LOUHD Tips: Pinto by hippiej0e LOUHD Tips: Pinto by hippiej0e
:iconlouhd:

I thought If I made a mini series of info on Horse whites for LOUHD that it would be helpful. I wanted to make a better one than that one I made the other day, (Which I deleted) that was more helpful with pictures. I plan to eventually make a sheet for the LP gene, but for now we have this one! it covers the Tobiano and Overo  strings.

:star: Fullview Suggested :star:



Lethal Splashed White

Info from Animal Genetics, Inc. (www.animalgenetics.us)

"Research suggests that the SW-1 allele arose several hundred years ago before the foundation of the modern horse breeds. Breed distribution of SW-1 includes Quarter Horse, Paint, Trakehner, Miniature Horse, Shetland Pony and Icelandic Horse and may be present in other breeds as well. Horses homozygous for SW-1 (SW1/SW1) have been identified, which suggests that this mutation is not homozygous lethal. Research also suggests that SW-2 and the rare SW-3 may only occur in certain lines of Quarter Horses and Paints. It is also speculated that SW-2 and SW-3 may be homozygous (two copies of the mutation) lethal and result in non nonviable embryos. It is there for not advisable to breed two horses that carry SW-2 or SW-3 as the risk of a nonviable embryo could be 25% and should be avoided. "

Simplified Translation: Horses homo for SW-1 are not lethal but horses carrying SW-2 or SW-3 when bred if foal resulting is homozygous for either will be lethal white foal similar to the O/O genes.




"Tovero"

I see this commonly, this is in todays horse world extremely outdated. This simply means "A horse that's Tobiano and some other Overo gene we don't care about" which can be dangerous if that other Overo you don't care about ends up being frame, and in a breeding situations that can result in a Lethal White Foal. So proper wording of this is to say (in example)
"Hes a Chestnut Tobiano that also Carries ________ (insert Overo Gene here- so either Frame, Splash, or Sabino)




Disclaimer: I am not telling you how to Geneotype or Phenotype your horses! This is just some science, your choice if you want to follow it, I could care less! it's a pretend horse.

After reading this, I became curious as to what my stallion MGS Montana Sunset[link] would be like if he was a real horse.

Yea, He looks like he would be a Bay Appaloosa obviously, but as far as other stuff he is carrying... His leg whites could be anything you wish actually, he kinda looks more Sabino or Splash to me due to the whites placement (I only say splash because it so high and clean on the front leg) Does he have face whites?

I would safely suggest Sabino, but it's up to you :)

Could you possibly tell me what the Genotype for a Black Overo Marwari would be?

hmm, A Black Frame Overo would be
aa | E_ | nO

I put "E_" because it can be either EE or Ee (you choose) since both are dominantly black.
If you are wondering about the ear curls they carry, I am not so sure. Generally that is not represented in the genotype, so I am unfamiliar with the code. Though I assume they would be just like anything else, each parent has 50% possibility of passing it on.

Hope I helped ^^

That cob on the end of the splashed white is absolutely hilarious.

I didn't know Sabino doesn't cause blue eyes, so I'm going to look and double check some of my paints now, ha. Do splashed whites get blue or is it just frame?

It is very common for Splashed to get blue eyes, actually I read somewhere that it more common that they have blue eyes than not :aww:

your welcome! I had trouble too actually, until I joined HorseForum and learned from their pros, the Horse genetics section is very informative.
