Hi I'm a newbie!
I just posted this in the wrong place. Here is a link to my question.
Any answers would be appreciated.

HI I'm new to this website and thought I'd intro duce myself. I have 3 large riding horses and 8 minis. I have rescued all bu 1 of those minis. He was born here from rescue mom. lol I have 3 new rescues in this year and they are all paints. I was wondering if someone could help me with their colorings? I have no idea what pattern they carry but Dreamer might be bred to the chocolate pintolossa. My vet wont do an ultrasound on a mini so I have to wai and see what happens. I'm concerned for LWO. What do you think.

The gelding is definitely Tobiano. He is probably carrying Splash as well - that tiny snip is sometimes a minimal expression of Splash, especially when paired with socks. Is his right eye blue, or does it just look that way in the first picture because of his forelock covering it? If it's blue, he's definitely Splash as well.
The mare is Tobiano.
The colt...I'm not 100% sure, the LP gene throws me off when it's mixed with pinto patterns lol, but my guess would be Tobiano & maybe Sabino?

The gelding does have one blue eye.
The mare was bred by the colt when we were picking them up. The colt is not related to the mare from what we can find out. Should I be concerned? I've had horses my whole life but never really learned anything about breeding paints and the LWO issue.

thye are all very nice looking horses! I love the first one :D such a nice kind face on him :D

I doubt they are both Frame carriers, but it's always a good idea to test any pinto breeding stock for the gene, just to make sure. At this point, since she's already preggers, there would really be nothing you could do if both parents were Frame carriers. If you were planning on breeding either of them in the future, I'd get them tested, although if I've read your first post correctly, I think you're interested in rescuing, not breeding.

That's right, she came bred as far as we can tell. They are now separated and the colt will be gelded in the spring.

Just test the mare. As long as she doesn't carry LWO, then you won't have to worry about the foal she's carrying. Mini's should all be tested, colored or not. From what I've read, LWO is pretty common in minis with all of the color mixing going on.

Kind of rude don't you think?

OP - I agree with testing if that is the route you want to go. Frame can and does hide very easily. It is not always easy to tell if a horse is a carrier or not. Some are pretty clear, but some... Well you just can't tell. Like solids who are frame positive, but show no outward appearance of it.

Cute bunch of minis by the way!
