Bought Koda from the kill pen a week and a half ago! Sorry, this isn't a very important thing but I just want to clarify that he is a tovero correct? Because of the white that goes over his neck? I don't know if Im wrong so please comment and correct me if you would. Thanks:)

I am going to say Overo, but I am usually wrong.

Haha thank you:)I was calling him "the overo colt" the whole day until I won the sale and went to his stall. I had been looking at him before of course but hadn't really been focusing on his coloring. Only reason tovero went through my head is because of the white that goes over his neck/withers

No he is not "tovero." He is frame overo, probably splash and sabino. I would just tell people he is frame overo.

Tovero isn't even a "true" pattern and is extremely outdated. Tovero means "tobiano and soemthing else we can't bother to say what the other pattern is.)

Tovero is an outdated term to describe a horse with more than one white pattern being expressed.

In this colt, I'm seeing frame (because the color is literally "framing" the white), tobiano (because the white crosses his topline), and sabino (which is causing the "blurry" edges to the color). I'm possibly also seeing splash in the way there's minimal color on his belly/legs? Could be wrong about the splash.

Thanks! I am more involved in the AQHA world and know little about classifying a paint other than a tobiano or splash(easy ones;))

He looks tobiano with frame, sabino, and splash.
