I will agree with you about being outdated weefoal. However, those of us who are really into paints only have the 4 categories, as vague as they may be, to choose from. That would be interesting if they would get into that though, more detailed color genetics. That would probably entail bloodwork done with every registration though, which could be good and bad IMO. No flamage weefoal, I enjoy getting educated

I've been always confused with the spots on back. If most of back white, but there are couple dark spots on top, is it considered to be overo or tobiano? And vs (mostly dark with couple white spots)?
All the characteristics listed don't have to be present. Overo will not have any white that crosses over the back at all between the withers and the tail. In the mane and tail is ok. From looking at your horse, it is most definitely a tovero just from seeing the white back(tobiano), "medicine hat" (dark ears), and bald face(overo). She is very cute btw :) I love paints!
As for the specific genetics, I will leave that to weefoal ;)
