Horses With Unique And Beautiful Coats

The Sabino Gene Is Quite Unique

“Sabino” refers to a specific spotting pattern that appears on horses’ coats. The spotting is always white and it’s produced by a specific gene known as the Sabino 1 gene. There is actually a DNA test to find out if a horse is truly a sabino, or if it’s just a roan. We’ll see roan horses later on in this article.

Sabino horses only roan in certain areas of their skin— usually around the face and belly. Roan horses have white fur all throughout their coats.
