for more detail )
The fore legs on the markings illustrations have been shaded to provide a clear distinction from the hind leg illustrations. If a leg marking is indicated, a hoof color must be checked. It is assumed that all markings originate from the coronet band.
For registration and identification purposes, hoof colors should be recorded as follows:
-Dark hoof - black or dark in color. Normally, there will not be a marking above a dark hoof.
-White hoof - white or light in color. Normally, there will be a marking above a white hoof.
-Parti-colored hoof - a hoof that shows white and dark areas in stripes or larger areas. Normally, there will be a marking above a parti-colored hoof.
