Thanks for the responses! I thought her markings lean toward tobiano also, but what would cause so much of her face to be white? I thought that was typically not possible in a tobiano.

It could be the frame or could be splash. You are right, one has to e present to put white on the face.

Also, if ever you were to breed her, please be aware of frame and OWLS.

I'd say she is almost certainly, a homozygous Tobiano, with some forum of sabino, splash and possible frame. Definitely test for frame if ever breeding. Unfortunately, the way the APHA defines colour, is very outdated.

I had heard of lethal whites before, but didn't understand where they came from or how to prevent it from happening so I did some researching... I will DEFINITELY be testing my mare before I breed her. I was thinking of waiting a couple years, but am tossing around the idea of breeding her in the future since she's such an all-around dream (I'm biased, of course!). I had been looking into studs with homozygous tobiano patterns and it appears that many of them have already been tested for OLWS as well, so that's good. Also hoping I can find a stud who's homozygous for the black gene too, because a bay or black paint baby would be awesome. :) Thanks very much for your help and advice!

She is pretty. I always like a sorrel chestnut horse. The red colors really reflect the light ;)

Stevenson, she's actually a bay. She has black points on the tips of her ears, toward the top of her leg that has color, has a black streak in her mane and also on in her tail, so I'm pretty sure there's no sorrel or chestnut. Thanks for the compliment though, I think she's beautiful. So glad everything worked out so that I could get her.

She's gorgeous! I see tobiano, frame and sabino.
