What Colour Type is She?

I'm pretty much clueless as far as far as paint colour types go, so could someone tell me what type of pinto/paint Tango is, and explain how you can tell?

Well first off, what breed is she? To be a paint they must be of either QH or Thoroughbred breeding (nothing else). If she were a mix of some sort or anything other than those 2 breeds above then she would be a pinto.
As for patter, i'd say Tobiano (possibly Tovero, but you'd have to have her tested to be certain).
Someone correct me if im wrong, but is it the sabino gene that causes the mapping?

She looks entirely like a QH, but she's not papered. So really, I can't tell you for certain what breed she is. Making her a pinto, I guess..

Check with the American Paint Horse Association. They will have accurate descriptions of the differences between overo, tobiano, etc.

Tobiano
(pronounced: tow be yah' no)

The dark color usually covers one or both flanks.
Generally, all four legs are white, at least below the hocks and knees.
Generally, the spots are regular and distinct as ovals or round patterns that extend down over the neck and chest, giving the appearance of a shield.
Head markings are like those of a solid-colored horse--solid, or with a blaze, strip, star or snip.
A tobiano may be either predominantly dark or white.
The tail is often two colors.

This is from the APHA. I think it pretty well describes your horse.
