What does the white spot on the knee indicate?
I remember this was a topic on the old forum but can't remember what we decided.

I would guess frame fighting for no white on the leg plus another pattern that likes white on the leg.

I've seen this on Welsh ponies too so it seems just sabino could do it or sabino/splash.

Yeh that sort of thing appears in the Gypsy Cobs a lot too, I think splash and sabino doing strange things!

I've allways thought it was Sabino that did that. That particular horse is both splash and sabino though.

Definitely splash and sabino, plus I strongly suspect frame, very strongly.

Here is a picture of my farrier and his ASB, it has a white knee.

It ought to be Frame, but I had always understood it to be Sabino. ;)

I think the OP horse may be frame (in addition to the other two). The ASB looks mostly sabino (which I believe is the cause of knee spots regardless of other patterns). Tribute to Sierra's likely is sabino, but that knee spot isn't the only odd white he's got. :lol: That boy is proven splash too btw. Not sure how it plays into his markings, but he is.
