General information

White spotting coat colour phenotypes affect the development of melanocytes. Melanocytes produce melanin which is a dark pigment responsible for skin colour. Splashed white (SW) is a white spotting coat colour phenotype in horses characterised by loss of pigment.

Clinical features

SW horses are often characterised by a large broad blaze, white markings on the legs, variable white spotting on the belly and blue eyes.

Additional information

An increased risk for deafness in horses with the splashed white and/or frame overo spotting phenotype has been described in literature.
