Manchado: Manchado is a rare coat pattern that has only cropped up in Argentina in a handful of horses from various breeds (Criollo, Hackney, Arab, and TB so far). Because it is only found in Argentina and it has not proven to be hereditable, it may be the result of environmental factors rather than genetic ones. The pattern is not known to be related to other spotting patterns like the appaloosa pattern or Bend Or spots.
