    If she has conformation faults then she can pass that along to her babies. I should have said improving the breed, not adding sorry.

    I would definitely test her for frame, also known as lethal white overo. Her test results in that would greatly influence what stallions you could breed her to. If she does carry frame, then you would not want to breed her to a stallion that also carries frame, as they have a 25% chance of producing a lethal white foal, which will die within about 72 hours of birth.
    Also, regarding lethal white, her sire tested negative for it and the stallion I have selected is also not a carrier. Again, I appreciate your insight.

    The overo part she gets from her sire is recessive so she may be carrying that and pass it on.

    She also may have a tobiano baby if she gets the tobiano gene from the stallion you plan to breed her to.

    Do you have any idea what this stallion you plan to breed her to has already thrown? Lots of color? Tobianos? What about off solid mares? What is his percentage of coloured babies off solid mare?

    This will help you figure out your percentage of a coloured baby.

    The underlined part is not true. None of the genes lumped under the ambiguous term of "overo" are recessive.

    No worries. I would much rather remind someone who is already aware of it and come off as condescending than not warn someone and have them breed unknowingly

    Absolutely she can pass these traits on to her offspring. But I don't see what difference my single horse's conformation would make to the entire Pinto breed. I don't show anymore, I ride for recreation. The stallion I've selected and booked her with has excellent conformation. Hopefully the flaws that she has will not be inherited by her foal, although I don't think any of her flaws are terrible. My two greatest priorities are health and personality. Looks are secondary. Unless the foal has faults that will be detrimental to its well-being, I'm not too concerned.

    Not condescending at all! I'm pretty new to this, so more information is better than no information!

    According to the stallion owner, so far he has thrown about 80% colour from solid mares, and yes, all Tobiano. There have been some Tovero coloured ones, but only when he's been bred to an Overo. He hasn't yet sired any solid foals from Paint coloured mares.
