What's a Mismarked Cleveland Bay?
The breed standard for Cleveland Bays requires that all registered horses won't have any white markings exceeding a small star. Unfortuantely, some Cleveland Bays are born with larger or different markings, such as large stars, snips, white stripes, and even socks.
Prior to 2005, these horses were banned from registration. However, in 2005, the Cleveland Bay Horse Society passed a rule that allows the registration of said horses in a special book for mismarked Cleveland Bays, and allowed breeders to use them as breeding stock.
Mismarked foals born to two Cleveland Bays are not eligible for registration in the main registry for Cleveland Bays, but they are eligible for registration in the Mismarked Division. They can also serve as breeding stock for Cleveland Bays by crossing them with either regular Cleveland Bays or chestnut Cleveland Bays (the latter is useful if you have a chestnut Cleveland Bay that lacks markings.)
That said, mismarked bay Cleveland Bays cannot be crossed with each other, because the resulting foal will always be a mismarked Cleveland Bay, thus defeating their purpose as breeding stock for proper Cleveland Bays.
The following are the: range, average, (SD), and MOE of performance metrics of ordered Mismarked Cleveland Bays in Horse Isle (not bred ones). In rare cases,
Note: these metrics are identical to those of the Cleveland Bay.

Coats & Height:
Colors & patterns: always dark-bay (termed 'brown' in Horse Isle) or regular bay. The coat is always solid and can be sooty.
Markings: white markings can exceed a small star, although horses will be penalized for having markings that are too loud (especially blazes and stockings.)
Breeding notes: crossing two regular bay horses bears a 25% chance of getting a chestnut foal (see 'Mismarked Cleveland Bay - Chestnut Division' for more info.)
Height: 16hh to 16.2hh.
