS how splash presents ;)

Thanks goforgait and CheyAut, I have another sabino picture which looks more true, the horse is a clydesdale, I wanted all the pics to be paints or similar so they can be compared with similar confo. If you know what I mean, but I spose it doesnt matter.

Thanks for you input, I needed it!

Chestnuts have only red pigment showing all over the body. The Red Factor is caused The Extension gene. A red base coat is caused by a recessive gene (ee) and only a red pigment is detected in these horses. They can produce black foals. (red)

* They CAN'T produce black foals. A black based horse can produce a chestnut, a chestnut cannot produce a black based foal unless bred to a black based horse.

Buttermilk Dun. A paler dun with 'frosting' in the mane and tail. This Dun horse modestly shows off his dorsel stripe (the dark line along his spine), this distinguishes the dun from a buckskin easily without DNA testing.

* Buckskin horses can often have dorsel stripes and even zebra striping if counter shading is present. Although it's quite LIKELY the horse is dun, there is no tried and true way to tell a dun from a buckskin unless you know the parents genetics or DNA type.

Overo- this is a bay overo

* This is very misleading as I said because the filly you have pictured IS a frame overo. The term "overo" can be confusing to people because the word describes three distinct patterns - all of which you have described already. I would remove her picture or re-label her as also being frame overo. You may also want to mention on your Lethal White Foal picture that it is breeding two horses with the frame overo gene that can produce a lethal white foal.

Roan is a gene that causes white and coloured hair to be distributed evenly across the coat of the horse. A True Roan horse will be roan at birth but some horses do 'roan out' as they age.

* As CheyAut said, this is still incorrect. Roan horses do NOT change color - one the foal coat sheds out, they will remain that color for the rest of their lives. They may shift in shade as some horses do from season to season, but they will never get progressively "more roan" as they age. If a horse is "roaining out" it's because it's grey and not roan.[/FONT]

I know a genetically black stallion who is now roaning our because he is 24. That's is what I mean by that

He's probably going gray from age. My bay mare is "going gray" but it's not the gray gene (sorry MM or CheyAut if I'm wrong here, feel free to correct me) that's causing it or the roan gene. She's just old..

Yes that what it is, it is not the roan or grey gene it is just ageing :)

Then don't call it roaning cause it's not? That just confuses people.

Not me

Ill change the wording, what I was trying to do was distinguish true roan from aging roan (we will call it)
