N/O to N/N is a 50% chance of N/O offspring.

Frame overo hides under other patterns and even on solid horses, hence why testing is a MUST for any breed that is known to carry the frame overo gene.

The foal will die within the first 72 hours after birth when its first meals cannot be digested properly. The lethal white foal will be born almost pure white.

LWO - Lethal White Overo Testing
and 1 more reason why people should leave breeding to people who know what they are doing!!
