Genotype and coat
What is the genotype and coat of this horse?
Help me please
The white mane/tail could indicate silver, so could be a silver black sabino, or just black sabino if you change the mane and tail color.
Thank you all! I change the mane and tail to black
If you're registering this as a realistic Arabian, it won't be accepted with SB1 in the genotype.
A black sabino Arabian can be registered as:
You may also put FF, Ff, or ff in the genotype as well, depending if you want your horse to be homozygous flaxen (ff) a flaxen carrier (Ff) or carry no flaxen (FF)
What is the genotype and coat of this horse? Part 2
You can't realistically register this as a Thoroughbred as it is a tobiano.
Andrea means the white pattern is a type that thoroughbreds don't have, called 'tobiano'. If you want a white patterned thoroughbred try looking up 'overo', 'dominant white', or 'splash' references
@Elsie-Spectre now it's right?
That would still be a tobiano marking. Overo tends to avoid crossing the back of the horse. Here are a few examples of Overo:
Those are examples of frame overo (nO) Thorougbreds can also come in Splash (nSpl/SplSpl) Those horses tend to have a "dipped in paint" look. Starting from the legs and face and/or going up the belly with nice clean edges.
A dominant white horse can be anything from white markings to lace or spattered markings across the body in a semi uniform pattern. There are many different white patterns identified that have a distinguished look to them. For Equus purposes we use nW or Ww or WW.
As Elsie stated above, googling the terms "frame overo" "splash white" or "dominant white" horse will really be helpful in learning white patterns.
