overo x tobiano..

I am lookin at horse ads right now and I come across a mare that is said to be "overo"-- she is solid, wide blaze (not a bald face) forelegs have small 'coronet socks' and the hinds just regular socks. It shows her APHA papers, and I noticed her dam is a QH-- and sire is 'Tob/ovr'-- wouldnt that make the mare 'tovero' not overo?

I'd have to see the horse but unless the horse inherited the tobiano white pattern but just had Overo white then it would probably just be Overo. But it's really hard to say without a pic. Can you link to the ad?

She doesnt 'look' tovero-- isnt a horse that's tobiano & overo always a 'tovero'?

She looks splash and frame Overo she didn't inherit tobiano. I didn't explain myself good enough. I was saying unless she inherited tobiano which she clearly didn't she she can't be torvero a word I hate. She is Overo she has one or two Overo patterns. I'd think frame because the white has be restricted on the legs an the broadness of the white and splash cause of the smoothness of the white and its kinda bottom heavy. Both are Overo white patterns.

I thought if a horse has a tov parent that it wont be only overo, or tobiano-- thanks for clearing that up.

I also thought for a horse to be splash-- the horse had to have a bald face-- I wouldnt quite call that bald faced-- and had to have high whites?

That's where the frame comes in, frame suppressed the leg white it hates leg white and splash can be expressed in different loudness. It doesn't have to cover the whole face. I need Posiedon, ND, Chiilaa they can explain it better than me.

I think I get it-- what would her face marking be called-- bonnet, right?

How her coronets go up the backs of the fetlocks don't mean anything?

I don't know the generic labels for the white I just try to know the white patterns causing the markings. As for the little white triangles I'm guessing splash tried to put leg white but frame suppressed most of it. But I'm sure the others could tell you more. I'm still getting into the in depth genetics of white patterns I like dilutions better

Eh-- I just know enough about color to be dangerous. that's why I always question everything. Its interesting to me. Don't most of them go to school for color genetics?

Yeah I think some of them have. I have a biology degree and have had college genetics classes but I'm learning about equine gentics on my own with the help of the others. Gotta give credit where its due . They always answer my questions and I've learned a lot from them but I haven't got to their level yet but I'm trying. I've improved over the year or so I've been on this forum
