SplashedOvero can you explain something to me? The APHA only recognizes three of the patterns the following taken from their website "Although Paints come in a variety of colors with different markings, there are only three specific coat patterns: overo, tobiano and tovero" So how do you get the other coat patterns?

*sigh* Registeries are far, far behind the genetic advanments the world has made.

"Tovero" basically means a horse has tobiano and some other pattern but they can't be bothered to say what. It is an outdated term that should not be used.

"Overo" is also another outdated term that should not be used since there are different types of "overo" and one of them is lethal in homozygous form...

I would call them by their proper terms? Such as splashed white, frame and sabino? And if they were present with tobiano, I would still call them by their proper terms. So "tobiano and frame" etc. "Overo" and "tovero" are antiquated terms, and with current knowledge are no longer needed. To persist in using them is backward of the registries. The continued use of indistinct terms is dangerous to horse health as well, as one of the genes responsible is lethal in homozygous form, and so thus should always be named outright. To not do so lets it slip under the rug and be forgotten about.

Not exactly. They are lazy ways to refer to white pattern. "Overo" means "any other white pattern except tobiano" and "tovero" means "tobiano with some other white patterns thrown in". Both mean "we can't be bothered trying to figure out what white patterns are there, so we are going to lump them together for convenience's sake".
