Fawnling Pattern Chart by TigressDesign Fawnling Pattern Chart by TigressDesign

BEHOLD! The Fawnling Pattern Chart of Pretties.

This Patternchart is to help Fawnling creators work out what patterns are available to them when making designs, and what their genotype would be. Remember, patterns can show on ANY base, though how well they'll show depends on the base colour you choose! Make sure that when you're creating a fawn and using this char to choose a pattern that the combination of genes is possible from the parents! Note the group if you're not sure.

This isn't intended to be a complete display of what fawn patterns can do, but it should give you a pretty good clue of the limits! Restricted white patterns never cover more than 50% of the body's colour! 

Remember that FAWN PATTERNS ARE SYMMETRICAL! They do not follow the typical horsey face patterns, so no stars or pink noses! Socks are always in pairs, and never uneven! The general rule of thumb to use is that if you can find the pattern on a deer or antelope then it's probably possible - within reason! 

If you do have any questions please feel free to ask! We love to help! Check the FAQ first though, your question might already have an answer!

PLEASE NOTE: Patterns highlighted in red are not available for basic bacon custom designs! They can only be acquired through purchasing RARE custom designs with Bacon Points, through auctions or by breeding an in-game fawn. Any questions, just comment below!

Gosh! A colour sheet as well!:

Sorry chaps, "Open Creation" is closed for the foreeable future. The only way to get your very own Fawnling design is to win one from the group, through trades with other members, by requesting an in-game bred fawn or by earning enough Bacon Points.

How do I get a red-highlighted pattern?
Either by purchasing one with enough Bacon Points for a RARE design, winning one in an auction or breeding one from existing characters in-game.

What do all the letters mean? Why are there different amounts under each pattern?
The letters are "genotypes", the way to represent what genes your character has. The different options listed don't affect the pattern, only what genes can be inherited. 

Do patterns that cover the eye cause blue eyes?
Nope, not these ones! The only way to get blue eyes on a Fawnling is to have a double cream! See the Fawnling Colour Sheet for more info!
:new: There is ONE exception to the blue-eyes marking rule! Piebald! NOTE: The piebald genes are completely separate to the fawn pattern genes above, and are available only in very RARE circumstances! Read more about the newest mutation on this sheet:

Thanks Ehetere for your smoky fawn goodness <3

Can dappling occur in fawnlings?
TigressDesign Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep! If the colour occurs on a horse (except for white markings), then with a few exceptions, the rule of thumb is that it can occur on a fawnling. The fawnling gene "smoky fawn" also commonly causes dark dappling :)

Is there a difference in genotype between the Typical Expression and the Maximum expression?
TigressDesign Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope! For "Classic fawn"-based patterns, if they're on the same row, they're the same genotype. The "smoky fawn"-based genotypes can vary expression depending on the base colour, but the pattern genetics part is the same :) It's the same sort of variety that you'd get between a light bay-blood bay-mahogany bay. Same geno, different expression :)

If you're ever not sure, just sling me an example or pummel me with questions and I'll try not to ramble!

what are the genetics for Classic Fawn Typical Expression?
TigressDesign Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just stick /fwfw on the end of the base colour genetics :)
Russian-Grassland Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
did and sent in the design! :heart:
Russian-Grassland Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Student Digital Artist
is it just me or were there more choices before? lol
TigressDesign Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, they've been the same since the file was uploaded ;)

This will probably be a dumb questions, but is it possible for a fawn to be both classic and smoky? or is it just classic, or just smokey?
