Varigated

Varigated

 

Description

 

Varigated is a marking also related to Hooded. Like Hooded, the head and shoulders are a single color, but instead of a doral stripe, the white body is colored with spots and flecks of the head color. Most standards call for the varigation to cover as much of the body as possible without being a single mass of color. Standards also call for facial markings, from Headspot to Blaze, depending on the showing club.

 

Genetics

 

Related to Hooded on the H locus, a modified marking between Berkshire (H/h) and Hooded (h/h) with facial marking modification added on.
