Hi, I'm interested to learn a bit more about these tobiano beauties, the coat patterns etc, and instead of continueing to Hijack another thread, I thought I better start a new one.... So with Pinto's is it desirable in competition that the horse with the most even markings of colour and white space should place highest? This is what a breeder would aim for when breeding? One that is evenly marked rather than one which has more white, or more dark colour?? This is less favourable?? What about Blue eye/s?? Are these a favourable trait to have? So if you have a pinto with a blue eye, you are likely to place higher/valued higher? Also with the Blue eye/s, is this a trait that inherently comes from say your western breed horses, and then passed down through generations? Or is it possible through all types of pinto breeds and something in the pinto genetic? What about the coat pattern, some of the Tobiano's I see have in some places of there patches what appears to look like a smeared/smudged/unclear outline....is this a less favourable trait and a solid (like ink texta marker) border around patches is more preferrable? Stripey hooves are in, and stripey tails also good? And patchey genetalia? Can any breed of horse be registered Pinto so long as it paperwork can prove it's from patchy parentage? Be kind, I'm learning!
