Rabicano adds white hairs in the coat, usually at the base of the tail and the flanks. In minimal form, it can express as a few white hairs at the base of the tail. With extreme expression, it can extend up to the shoulders and even the chest of the animal, and put white patches behind the ears. It can also form striping on the barrel and put white hairs into the tail, which is sometimes referred to as a skunktail or silvertail. The inheritance of rabicano is not understood.
