Arabians and Splash
 
Im breeding my stallion to a daughter of Khartoon Khlassic in April and while reading some posts in here came upon Macabre's long lost thread on WA Outrageous (who is a full brother to the mare I'm breeding to). A lot of the thread touched on the suspicion of whether or not Arabians carried only the sabino gene or the splash as well. With UC Davis now offering the test for splash has anyone caught wind of any results on Arabians yet?

I personally haven't heard anything, but the test literally just came available publicly.

There is no doubt at all in my mind that Arabians will test for splash. However, I haven't seen any test results, or a published paper yet. When either comes out, then we will know more :-)

I know a lot of members in the Arabian community have been adamant that they do not carry splash - it'll be interesting to see what the tests say.

I'll be interested to find out if the Arabians carry the splash gene that's tested for in the test. The Sabino gene they carry won't test, so for those who say Arabians do not carry Splash and/or Frame, I always ask just how sure they are.

Dream catcher - thats something else I was thinking. I do think Arabians carry a form of splash however I don't think it's the same as you see in paints and quarter horses with the belly high whites and bald faces. I'm thinking it's their own version of the gene because, let's face it, Arabians just can't help but be different :)

LOL! Ain't that the truth. I'll be interested to find out though, for sure.

Dreamcatcher - the test has three different mutations identified, which is interesting. One of them is sure to catch Arabians, but as I said, early days. Two of the mutations are also suspected lethal when homozygous, but having not seen the paper yet, I am assuming they are aborted just after conception.

Can we start by testing this theory with this arabian stallion I have found on horseclicks??

1 of 5 in the world! blue eyed black splash sabino purebred Arab - Moonlight Money Maker

Any questions if he fits the splash pattern description? LOL

Well, he certainly violates just about every major fault in the breed standard, that's for sure!
