Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

It's just weird how they have lots of leg white, big body splotches like splash, but can have as little as a star on their head. It looks very splashy, but splash usually does a lot on the face. It very well could be just a strange expression, but it's suspicious how consistent it is. In my opinion. I'm not a horse geneticist, though!

this guy has a lot of white on him. The video shows some neat angles on him, like under his jaw and such.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Hm, DW is making sense, that one looks just like Puchi Trap and two of her foals. All of them have that white going down and under their heads. http://www.angelfire.com/on3/TrueColours..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

I saw those guys. So far I've seen three different sets of horses that had white on their body. The splashy ones, the sabino-dominant white ones, and the roanish ones. The splash ones have have high leg white, often connected to a large patch of what that is around their girth area on one side, but not much face white. The DWish ones have the white trailing up and very jagged with white under the jaw like that, but generally a lot of face white. The roanish ones have a large amount or normal face and leg white, but have strange roan patches in the area of their stifle, not connected to the legs. There are a lot of rabicano Hackneys also.

Lots of white seems popular in Hackneys, maybe because it looks flashy?

I think I found a splash hackney: http://www.hackney.ca/classifieds/chs_ho..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; scroll down chestnut gelding from Tandem Hill Farm!

Think you hit the nail on the head there. Half white legs on a gaited animal, yep.

I've never thought a horse had to have a white face to be splash, it's just the most obvious expression. I don't think it's at all unusual to have a splash with obvious body markings and not much white on the head. Remember I have shetlands though, they don't often have face or leg white white, so I've got my own weird way of looking at things :)

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

I posted a horse not long ago APHA or AQHA(can't remember), but can't find the good pics of him... he was splash white (i'm guessing) just had a white chin and 4 high white legs. Slightly Zipped is his name http://www.silvercreekranch.net/images/s..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; you can't see the chin white here though

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Those last two foals you posted, with the white on the face that looks like it's trying to wrap around the eyes making these two patches. That reminds me of some other Paint horses, be they Frame, Tobiano, or Tobiano + lord knows what. I've seen that expression a lot, and now I wonder if this is DW, then some of these Tobiano/Sabino or Frame/Sabino horses out there may be DW instead of Sabino? Or is DW and Sabino used interchangeably, like how Frame and Overo.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

The reason I think new mutation is because they seem to come out of nowhere and they aren't allowed to cross breed.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

I don't think they came out of no where. According to to American Hackney Society it's common to have white on the head and legs. These odd balls that just popped up, I think are loud expression of the genes. I'm trying to find old historic photos, but pretty much every hackney I come across on line has white legs and white on the head.

Gah omg, there are so many images on that website. But I think you get the drift LOL.

Any way, the Hackney was used to improve other breeds like the Gelderlander. And one of the first Gelderlanders I've ever seen had loud 'sabino' markings on the head and leg. So I wonder now, if thats where they get them from. Google searching them most of them have the same white markings.

I looked up Norfolk-Roadster, which is what the Hackney used to be called(?) and found an image of a Norfolk-Roadster Cross, the first image of this site: http://www.torihobune.ee/English/history..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Heldenknabe, and Hingstar where two of his sons, Hindo was his grandson.

Well, all of those look true sabino to me, unlike these weird ones.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

But like Frame, can't Splash be something as minimal as a sock?

Yes, but those Hackneys IMO don't LOOK splash. Splash once it gets as loud as those Hackneys are almost ALWAYS has MUCH more face white than those do.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Exactly. They really look DW, but the more minimal ones really don't... that's why I think new DW mutation(s). They're proving to be *relatively* common.

What would a horse look like if it expressed DW and Sabino at the same time.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Your guess is as good as mine, but I somewhat doubt there'd be much difference.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

This hole Sabino and DW thing confuses me. When word of different sabino like patterns made way to my ears they were considered Sabino and were being labled 1,2,3 ect. Now they are considered Dominate White, where as I thought dominate white was something entirely different. So I've heard people now say that sabino and DW are not the same. But what makes them so different? I realize there are different levels of white expression in various breeds that are thought to be different then other breeds, but I'm unclear as to why sabino is the kid left out of doggy doggy where's your bone.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

I think DW would have been called sabino before they found all the DW's. But it's called DW not sabino because it's inherited differently. I think supposed to be a dominant gene as opposed to sb1 being umm... incomplete dominant? Someone will come on soon who knows the way it works much better than me LOL!

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Exactly. Dominant white is a gene that can produce an all white horse in the heterozygosu form and is believed embryonic lethal in the homozygous form. Sabino is an incomplete dominant gene that produces minimal (to possibly moderate) white in heterozygous form and all white in homozygous form (and is not lethal).

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Got yah. But then..would there still be a unknown controller for expression? I mean if two sabino carrying hackneys got together and made obviously more sabino hackneys, what's repressed the expression of these markings the last....3 decades? Wouldn't we have seen an entirely white hackney by now?

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

Not necessarily. Some lines of sabinos don't seem to produce full whites. The only one we know of for sure that does is SB1. It's possible there are other forms of sabino that don't EVER produce all white.

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

@_@ oh gods...so there's going to be like...11 DW's and how many sabinos XD lol. Darn it all. Can't we finish discovering one gene before we open a loaded can of worms for others LOL. SO FRUSTRATING.

ROFL!!! There are likely as many sabinos as there are DWs IMO. Blame the KIT gene. It just seems to LOVE to mutate. :rofl:

Re: Splash in Hackney Horses

That's crazy!!

This guy almost looks tobi:

But there's a also a splash feel to it, save for the minimal face white. HEY!!! Maybe they are splash and tobi and they're restricting each other!! :rofl I'm kidding... but really, they're weird.
