Rarity at Oldenburg Elite Auction - White Sabino foal by Florencio
The name of the foal is "O' wie weiss" (Oh how white) and it is by Florencio-Relevant-Cordeur. All white except chestnut ears, like we all know it from a lot of maximum Sabinos. The dam herself is already with lots of white flash, she is by Relevant.
He's not actually a medicine hat is he? I thought that was an extreme overo or tobiano.
This one is extreme sabino so its rather a chestnut with extra, EXTRA long stockings. All the way up to his ears in fact and a belly patch that goes to his backbone on either side. LOL
I tried twice to breed one from different Sabino mares to Budweiser (who has already bred a white foal in Australia) and I got a chestnut with a star and a sock each time. Actually I wasn't trying to breed the colour but I wouldn't have minded, the fillies are super anyway.
There are some that believe the horse must also have a chest shield and solid colored back in order to be considered a true medicine hat. Some believe that blue eyes are a must as well. There are many others however that feel the solid ears or "war bonnet" is enough.
He's what we'd call a "war bonnet" in our breed. When only the ears are dark like that and no chest shield. I think he's going to darken up as he ages. You can already see the streak of color he has similar to his dam across his body.
Wow. THIS is a horse who would get noticed in the show ring and his breeding suggests he has a great chance of making a great impression no matter what his color. With talent and good training, color like that'll get him and his rider/trainer noticed. I do feel sorry for his groom, though. Very very sorry.
