Pregnant Paint, Ovarro White Gene?

Hello,
I'm new to this forum, I have owned horses before geldings, mares.. However, I have never owned a pregnant mare before. I bought her this way and I'am very excited however I still learning. I read all these posts on here about Overo White gene's etc.. I'm getting worried. My nmare is a 6 year old Palimino Paint Quarter Horse . She was bread, I was told to a tan Quarter Horse. I do NOT know ANYTHING about the stud or for my mare's history. I have bought her from a lady in town here via another lady. I was also told that she will be due on June 22, 2011. I do not trust that. She is getting bigger it seems however, I do not think that she is over weight. She would be 8 months going into her 9th month now. However, I have noticed that her teats are bigger then a maidain mare's would be. I do know that, so I'm assuming this is not her first foal.. I have purchased the book " The Foaling Manual" and I LOVE it !! I'm learnign so much, but still scared with not knowing any history of this mare or her stud(hubby).lol..
Anyway could someone give me some info on the Ovarro WHite gene factor? I would ask the lady that I bought the horse from however, there is no connection available with either of these ladies.. Personally I would not bred any animal at this time let alone a horse because of the way the economy is. And there is so many out there that need homes..I would assume she would have wanted to keep this mare, however, she sold her to me so I did assume wrong... ANyway, I love her so much.. I'am always ready to learn more...

Do you have any pictures of your mare? We would need a picture to see if she is an overo that has Frame

Lethal White is caused when breeding two horses that carry the Frame gene. It doesn't happen every time, but there's a 25% chance if both horses are OLWS positive.

Ok Everyone, I found more pictures... The first one I loaded was just before I got her.. ABout a month. These next ones is just taken yesterday.. I have another question. It seems that she just figured out that she was pregnant. I have felt the baby kick and have and have seen her stomach move. Her appetite has picked up some lately, I do give her her pellets and free feed as well as grain each morning and night... I think that as she is going into her 9th month she should be bigger. Am I wrong? In this first picture I loaded she was mine yet and she does look to have that curve in her lower tummy. She was also a little ribby and needed her shots and hooves done. I have been taking care of that worming ( every other month with Pancure). Could this inhibited her in the beginning of her pregnancy? Again at this time she would have been pregnant for about 3 months.. What do you all think? ANyway here is somemore..

She's a tobiano, not an overo or tovero (combination of the two). Tobianos do not cause Lethal White.

She is a really pretty colour

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

Great!! She has had me worried.. She looks to skinny for me, I don't want her to founder, so I do not want to over feed her... Do you think that she looks on target for her gestation?

She looks like she needs a trim on her feet. When was it last done?
