Coat pattern

I'm sure you're all sick of pictures of Aires , but I've been curious for a while what exactly his coat pattern(s) is(are). He is a true black and white, I know that much (his black does not fade). His sire is listed as a black and white tovero on his papers (Little Bit of Black Paint). His dam is a black Percheron with a tiny star as her only white.

Here's his left side (summer):

Right side (only summer pic I have of his right side)

Straight on:

Kind of from the top (so you can see his back):

I think he is a tobiano :) Never have been an expert on Pinto classifications though ;) He is a cutie!

I love the dam and the Aires very nice markings
And he is adorable
How tall is he ?

Thanks, Country Woman. Right now he's 16hh at the withers and about 16.2hh at the butt. He'll be three in May, so he's definitely got a bit of growing to do yet. String tests and height predictors place him around 17hh full-grown. He's going to be built like a friggin' tank, too (already wears a draft halter and bridle and FQHB saddle).

Looks like a classic tobiano to me as well, pretty guy, love his dam!

After looking up the various coat patterns, I'm thinking classic tobiano is where it's at with him.

I love his dam as well, trainerunlimited. She's a big (16.3-17hh), classic Perchie. Sooooo glad the monster is taking more after her in looks than after his fugly-a$$ sire!

Thanks, wares! I love my baby boy. Honestly, I know I've said it before, but if he ends up half as good-looking as he is in the first pic from last summer, I'll be EXTREMELY happy.

Haha, he is definitely a cutey! I love his color! I used to be a big paint person, then when I got a solid foal out of my gorgeous paint mare, decided I'd get into QH's, lol! I'm going to breed my mare to A Tru Rolex one year down the road and hope for a coat pattern like your boy in black or buckskin I can always hope!
