This is stunning DA Remote Control, a half Arabian mare whose and white streaks are probably the result of a somatic mutation!

This is a mare whose odd white streaks are probably the result of a somatic mutation. Somatic mutations are the result of a gene that is accidentally switched "off," often resulting in odd patches of color on an otherwise ordinary coat.

This is a girl who used to show in my area's mare... everyone always just called it a birthmark, but is it really chimera?

Adorable foal with a somatic mutation. Basically the gene responsible for brown color in that hair was switched off in that area and resulted in black hair. Somatic mutations are not inherited traits.

Somatic Mutation: while it may appear to be striping caused by brindling, this is actually different. It is not caused by chimersim, nor is it inheritable. It is simply a random, once-off mutation.

This is actually my uncles horse, I've always wondered about his unique coloring!!!! Raised him since he was a baby!

This is a pureblood Labrador retirever. The unusual cloring is most likely from chimerism or a somatic mutation.

A Half-Arabian mare named DA Remote Control. She may be a chimera (the result of twins joining in utero) but is probably a variation of rabicano.

This Trakehner colt, Holme Park Van Gogh, was an excellent example of a somatic mutation. The black patch on his otherwise bay coat was the result of the agouti gene misfiring leaving that section of his coat an undiluted black.
