Re: Tobiano with solid legs

I saw an hour long documentary on the people that live with these horses, and rely on them for everything....they eat only horsemeat, nothing else (Yuk, there is such a thing as too much meat, guys, and it is not as if you could not buy the occasional potato or carrot!)
The slaughter scene actually had me fast forwarding, and I am no wimp when it comes to humane slaughter, I have held all my animals that have been shot, myself, I feel that is the least I can do for them, but this was....gruesoem. Again, no excuse, it is not as if they could not buy a gun, or even a sharp knife would have been better than what they actually did. And the wimp of a woman who was making the film wittered on about tradition.
Blow tradition, cruel is CRUEL!!!

OK, rant overIMAGE(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v131/rabbitsfizz/1857272.gif)

Not a pinto in sight, basically, Dun was the colour of choice, mostly Bay Duns, and they were prized, although the main stallion of this herd was the pale "grey" Dun colour you get in Fjords....but, of course, we were only seeing them in the middle of winter (I think they do shed out, even though "summer" is only a couple of months when it doesn't snow!!) so it is hard to judge what colour they were really.

Re: Tobiano with solid legs

Another one with a solid leg, now I'm looking I've actually seen quite a few! So... is a tobiano with solid legs all that unusual really??

Keeping in mind shetties without tobi don't usually have socks too, maybe that's why we get a few tobi's with solid legs turning up??

I think this boy is interesting anyway for a shetland, with the jagged edges to his pattern, plus a bit of a splash look to them too

And this one is out of a full sister to my red and white filly in the first post.

Very, very odd IMO.

This is one of the reasons I have always kept an open mind on Sabino in Shetlands....

Re: Tobiano with solid legs

Yeh I don't think their markings are always JUST tobiano and splash either. But I can also see where the no sabino comes from not having the the usual range of non tobiano socks etc.. that other breeds do. But that might just mean they don't have all the sabinos. I hate to think how many genes there actually are that can cause or effect white markings!!

Here is another solid leg yearling colt. But I'll stop posting them now, there are seriously heaps of these. The ones I've posted are just friends ponies, there are heaps more out there. I'm going to stop looking LOL, and just accept I think, that shettie tobianos can have solid legs for whatever reason. :?
