I know that breeding stock with sabino characteristics tend to throw color well, but how about a breeding stock that doesn't have sabino characteristics, but has white spots showing up on various areas (nothing big enough to qualify) as they get older? My breeding stock mare is by a tobiano stud and out of a breeding stock mare. She has one sock and a blaze, but the white does not go onto her chin. I suspect she won't throw color--the only hope I have is that she has white spots just appearing here and there on her body. Anyone have a mare like this and how well does she produce color? Thanks! -J
I have a sabino mare, that qualifies as regular registry just by the minimal spot on her belly and that was registering her as a yearling. The spot just qualified her. Her legs are high whites but not hi enough. Her white that is the sabino pattern throughout her body increases with time. she is about 12 now and has sortta come to a holding pattern with any additional white hairs. She throws max white babies. Normally when bred to a frame overo the babies have been more on the order of a med. hat. with color(dark) around the ears, some flecking down the back and down the chest. Again the only qualifing pink skin large enough for the mare is a spot on her belly. about 3 inches of pink skin under some white hair.
