Different type of paints

How do you tell whether a paint horse is a tobiano, overo, or tovero? And how do they vary from skew bald or pie bald?

APHA.Com - History of the Breed
The different links (Tobiano, Overo, and Tovero) on the right side will help.

From my understanding, piebald is black and white and scewbald is any other colour and white. It's not a term used a whole lot in Paints that I know of. I have heard it more from Europeans. I'm not entirely sure about it though.

It also helps to just google pictures. You'll notice the differences in the patterns quickly.

Here is a tovero foal that my stud produced also known as a medicine hat.

Aw, they are so cute(: And that really helps. So these are my observations, (correct me if I'm wrong)
- Tobiano have white on their withers
- Overo usually have a bald face
- Tovero are almost all white

Tobianos have a shield on their chest and at least three legs from the knees down have to be white. They also must have a solid colored head but can have normal markings on their face like a blaze, star, snip, stripe. White over the withers. They also have spotting around the coronet band.

Overos may or may not have a bald face. Overos don't have like a definite coat pattern it is a mix. Unlike the tobiano which has specific traits. The overo mare had this foal out of my stallion.



Toveros have both characteristics the only ones that are predominantly white are the medicine hats. They have a bonnet of color around the ears but could have a spot of color somewhere else. I would contact APHA and have them send you a poster of the different coat patterns.

Overos look like they're being framed in colour, hence how the Frame gene got its name.

I've always wondered about all this. Glad you posted this thread, OP. =]

For what it's worth, not all Paints have patterns. My mare's a Paint, but she's solid coloured. They used to be called Breeding Stock, but are now called "Solid Paint-Bred Horses".
