BB/nB

Barring (or "Barred") results in dark banding and speckling across
the tokota, usually restricted to certain body areas.

Barring is meant to vaguely resemble owl markings, like those on the wings and neck. 
Given that this is fur and not feathers, however, barring will never be straight bands,
but rather either broken "lines" of color or intense spotting in concentrated areas.


Barring is always darker than the base coat unless the reversal mutation is present.
Barring covers all markings aside from seal, piebald, and all piebald extensions.
It will not display on albino or bloodmark coats, but does display on melanistic and luecistic tokotas.




Range

Pictured below in orange is the acceptable range of barring;
pictured in red are the common zones of concentration.
Barring will never appear on the legs, muzzle,
straight across the midsection, or the end of the tail.
 




Minimum/Maximum


On the left is a rough minimum of barring, and on the right is a rough maximum.
At minimum, one or two noticeable areas of barring should be present.
Remember, your barring should never resemble brindle, or cover the entire body.
It must be broken up into concentrated zones like those above.




Shape

The following patterns and styles are all acceptable representations of the barring gene.


Barring3 by DesignDen
Note: Your barring pattern should never resemble flecking, bearmarks or rainmarks!




What not to do:



Too thick and resembles bearmarks.


Barring should never be just squiggly lines!




Color

Unless the reversal gene is present, barring should always be darker than what
it is crossing. Barring may have a slight gradient, and may fade out into the base coat.

It must be saturated in accordance with the base coat,
and cannot be grey unless the graying gene is present.




Good examples of Barred Tokotas

So while I'm using the breeding roller, I've noticed that I put together a Ee/aa/tt/MM/CC/AA toko and a ee/aa/TT/MM/CC/AA/nD/nB, and I got barring in the mix of puppies? Does this have something to do with the dun?

A little late on the reply, but in case you were still wondering: "nB" (at the end of the second geno there) is non-dominant barring, which would by why a barring pup would appear.

Is barring and barred different? I've seen phenotypes using both but I can't fiquire out the difference.

Not an Admin, but I believe it is! Its just based on how the roller of the breeding wrote the pheno out :)
