Paint Colt

Alright, here is my new colt. Kind of wondering what he is paint wise.

Sorry for the bit of blood, I haven't got to many good pictures of him since that show off his markings.

I am thinking tobiano, but I'm not sure if he has another gene running in there. Though, based on his looks, what do you think? I understand that the only way we will know is a DNA test.

Tobiano + Splash. If he's going to be registered he should be registered as Tovero. Tobiano + Any other overo pattern.

The splash is causing the white to be super expressive on his face and the blue eyes.

Since tobiano doesn't cause facial white, he probably picked up frame from Joker. It would be interesting to use him as test subject for finding out what he got. Tobiano, frame, splash and maybe even some sabino just for kicks :)

I was kind of thinking splash, so tovero is definitely probably it. Also for kicks, what does his markings look like on his sides? Interested to see what everone thinks.

I was kind of thinking frame as well because of the almost bald face.

I don't think he has frame to be honest. I think tobiano, splash and sabino. If he had frame, I would expect some sort of restriction to his leg white, but that white is just going nuts

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I agree that I don't see any frame in him.

Most Tovero with frame you will still see white legs like that Tobiano generally is very strong in keeping the white legs

I am not saying that tobiano and frame should have minimal white on the legs. I just would expect to see some sort of restriction - high whites instead of white running onto his back would be the extreme restriction, but some colour over the legs or shoulder area would be a typical result from my experience.
