The way that gelding's white aprons over his face would qualify him for normal papers. My mare (avatar picture) is genetically a buckskin frame, but registered solid. Her blaze is her only marking and would be considered a "normal" face marking.

Aha! I see! Thank you!

So if I understand correctly, he is registered as a black overo paint. The people who sold him to you said he a was a solid paint. Correct?

If that's the case, the white on his face is why he is registered as overo.

My guess is the past owners either didn't know he was a registered overo paint and figured he was a solid; they thought the papers were wrong and decided he was a solid; or since he doesn't look like an overo decided to just call him a solid paint.

That's my understanding of the situation and my guesses as to the solid overo thing. And if he is APHA then you should be able to do APHA shows so long as you give proof of registration.

Have fun!

I show APHA. I can tell you his color is very desirable in competition - except for the color classs. It is much less white to keep clean and the solid color doesn't draw attention to movement, black is a bonus as well. As other posters have noted his overo status on his papers is due to his white on his face - it is enough to qualify for the regular registry, which is why he has regular papers.

It is good that he is regular registry. You have many more options when showing than if he was a solid, more classes, more chances at high points and more competitors - so he is worth much more money than a solid paint would be.

Congrats on a very nice gelding, have fun with him.
