Ruger's Paint Markings?

So this is Ruger, my 3 yr old. I know he is a pally overo. It's Sabino too, right? And splash? I'm not totally pro on the splash/frame thing yet and identifying just by eyesight so I want to know what you guys think. ^^

Frame and sabino, splash may be there but it likes nice, neat edges, and his aren't lol. Frame is easy to spot - see the way the white is going along his neck but avoiding the edges? That is classic frame.

Is it splash that puts the white up under the chin?

Sabino likes chin white too. So it can be hard to see which is causing it. That's why other indicators are good, in this case I looked at the overall markings of the horse.

As well as the neck and body white indicating frame, when there is that much face white, you would expect more leg white. That is another indication that frame is present, as it likes to restrict leg white if it can.

Sabino can cause chin spots, and belly spots, as we are seeing in this horse. The big indicator for me though is not either of those, but the general "messiness" of the markings. Sabino is the crazy mofo white pattern, it likes to be all over the place.

Splash, while it does cause bottom heavy face white, also likes really neat edges, hence its name. Splash looks like paint has been splashed onto the horse, or like the horse has walked through paint, or put its head in a paint bucket. Clean, crisp edges is what you would expect with splash. Having said that, this horse also has higher white at the front, another indicator of splash, so it very well could be there.

Yes. The high white and chin were what made me thing splash. And the way the white avoided crossing the back screamed frame without a doubt to me.

But it's really interesting to see everything displayed in such different ways.
