Gulastra Plume question-breed?
Since I don't want to hijack the other thread, now that it has been determined that Gulastra Plume is actually what my guy has, I am wondering what you all think about his breed. Since this trait is caused by the sabino gene, it is still possible that he is a QH/TWH as I have been told, or do you all think he may be another cross? He is a PMU, so I have always sort of questioned, since I had not heard previously of TWH's being used on those strings. I had thought they were mostly drafts and QH's. I do not think he is a draft cross at all.

He also has some black spots in his blaze-actually a bit more than the last picture shows. Does that have anything to do with the sabino gene too?

Thanks so much!

I am no expert but, I have read that there is paint genes in quarter horses. That's how full blooded QH can have blue eyes and such.

Any horse that has white markings (socks, blaze, star, etc) has some type of pinto gene. But there are sooo many of them, we know very little compared to how many genes we do not know about.

Your boy definitely carries the sabino gene.

He does not look TWH to me. But its possible he could have some in him. Unfortunately I*doubt youll ever know for sure.*i do see QH though!

hes gorgeous btw.

Thanks-I keep trying to minimize the 'TWH" part when folks ask what he is....especially since we do Not exactly looked favorably upon. But, when people see him move, they ask if he is gaited, which he is not, just incredibly smooth. I am happy to hear that the Qh part appears to be the majority of his gene pool.

Maybe some TB in there? I've seen the plume in a couple of TBs.

Something about him does sort of hint at TWH to me.

When you say he is very smooth, does he tend to move laterally at the walk? This won't actually look or feel like a "gait" but can indicate the ability to do so. I have a Saddlebred mare who is gaited, but if she isn't gaiting ( she does have a w/t/c) some coaches have picked it out because she of how she walks. She tends to feel very smooth no matter what gait she is doing.

Aside from that... Many breeds display plume, and I have seen quite a few QH's with it to some degree.

Unicorn-he just has a fast walk, imo, of course I am used to my ClydeX, who is the "la-dee-dah" type, and is always last in line on the trail. ;-) I don't think I have any videos of walk or trot, but I will look.
