Marking rules

  • Sabino has no layering restrictions and can sit over or under other markings.
  • Sabino can sit anywhere on the centaurs body. It can cover about 20-50% of the body. The original basecolor must be visible under it.
  • Sabino's color should always be from slightly off-white to pure white.
  • Sabino is not inverted spotting, meaning it's not only individual white spots. Sabino has to have a solid white part from where the speckles spread out. See the examples!
  • Sabino is one large cluster, and it cannot be present as multiple clusters around the body.
