I agree with spastic...
"western stud" doesn't really give anyone a real clue as to what you are wanting from the foal; western involves many different aspects, so are you looking for a stallion with pleasure, or gaming background? Reining, or cowhorse? Halter? etc, etc...'western' is not descriptive enough for us to really give you what you are wanting, because the breeds have been refined over the year to give the breeders/owners stock that do well in events that they've specifically bred for.
And as far as overo...you will want to make sure he is not a carrier for lethal white; you would want to make sure your own mare is not a carrier as well, and if she's sabino (corret me if I'm wrong paint fans) she "could be". Color on color, especially in paints, is not always the best option to get color in the first place, and especially when it may cost the foal it's life (LWS).
