    I don't see splash there positively. Frame can cause blue eyes (don't remember if she has any), splash almost always has at least one blue eye and the white comes up from the bottom. While of course there are minimal splashes they are not that common esp. in combination with frame AND sabino. You would expect to see more white down below. Since we can't test for splash she'd be a wait and see what she can produce before I'd throw splash in there.

    She's cute.

    Nope. Not almost always. Id say its about 50/50.

    Minimal splash are the most common.

    I see Splash as "positively" because of the way it falls off the face all over the place Sabino just doesn't do that, from what I have seen.

    But you're right, since there's no test for Splash, and no test for any Sabino other than SB1, it's guessing, however educated, at best on this one

    See I'm always learning on these threads!

    JB, I did not know about the "no facial white with blue eyes" being splash. We have a new guy at the barn who looks bay tobi to me. Dark head, white neck and shoulders, white above croup and tail (in other words very little dark). he has no facial white except for a tiny snip on his nose, but BLUE eyes! Those blue eyes are quite striking on the dark face.

    Would he be considered Tovero?

    Sorry, hijacking to learn!!

    Yes DEFINITELY tovero, and I would say splash. White is in the right place for it.

    JB take a look at this one that ACC showed me today. DEFINITELY interesting http://members.tripod.com/justasplas...rot%20Good.jpg

    Splash The tiny snip is a key, and the blue eyes are a definite sign I'd love to see a picture of his body markings.

    I'll ask his owner if I can post one. All of his dark markings have very smooth edges too. Nothing screams "overo" to me, except for the blue eyes! He's a nice little yearling stud colt that just came in from Wyoming.

    Riddle that is a cool looking individual!

    Splash, as well as Tobiano, put smooth edges on the markings. It's Frame and Sabino that scuff them up
