I was looking through one of her Paint breeding books & although there is still some debate, a Tobiano is thought to be a grey/white horse with patches of color whereas an Overo is a colored horse with patches of white. So it would make sense for a Tobiano to have some facial markings as well as white legs (which is VERY common).
You're thinking of Piebald and Skewbald.
AnnaLover and CheyAut hit it on the nail. I posted Equine Color already. And it is also still in debate whether completely solid horses with facial/leg markings carry sabino/splash.
Dakota, have you never seen two horses with just high whites and face markings throw an overo foal? I have. Please look into that site more. And I also never said definitely leaves the head solid, I said generally.
