I'm thinking just frame and sabino, but am waiting to hear our resident expert Chiila's opinion

I see sabino, frame and splash. She has the arrowhead on the hind stocking that says sabino to me, plus some lip white. The face white is "slipping" off to one side, which I would consider a splash trait, as well as how neat that front stocking is. The body white is definitely screaming frame - it is moving horizontally on both the barrel and neck.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

This is not directed at ClaPorte, but I would just like to clarify her statement as not technically correct. I know you meant to say "no such thing as homozygous FRAME overo." There is indeed homozygous splash 1 overo which is perfectly safe to breed for.

I have a lovely, opinionated, very much alive boy waiting on me to get my butt to the barn to take care of all of his scratching needs right now to prove it is true. We all talk about how important it is to be as genetically correct as the current information allows when speaking about white color patterns, so I had to step in. I don't want impressionable people to avoid every type of overo just because of the frame overos.

Thanks CCH! Definitely meant to say FRAME overo's are homozygous lethal.

OP, keep in mind, there are 3 overo patterns, frame, splash, and sabino. So just make sure the stallion is frame free and your okay to breed to the other 2 overo patterns.

AnalisaParalyzer just test your mare- it's not expensive or hard to do, then you will know exactly what she is & isn't :)

People told me my filly looked frame, splash & sabino as well as Tobiano- but she tested neg for EVERYTHING except being a Homozygous Tobiano!

I don't doubt my filly may have other as yet undiscovered pattern/genes at work- but for right now, everyone on here was totally wrong on what she officially is considered to be GENETICALLY, so looks can be very deceiving lol ;)
