I think you mean sabino-white. Dominant white is an actual gene for white... It's not related to the paint/pinto patterns.

And speedy, white markings on the face and legs are always caused by either sabino, frame or splash (what CheyAut calls "overo" patterns... Personally I don't like lumping them all together like that. In the non-paint world overo means frame only). We just don't normally call a horse sabino/splash/frame simply because it has a blaze.

Actually no, DW is a pinto pattern just like sabino, splash, frame, ect. A lot of horses that were thought to be sabino are actually DW. There are at least 11 different DW mutations that have been tested.

Some links on DW:

While I also do not like the term "overo" many people think of overo as only frame, many think of overo as all the non-tobiano genes, which is the correct way of thinking of it, but really each gene should be called what it is, not lumped together as "overo."

They've changed the definition since I read up on it then. New research I guess.

Then why is it called "overo lethal white syndrome" instead of "frame lethal white syndrome?" Is it because the condition was not connected specifically to the frame gene at first?

I am unaware of the reasoning they came up with calling it OLW, but that has been around for a long time, probably before the non-tobiano genes were lumped into the "overo" term.

Actually she is a bay Tovero..thats the correct wording for her coloring PATTERN. Her color is bay. Tovero means tobiano with overo. She could throw Tovero, tobiano, Overo, or splash white if bred to another stallion with a coat pattern unless of course she is Homozygous for the Pattern, then she would throw nothing but colored patterns...She looks arab. Paints are APHA and Pinto is the other patterned registery.

Tobiano puts normal face markings on a horse. Blaze, strip, star etc. You have a very pretty Bay, Tobiano, Pinto :)
Paint is a breed and are a stock breed. I see you have a gorgeous pinto Arabian.
