Trabag - Manchado Chestnut Arabian
Going though old photo's and thought I'd get a few opinions from the colour guru's.
This is a purebred Arabian mare, foaled 1946. She never passed this colour onto any of her foals.
So far it's only appeared in horses from Argentina. So it's an enviromental affected colour?
Im asking because there was a big German breeder who relocated to Argentina in the 60's, I believe......although unlikely of his lines...they were mainly dark bay and black, an occasional chestnut, with nearly zero chrome.....
This is all I could find:
I know she was owned by Lady Wentworth and was shown and won Championships.
Still doing some more digging, so I'll post what I find out. :)
Wow! That is very interesting. I can't wait to see what you dig up on her.
She is super cool looking, kind of has the same pattern as a pintaloosa.
Truly interesting, tho. There's gotta be a full pedigree somewhere of her.
Now I wish Mr. Chairman of the German association would read this...for him any Arabian with any pinto marking can't be purebred......:-)
Yes environmental factor I'd say. Probably fungal :/
But she's cool!
It's highly likely to be an environmental factor since it is only in horses living in Argentina (Arabians, Thoroughbreds, etc.) so it technically isn't a pinto pattern as it wouldn't be hereditary if it was environmental. I would call it an environmentally-induced pinto mimic XD
Gotta say, though, it's a gorgeous thing to look at.
