Thanks guys. I ask because if you hadn't noticed, this is the same woman who doesn't care about frame on frame breedings. I posted this as another example of a "potential" lethal white and got into a heated discussion with a friend and local Paint breeder as she stated I was wrong because the stallion is tobiano. I said he was blatantly showing an overo pattern due to his blaze and blue eye, as was the mare. We worked out our differences and she said she's going to brush up on genetics but is quite adamant that tobiano is the only pattern on the stud, quoting UC Davis as her source.
Unfortunately, the argument "I know color experts on an online forum" doesn't hold up as well as "this genetics websites states tobianos can have blue eyes." It's unfortunate as I respect her beyond compare as a phenomonal barrel racer and trainer and she owns an amazingly talented stallion but he is frame overo, so the risk is there if you're not adamant about mare owners testing or assuming you "know" the pattern based on misinformation or that registries know what the heck they're talking about when labelling patterns/colors. =\
