    I know there is Sabino and Splash but according to the rules it is not allowed, just nobody knew when these genetics were involved. The blue eyes are not allowed and that will happen every now and then with the "overo" genetics.

    Sounds as if she may be varnishing.

    I have a 28 yo 1/2 App mare who is varnish with black spots on her butt. Since I've only had her since she became aged and was completely varnished, I don't know if she ever had a blanket on her rump. Any one here willing to make a wild guess? She must have been a chestnut to begin with, though, since in her non white areas, she's very close to pink. The black spots are puzzling, since I would have thought her blanket spots would have been the same color as her base coat.
