Her test results are In!!!!!!
Got the test results for my filly just now & I'm a bit surprised at the results aside from Tobiano to be honest. Overo Result: N/N - No evidence for the altered sequence detected. Sabino 1 Result: N/N - No evidence of altered sequence detected. Tobiano Result: TO/TO - Two copies of altered sequence. Horse is homozygous for Tobiano. All offspring will inherit Tobiano. Splashed White SW-1 Result: N/N - No copies of SW-1 mutation. Splashed White SW-2 Result: N/N - No copies of SW-2 mutation. Splashed White SW-3 Result: N/N - No copies of SW-3 mutation. Pic of filly IMAGE(http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l204/ponytoad/Cynder.jpg) IMAGE(http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l204/ponytoad/cynder3.jpg) So I'm going to HAVE to do her life registration as Tobiano until proven otherwise, as As far as the Pinto society goes- if they test neg for all Overo genes they are Tobiano period (which isn't necessarily a bad thing), nor will the breeder want to test her stallion now either :( So where to from here? I've read somewhere that there is a lab/ geneticist (not sure which/who), that is taking those horse's results whom should be Splash White, yet have tested neg for it- (I remember someone saying this is what had been done with their own horse/s who tested neg) to be part of the study so something). Is this a line worth pursuing? If so where is that/who do I contact please? After coming on here I'd been convinced she wasn't "just" Tobiano & well I still believe she isn't "just" tobiano, she has proven to be neg for ALL Overo patterns that can be tested for aside from DW (which I dont she comes close to having), so that is what Im going to have to call her- a Tobiano :shock: Isnt it? :BH I also have to pass on the info to her breeder- who was told categorically that she was only tobiano (that all her horses were in that regard) & her blue eyes came from being a buckskin tobiano - I dont think I have managed to convince her other wise yet & these results wont help ~x(

I believe it was UC Davis

I believe it was UC Davis that was looking at the horses that tested negative for splash but looked splash.

I would have thought her splash for sure! What fascinating results.

Same here. Looks Tobi Splash

Same here. Looks Tobi Splash to me. Send her on over to UC Davis for further study. They might find SW4 yet!

Thanks for the replies Hmmm

Thanks for the replies :)

Hmmm - It was USD that tested her - Do I have to email them directly to request she be included in the study?

He carries me away from all my fears
And when the world threatens to fall asunder
His mane is there to wipe away my tears."
