All bicolors have them, and some sables.

Zefra has all three.

She has some pretty dark pencil toes, has the stripping down the front of the legs and also has the tar heels in the back.

She is a sable.

Will try to find a photo that shows all three..

Oh I didn't realize that's what you meant by striping, I thought you meant the stripe down the back.

Delgado has all three then, he's a bicolour

Bi-colors always have tarheels, and usually toe penciling as well.
Black/tans never do.
Sables usually have them, but not always. Usually they will be seen in darker sables, and may or may not be present in lighter sables.
