One close to home!!
 
One day I was on Kijiji, and I found a horse with quite possibly the rarest coat colour on the planet for sale in Canada.... They want $8,000 for her. Here is the ad
STUNNING WHITE Dual reg JC and APHA TB weanling filly - Ottawa Livestock For Sale - Kijiji Ottawa

I don't known if I would call Dominant White the rarest coat color/pattern on the planet. Perhaps to be so completely white is a bit rare, but a lot of others that are "more rare"! I really don't like Dominant Whites at all, the pink skin and black eyes are weird. Give me blue or green eyes on my white!

Haha I do agree with the eye colour thing. but I do know AQHA released the coat colour percentages of horses registered to them in 2010, ans there's at least 4 million in their registry now... There was approximately 28% sorrels, but for whites it was 0%

AQHA is not APHA...it would be quite a shock to see a dominant white Quarterhorse...not so much a surprise with a Paint...

That's true... Never thought of that. But actually if i can ill check this filly's lines, because it says shes also TB, and there's a line of thoroughbreds with dominant white that i know of.
But to prove it for this filly she'd need a test

There are 11 different KNOWN strains of DW. Four of these are within the TBs, and I believe the JC has a "white" option. There is one strain of DW in QHs, and they don't always present as entirely white. Also, the AQHA is really, really bad when it comes to correct colours on registrations, so that is the probable reason for there not being any registered.

this is her sire. he's pure TB, and his parents are coloured, but his sire's a sabino, and the filly's sire is a maximally white sabino.
...It says he's in canada... I'd like to know where exactly though because he's nice looking and i wouldnt mind breeding my mare to him. that may be the only way to prove he actually passes white too... Cuz my mare's a grulla nokota with a grey gene..... so if the foal would come out white, then maybe..
I like genetics, just saying, lol

First off, his sire is mistakenly listed as sabino, but he isn't. He is DW also.

Secondly - I wouldn't use a grey mare to test breed for colour lmao.

Nokotaheaven 09-21-2012 09:03 PM

okay.
and lol why not?
aha my logical thinking is... i dont know if her grey is dominant, so if the sire's white is dominant, then it should show up over grey lol. but then again, im not that smart xD
