If she ends up missing I have nothing to do with it.
She is really pretty, I know not much on paints so I wouldn't dare try and say anything. XD

She has pretty eyeliner like my sabino paint pepper. She is gorgeous I see sabino and tobiano.

Beautiful! I feel lucky that Caly has the eyeliner... I watched a tv show that showed the process some people use to actually tattoo white-faced horses with the eyeliner to prevent future eye issues. Didn't look like a fun procedure. Of course, they sedate the horse but it still looked unpleasant to me. Glad I don't have to worry about it!

Tovero, the horse has both tobiano and overo markings with a medicine hat, and the "paw prints" on the shoulders are typical of horses that are homozygous for tobiano, although I have seen a palomino tobiano that had "paw prints" that was not- so no garantee.

Justpow - Tovero is an outdated term that IMO should never be used. It covers to many things, one of them which is potentially lethal.

To be fair, the title asks what APHA pattern the horse is, and APHA only recognizes tobiano, overo, and tovero.

Verona1016, that is true. I should have been less specific in the title, perhaps. I just didn't want people to try to tell me what breed she is. She is registered APHA and her papers have her coloring listed as "TOB/OVR" which I'm assuming means Tovero. But I also know that that classification is outdated and has been for some time. So I was looking for an updated and more specific way to describe her markings and patterns.

Thank you very much! I think she's quite the looker. Even after this awful summer's heat and drought. I'm a bit irritated that her previous owner told me she would be fine on pasture alone... Didn't happen. It's been super hot and I didn't go ride much because we were both very sweaty and cranky just standing in the heat. Then I discovered that she was not only losing some muscle mass from not exercising regularly, but that she was dropping some weight overall. I immediately put her on Strategy Healthy Edge and her pasture is now supplemented with round bales 24/7. And now that the weather has cooled off a bit, she's back on a regular riding schedule. I hope to get her back into shape quickly... I'm kicking myself for letting her thin out at all. :( But learning from the experience is the best I can do. Sorry I got a bit off-topic here...
