Rabicano (Uncommon Markings)



Rabicano is a marking that adds textured, lighter colored stripes on the underside of the back half of the beast.
It must show at least a few stripes on the lower abdomen but may cover a large part of the back half (besides the legs) as well.
While it is okay to only use stripes to show Rabicano, it is also allowed to add textured patches of the same color, similar to Roan, and blend them together. Be careful to not completely merge them together, however! It should still be possible to clearly see the stripes in a few places.
Breaks are a-okay as well! Rabicano may show in different areas within the range without touching each other, but holes on the other hand are not permissible!
The color of it can be pure white (HEX: #FFFFFF, RGB: rgb(255,255,255)) but slightly off-white colors are okay too as long as it is still recognizable as white, looks natural and is not overly yellow or blue.
This marking was inspired by the rabicano coloration on horses, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!

Quick Facts Guide



Rabicano is relevant to and will always be lighter than the base coat color of the beast.
Alternatively, Rabicano may be white as well, no matter the base coat color. This includes using pure white (HEX: #FFFFFF, RGB: rgb(255,255,255)) as well as slightly off-white colors as long as they are still recognizable as white, look natural and are not overly yellow or blue.
