What is he?
My friend picked up a thoroughbred gelding from the auction a couple days ago. He has a lip tattoo but she hasn't tried reading it yet. What are these markings??

Love his little moustache, I would say splash.

I'm leaning toward splash along with something that does not want want. Maybe a minimal sabino that's fighting the splash and causing the off-center, pseudo-badger face and dark legs, or maybe some other form of suppression. That belly splot seems kind of sabino-y to me.

Yea, the belly spot had me thrown off.

Re: What is he?

I'd be fairly interested in seeing this one tested for frame.

That being said, I would bet most of it is Splash/Sabino.

Re: What is he?

yes this one makes me also wonder about frame.....and probably sabino too.

I would say sabino and possibly splash (altho' I can't say I've heard/seen much splash expression in TBs--just these hidden little things like off-set snips/blazes, etc.)

Re: What is he?

He looks splash, maybe with some colour supression limiting it somehow on the face?

He was incredibly sad. They were taken the day he was brought here from the auction. Who knows what he came from... :(

Re: What is he?

How old is he supposed to be? He looks like he has not lived a very happy life and is looking for a loving "forever" home...that is how Akina looked when I first got her. The poor thing, makes you just want to hug and hold him...giving him all the love you can :love .
