I was looking at the pictures of your filly again on facebook and saw some of your other pictures. None of the curb bits you're using have curb straps on them, which means they are all but useless in effective communication. I would recommend getting a couple and putting them on your bits.

Interesting. I have a Tobiano Paint with one blue eye... Does that mean she has splash or frame as well?

Yes. I am guessing splash based on the pictures you have. The way the white covers the mouth and goes up really leans toward splash.

Wow. I never thought any more about it. I just thought "yep, she's tobiano." This is very interesting. Thank you :)

splash is good at hiding sometimes. A friend of mine bred her two AQHA horses together. Both have a very thin stripe that sorta veers off to the side down at their nostril. Low socks on both (no taller than 3 inches). The stallion has a small fleck of blue in one eye.

She ended up with a super loud splash filly. High stockings, belly white, bald face...had to get her DNA'd to prove that daddy was the daddy too.

Whoa that's funny! My stallion is registered APHA, he only has a little white on his belly and high stockings in the back, and almost a bald face. Is he overo with splash or frame? Or just overo? Now I am second guessing everyone haha.

My bay QH gelding has white and black striped hooves, does that mean anything?

You would have to test him for frame, which hides also, but I would guess your stud had splash and sabino. "Overo" is just a catch-all term for three different genes/patterns: sabino, frame, and splash. Any one or combination of two or more is just referred to as overo.

I have to agree with everyone else, she looks like a greying black tobiano.
