I was curious to see what paint pattern she would be if she were a paint. Let me know if their are anymore pictures you need.

I'm assuming you're asking what pinto pattern she is? I'm by no means an expert, but I see tobiano, splash and maybe frame.

She IS "a pattern" .. whether or not she is a "paint" ..

I'll leave it to the experts to tell you which one (or more) that might be!

Pretty!

Okay well let me explain what I am asking exactly or how it was explained to me. I am no color guro by any means. I can tell you she is chestnut and white and thats it. I was told because she is not a paint she is not a pattern that she is simply "spotted". This came from a vet that was doing her coggins. So, according to them she has no pattern because she is not a paint. She is a Spotted Saddle Horse, meaning she is simply spotted and not patterned.
If that makes any sense.

In this picture you can kind of see up on top of her rump where the white and chestnut overlap. It now a clean line. I dont know if this has anything to with anything but just figured I would add it in there.

The vet was wrong.

There are four pinto patterns: tobiano, splash, frame and sabino. A horse can be of any breed and still display one or more of the pinto patterns. A perfect example are gypsy horses. They can have any pinto pattern. Spotted Saddle Horses are just saddlebreds displaying one or more pinto pattern.

She is not a Paint with a capital P, as in registered APHA. However, she still has pinto markings. The words spotted and patterned are meaningless and have nothing to do with her genetic make up, which looks to entail at least Tobiano, and like others said, possibly Splash and Frame.

What exactly are splash and frame?

DraftyAiresMum 02-14-2013 04:07 PM

On a horse with splash, it will look like the white on the horse was literally "splashed" on the horse from bottom to top. This is a classic example of splash: http://ilovehorsies.files.wordpress....plashwhite.jpg

On a horse with frame, the white will look like it is being "framed" by the color. Here is an example:http://imgc.allpostersimages.com/ima...yoming-usa.jpg See how on the first horse, the color is "framing" the white?

There are test's for most of the patterns if you wanna know. She is defiantly a tobiano and possibly one of the splashes as well :)
