This is a mare I have. I registered her as a "Bay Overo" I was wondering though does it look like she has Sabino? Do you even think she is Overo? She has two brown eyes but the one has a sliver of blue in it (not sure if eye color plays a part at all. Aside from the bald face and white legs her only other white is a small patch of speckled white spots on her left side back by her leg and a white "spot" on her right side (both pictured below)..

"Overo" is a really outdated term. It literally means "it has white, but it isn't tobiano". For the purposes of registration, yes, she is overo.

In terms of what white pattern she has, probably sabino and maybe frame.

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.

oh ok. Seems like a lot of the terms are "outdated" which makes it all so much more confusing. I try to learn as much as I can but there is so much to learn about colors I don't think I will ever get it all ;)

She'd definitely be one I'd test for frame.

I think she is most likely frame and sabino, but without seeing the rest of her face I wouldn't bet money against splash either- mostly based on the fact that her front socks are taller than her back ones. Can we see the other side of her face?

I'm thinking she's splash frame and sabino the facial white is pretty smooth looking.
