Hi,

Another pattern question. I think he is a sorrel pinto with sabino roaning(note the patch on his hip in top picture).

He also has sabino roaning on his stomach, and dark blue eyes. He is 2 years old so I am pretty sure that they will stay blue. What do you all think?

Thank you,

Debbie

P.S. Please forgive the large pics, I am not very good with the computer.

Splash is a possibility. I sure wish there was a test for it. Blue eyes are characteristic of Splash, but the ones I am familiar with have bright blue eyes. Frame is also a possibility. If this is a breeding animal, I would definately test for Frame (LWO).

I think Sabino is a pretty good guess.
He definitely has Sabino roaning. Remember that minimal Tobiano is a possibility also. As well as Splash & LWO (Frame)! You can test for Tobiano & LWO (Frame)....but there is no test for Splash currently.

Sabino..

To be on the safe side..

Check for Frame (LWO) I see it possible, but if I'd have to put money down.... Sabino and a nicely marked one.

For your own piece of mind I'd test him gentically for Tobiano and Frame..
