Not overo at all, and not even a pinto pattern. Rabicano.

Rabicano - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Then what about this? Same horse. I'm confused. They have him as an overo.

I would sure want to call him misregistered, but there are some cases where sabino can mimic rabicano... Rabicano versus Sabino The Equine Tapestry

I'm trying to find photos of the sire, A Sudden Impulse, and from what I'm getting it appears that he was rabicano, too.

But seems to run in the family....

I definetly recognize MDR Impulsive....I think I have a little better idea of what the differences.

From the reading I got that sabianos were roanings in the flanks and rabicanos were brindle patterns in roaning along the barrel? Does that sound right? Or close?

Ok. Here is A Sudden Impulse.
