Markings and guides belong to Tokotas


Restricted Piebald

nPb+R
Restricted piebald is a restriction gene, which leaves large de-pigmented areas on the coat.
Unlike regular piebald, however, restricted piebald will always be much more minimal.

Marked should not show over the white parts on restricted piebald, same as regular piebald.

On the left is a regular piebald. On the right is a restricted piebald.

Rough Minimum / Maximum

Minrpied by DesignDenMaxpied by DesignDen
At the very minimum - as shown approximately on the left - restricted piebald
must be distinguishable from regular minimum white markings, and must be
at least somewhat irregular, instead of having a completely straight edge.

As mentioned below, the Tokota should never be more than 50% white.
On the right is a rough maximum, meaning that these examples are
just a general guide for the general amount of white markings.




Pattern

Restricted piebald follows all the same rules of regular piebald,
with the exception being that less than 50% of the Tokota will be white,
rather than the opposite, as with regular piebald.
For instance, you must, as usual, avoid the following:



LEFT: Too wispy; piebald edges should not have such long bits of fur straying off the white.
RIGHT: Overly-blurred edges; the edge of piebald needs to be more defined.


LEFT: Too feathery; a mix between wispy and blurry -- piebald edges need to be defined.
RIGHT: Too spotty; the edges should not be overly-complex or have so many tiny spots.

Perfect!

As for the positioning of piebald markings, all of the following would be correct examples:
white markings can cover any area on the body and will take a kind of "overo" shape.




Correct Restricted piebald:

Incorrect Restricted piebald:

Wrong1 by DesignDenWrong2 by DesignDen
LEFT: White markings are stripe-like and unnatural.
RIGHT: The coverage of white is much too high. This Tokota is more than 50% white.
Wrong3 by DesignDenWrong4 by DesignDen

LEFT: While this is technically an acceptable amount of white,
the piebald is basically a line across the body - much too straight and not irregular enough.
RIGHT: The piebald is much too swirly and unrealistic.
Wrong5 by DesignDen
Likely meant to resemble Sabino - your Piebald should not
be textured or too irregular around the edges.

Remember, your Tokota will be rejected for having too much of an unrealistic pattern.
There are many incorrect ways to do this, so your best bet is to follow
the guides and look at horse examples of splash and overo!




Isolated white spots

Isolated white spots must be subtle.

Left: incorrect || Right: Correct

Isolated6 by DesignDenIsolated3 by DesignDenIsolated1 by DesignDen
Left + Middle: Incorrect || Right: Correct




What it should look like:

Obviously, your restricted piebald should not look like a regular piebald Tokota.
A good method is to look at horses for realistic examples; this is supposed to
mimic splash and certain other white patterns in horses.



What it shouldn't look like:

What would the ideal genotypes of 2 parents be to produce a res pied baby?  
Reply  ·  
Gypinator's avatar
To breed one I would need one parent to be nPb (like they said below) and the other parent to be nPb+R? Or can it happen at random times too?

That's correct, one of the parents has to be nPb+R for restricted piebald to pass, it cannot occur randomly.

More questions, sorry. x.x

1. Could two restricted pies breed together?
2. If bred between a piebald and restricted... are the chances of getting another restricted pretty low?

Two restricted pies can breed together, yes.

It depends on the non-restricted piebald in that pairing -- if you bred nPb x nPb+R, you'd have a pretty good chance, but if you bred a PbPb x nPb+R, not so much, as restricted piebald will can occur on a heterozygeous piebald (nPb).
