Does this horse show signs of being frame?
I think he looks like it is possible. Mostly because of the way the body white joins to the leg white so minimally. Frame likes to stop leg white if possible, and this often displays as restricting leg white instead.

Frame likes white to be on the barrel of the horse, and the neck and face. White caused by frame tends to move horizontally along the horse, and usually won't cross the spine. Face white caused by frame tends to be top heavy, and likes to spread above the eyes. Frame can cause blue eyes. It causes white with jagged edges, but not with roaned edges, and not halos either.

This horse is displaying frame as you would expect to see it without much interference from other white patterns.
