Article on Slipped Tobianos in PHJ
Got my february issue of PHJ today and they did use Doc's pic in the article on Slipped tobianos (he looks pretty) :D Hopefully eventually they will publish it on the APHA site so we can we can post it on here, interesting article. They are asking for more hair samples of minimal or slipped tobianos registered with the APHA to do more testing. In excange you will recieve a free testing for either Tobiano, frame overo or sabino 1. I don't need any of those but I think I will still send Doc's sample in. To recieve a aplication form email~ syoungren@stevenson.edu

It's a great article and they mentioned you. One of the things they said that was interesting is that when one parent is solid and the other is a mininmal tobiano, then that is when you oftened get the slipped very minimal tobiano's. Doc's Sire is a solid as in not a stitch of white QH and his dam was HZ but minimal tobiano.

Some of that may have stemmed from the suppression theory I told her about. She started really looking for signs of suppression in the "solids".

I have been wondering about suppression in coat patterns for awhile. It seems like certain horses here block patterns and others let them through.

How does your suppression theory work?

That's what they are trying

That's what they are trying to figure out, my gelding is now part of a study at Stevenson university by Dr Susan Youngren.
He has one solid parent (no white) and his dam a minimal HZ tobiano. They are trying to figure out if that has anything to do with it. One other thing the article mentioned is that they (the researchers) were wondering if it had anyting to do with KIT.
It's a interesting article, and soon as a online version is available we will post it here. But it still is probably available in some tack shops, I know mine carries it.

Here is the picture of my gelding they used in the article, he just has that one very small spot on his neck, other than his socks. He also has the ermine and distal spots on his socks that are part of a suppression theory. ACC can explain that better than I.
