Registries are notoriously behind the times when it comes to colors/genetics.
Take the APHA, for example. We know through genetic research that there are the patterns tobiano, splash, frame, sabino, and dominant white (I feel like I'm forgetting one lol). However, the APHA registry only recognizes tobiano, overo (which lumps splash, frame, sabino and dominant white into one category) and tovero (horribly outdated term meaning "tobiano and at least one other overo pattern, but we're too lazy to figure out which one").
