Paint Pattern?

I don't own this guy, he's actually up for adoption, but I'm really curious about what his pattern would be considered. It'll probably be exceedingly simple for everyone to figure out, but I'm clueless when it comes to patterns. Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this, since it is really just for my curiosity.

Thank you so much!! I was so confused for no apparent reason.

Yep on splashed white....commonly associated with deafness, so I wonder how this guy's hearing is.

Uh,I learn something new everyday. Where he's up for adoption they have requirements on the horses they halter train and saddle train so I wouldn't think so, but I guess you never know.

Splash overo for sure. Base color is chesnut/sorrel with flaxen mane and tail, because are lighter than the coat.
Any hearing abnormalities?

From what I have read, splash only causes hearing issues when the white extends over the ears. The issues come when the inner ear has no pigment. I could be wrong, but that is what I have heard.

The white does not have to extend over the ears for there to be white on the inner ear (which is what causes the deafness).

Correct. It's a lack of pigment inside the ear that causes deafness though it seems to occur more in relation with facial markings that near the base of the ear. Internal pigment can e really hard to actually see. My splash mares bald markings go nowhere near her ear base but she is completely deaf.
